Looking nice. The dome sits a little higher than I remember it - is that caused by the dome receptor in the dome not being installed yet or something else?

No, I meant from the kit form to final form:

I know the kit is angled a bit more forward/downwards, but not enough to explain such a difference in dome placement.

Yes a beautiful helmet...I like how the paintwork turned out. That mask just screams ROTJ.
Ya, is it possible to lower the dome a bit? It doesn't need to come down much, but it does need to come down.

Couldn't resist a comparison to that effect....look'in pretty sweet...the cat's meow....

Image

Notice how the right side (Vader's right) of the U-shaped part of the nose matches the hero mask on the right, but not the left...was that intentional to match the mask to a particular onscreen mask? The part where the cheek halfmoon line come to meet the side of the nose....it is a complete curve on the left but shows that ANH/ESB crook on the right screencap.
