The lighting setup was more elaborate in ESB than in ANH. ESB made use of more light sources that glanced across helmet which highlighted some features and cast shadows across others. And this could cause the center strip to look sharper in some scenes and wider in other scenes. The center strip modded just at the front with the rest as-is would probably look fine.

The black nose / fat lipped Vader was the reveal helmet which did look a bit strange.

Ah interesting info with the reveal.

And about the stripe..yes I think they added the material on the right side on the front because they wanted the stripe more symmetrical.

The TM dome I believe would the best available reference for ESB to see these details along the center stripe.

Just a few data points from the domes I have, showing the curvature side-to-side at the top middle of the dome. Certainly more rounded on the DPDLX and DPCA than screen-used, but in some ESB scenes you can see some slope or railroading on left and right sides and curvature across the width of the center stripe, perhaps then not as flat as the ANH dome.

We are on the propden...so I think we could find somebody with a TM-helmet to teach us! :wink:

But I think I also have a good pic of the TM domes front for this question:

Image

It looks like that the stripe is smaller on the front...but its an optical illusion..when you copy a piece from the top all over the stripe you can see that the dome is thicker.So I think they added material on the right side...on the left I´m not so safe,because this could also be a casting defect only on the TM.

Image

But it can also be a reflection of the right side of the dome on my pics before...on this it not like added much material...more like a sanded edge..and on the left side it looks more like grooves along the stripe.
