Hello, everyone.

I'd like to make an Endor soft helmet, and I'm having some trouble finding the ear cups for it. There seem to be a lot of potentials for sale online, but it's hard to tell which is the correct size and oval shape for this build that best matches the ones from an authentic AN-H-15. Does anyone who's made their own soft cap have a particular ear cup make/model that worked well for them?

Thanks!

if you make your own i would say make the inside of the cup from black fabric. Mine are vinyl and my ears sweat off after a few hours.

FYI: I also offer vac formed ear cups and can ship them with the Endor Donut helmet that you order for just a few dollars more.

Just having the measurements for them may not make them look accurate.
The first ear caps that I offered weren't shaped quite right even though I had accurate height and width measurements.

Photo unavailable

For the cups that I now offer, I got my hands on a real Vintage AN-H-15 soft pilots helmet, and replicated the shape as close as possible to make them look like the real thing.
