Just saw this thread - gorgeous helmet, bro. Also quite a nice camera you got there if I may say so :) And I agree: There are definitively way to few high res shots of vader helmet or parts here on the den.

Cheers

It's brought up in the past, and I agree, the dome probably should come down a smidge. What's the best way to lower the dome?

My first thought was wrapping the mounts in blue painters tape (inside and out), then using a file to file away a little a time until it sits at the height where I want it.

Any other ideas?

Thanks,

c

That's what I did years ago on my DP DLX (now sold), it worked a treat :thumbsup

Getting all giddy and anxious - the TM ANH finished by VaderMonkey arrives tomorrow. How do I hit fast forward?...
