I constructed this hat based on the description provided in the CRL for the Celebration Scene Rebel Trooper.

Quote:

Unique tan/cream/beige hat.

1. The brim has a rounded shape, not "squared off" like modern caps.
2. There are no rows of top stitching on the brim like on the Imperial caps or modern caps.
3. The cap is constructed from six segments, with a one of the seams in the center of the cap (you can see them in the backs of the hat, and by the way the material dips between the seams).
4. The cap is constructed to follow the natural contour of the head, and not present a "hatbox" shape with vertical sides or front.
5. There are no grommets on the body of the hat - metal or stitched.
6. Caps are made to size, there are no adjustable tabs or straps on the back of the hat.
7. There is no top "button".
8. There is a flap on the rear of the cap, that appears to be about 1/4 to 1/3 the width of the overall cap. It is much shorter than the Rebel caps worn on Endor.
9. The flap has a edge trim possibly 1/2" wide. It is not known if there is visible top stitching or if all the seams are inside (like the Imperial caps).
10. The flap has a gradual curve from the ends, reaching maximum height at the rear of the cap. It does not cover the ears, in contrast to the sharp rise as seen on the Hoth caps.
To be accurate, these hats will have to be constructed from scratch.

Hats & mostly everything sewn are by no means "easy" to build. I have a lot of detailed construction photos & notes here:

http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=54653&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=30

Any of the hats need to be constructed to fit.
