I'm not much of a grill kinda guy, but isn't option A the most accurate for a RotJ reveal Vader - none of the options fit any of the others, as far as I'm aware.

The front grill you are using is ESB. From what I understand ESB did not have a second layer of smaller mesh. ROTJ did have it and looking at your samples, B seems to be the closer match but in a horizontal orientation.

Here is what me and other Vader builders have been using and gotten great results:

Gracias Juan!

That helps a lot. I am going for an ESB, but you gotta have screen to hide the inside, like fans or microphones or even yourself.

I would love to get the material you showed me. It was always my initial idea, but that’s the smallest hole size i could get without costing an arm and a leg. I found one that was just perfect, but it was stainless steel and was only sold in 4x6 ft. Sheets. Not cheap!.
