This is going to be so exciting! Awing Did I also see in the thread that you are going to do chest boxes? I have a box started (about 50%), and now am wondering if I should continue???

Hey question, looking at the pics you've posted, are the helmets sized so as to take into account the softcap that has to be worn underneath it? It looks a little tight on your head. (BTW, what's your head size to give us an indication.)

That's a good question. Though it looks like there's a little space between his head and the helmet, and once the helmet is hollowed out it looks like it should fit a cap, depending on the thickness of the material used.
But then you also have to take the lining into account...

And if the helmet is anything like the B-wing pilot helmet, it's designed to sit fairly snug on the head. The Y-wing and X-wing seem like they're fairly loose and easy to get on, but at least in regards to the B-wing, and I'd assume the A-wing helmet seeing as they're along the same shape idea, the helmet is small and tight.

I don't know if you've seen any pictures of my wearing the screen-accurate B-wing pilot helmet, but once the lining is on there is no space between the head and helmet... at all. It sits right up against the head. It's one of those helmets that if you have a really big head you're crap out of luck, 'cause it wont fit you. Laughing

They're is a fair amount of space between my head and the helmet and it is hollow currently. I have a big head 7 3/4 hat size so. I made it sung for me so it would fit a wider range of people but now that its gonna be vac formed you can just shim it wider or smaller to fit your head alittle closer then just pad it ti your liking.

I saw your box Todd. It looks good. I'm gonna make vac formed boxes and resin greebles.

So what's the verdict, then? If you vac cast, will they be available this year?

Oh yes, right now this makes sense. I am basing my dimensions on his and then using a thickness of about 2.5" (~ 6.5 cm).

Going the vac formed route Alex. I won't need funding to do it sense I already have a vac table and plenty of plastic. I'll be able to make quite a few with what I already have. First pulls coming soon. Stay tuned. Wink
