Hi guys.

Several months ago, I had the project to "create" a replica of the ROTJ v1 helmet (and on the same way, the ESB Mk2)

Thus I managed to copy a CAP helmet kit (I asked Chris before and he agreed). I know that it's still recasting and bad, it's why I didn't make a business with these helmets. It wasn't the plan.

It was more in order to have a "new" helmet (new shape) and mainly for friends. And of course, try the vacuum forming in "home made" style.

I tested several plastic (PETG, 3mm mate white ABS, 2 mm pinseal biscuit ABS, 2mm and 3 mm gloss HIPS).

Here are some finished helmets (I had several rejected pulls which finished into ANH/ESB helmets).

Essentially pinseal ABS and 3mm HIPS (yes, it's thick but damn strong!!!)

I have one (ESB V2 converted into ROTJ V1) and it's one of the best pieces of my whole collection. Freaking great finish and assembly.

As I told you before Fab, if you want to do another run I'm in BTW as CAP authorized you, I'm pretty sure recasting it isn't a problem...

Did I miss something here? CAP armor comes from recast TE2, (without permission) so how does that authorize CAP to allocate permission?
Not trying to troll, just wanted clarification.
