Thank you for the compliment and for the advice on adding photos. Is that something I can do on my phone or is that only my pc I have an iPhone and can’t seem to get it to work

You can do it on your IPhone. I use an IPhone SE, and post pics just fine. In Imgur, just press and hold on the pic you want until the selection menu pops up. Once it does, select ďCopy LinkĒ. Finally, paste the link between a set of image tags.

So a couple things to note with this helmet model.

The details inset into the ear caps, don't pop out like they do on this model. They're added after the fact, which can be done either with stencil and paint or via decals.

Rangefinder stalk looks a bit small. There should be a portion that juts out forward into the topper more to help support it. I'd also recommend looking for either a metal stalk or reinforce one with metal rod as they tend to bend over time if not properly supported.

The keyslots should have a place to add to cylindrical greeblies, like the old dental files that used to be on the back of the ROTJ Boba helmet from the OT.

Lastly, the borden connector placement is off. Should be closer to the mandibles by at least an inch. Looks really far over on the cheek.

Kudos to you for getting a successful helmet print, but more to do on this model, I'm afraid.

Thank you for the advice and will definitely work on fixing all the issues. I printed everything to the scale that was provided he has also released a few updates since I printed this so maybe that will help with some of the issues. Does a layout of parts exist and if so can someone point me to it? I just donít know the names to all the parts and want to make sure I understand what needs to be fixed.

That's for Brigades though, and not for basic approval.

There will be a board soon just for Canon and Legend builds for basic approval, but for now this is the right spot for this build.

Thank you for the help like I stated my goal
Is to make the costume as accurate as possible so I really appreciate the help.
I have just started printing a new bucket off of the updated files that he put out and it does show the borden connector is in a different location as well. I am going to do this print out of PETG so it will take a little longer to print but will post an update when itís done.
