The eyes look to be trimmed very close to Simons helmet, but the helmet in the comparison resides in the LFL archives.

Well, damm :lol ...ok lets go on the hunt again.
Thanks Paul. :thumbsup

BTW, mhh... are this painted stripes in the teartraps under the eys?

If yes it would be helmet from a Stormtrooper not from a Sandy.
Than we search a Stormtrooper helmet and a Sandtrooper armor. :conf

It was a good effort Stefan, just not the helmet we are looking for unfortunately.

I wouldn't bother looking for a Sandtrooper helmet either. Simons helmet has the tear duct vent stripes painted on so we are looking for Stormtrooper helmet. I think I have found it in the pile of helmets outside AA, and I have definately found the Brian R and a found ESB too amongst them :toothy

I'll tell you why - sharing of information. Not all of us are the type to hoard LFL photos and then pm or email scraps of information to others who want to build an accurate suit.


Yet you go and post photos of your helmets and then remove them for the very same reason :rolleyes

The armor was made in white plastic. You can see the sheets behind AA in those pictures with the helmets.

Here is the Brian R helmet in the middle of the stack of helmets.

I am pretty sure the helmet to it's right is one of the found ESB helmets, I just need to find a better photo to compare it to.

I think they`re what was used by Ainsworth originally , but the art/design dept decided against them , replacing them with Hovis for filming.
