Star Wars Rogue One Rebel - Left chest Greeblie

I used a Rogue One trailer screen grab from Cassian's chest greeblie and a few other references. It looks close enough for the Premier. I might make it more accurate once I get more info.

Star Wars Rogue One Rebel Helmet - Fabric

It was a big challenge figuring out the top section but  I was lucky enough for my cousin to be in town for December for a visit and Christmas. She is a clothing designer and was able make a patten from the reference material.

we calculated from the poster image that there are 10.5 ribbed sections and after a few tests we have a prototype.

The bottom strip is perfect.

 The Helmet with the top section pinned. Sorry its blurry only one I took.

 Started painting the Armour too.

Star Wars Rogue One Rebel Helmet - 3d Printed Mk2

Finished printing and prepping the next version of the helmet, looks much closer still a few things I might change but its defiantly close enough for the premier next week.





The helmet looks like a black or super dark grey. Looking at the Lego figure I picked up, it has the smallest metallic specs. fairly sure its metallic going by that. I think I will go for a super dark grey metallic.



Next is to finish the fabric cover for the helmet, then paint and weather the printed part.

Star Wars Rogue One Rebel Helmet - 3d Printed Prototype

After hours of deliberation over the reference material and replicating it in fusion 360 I have something to show that is tangible. I'm very pleased that the ReMake software was successful in converting the M1 helmet to to a 3d model and that I was able to scale it correctly. Now that the armor piece has been printed it actually fits over the helmet snug with a little room around the top for the padding that will be sewn into the baffles giving the helmet that rebel feel.  The 1st prototype is pretty close and having it in hand enables me to make a few changes.









The changes are;
Slightly lower the front brim of the armor.
Bring the rear top angle section further around.
The back grill panel needs to curve around the helmet more to match the top angle which will give more room for the grill section, and most of all be more accurate.

Star Wars Rogue One Rebel Helmet - Helmet Armor Mk3 Renders 95% done.

I'm very close to finishing the design work, the front is complete. The back needs some tweaking to match the reference material. Then separate it into printable sections, I want to make the vent section completely separate so on the off chance its not 99% I can swap it out.

Star Wars Rogue One Rebel Helmet - Helmet Armor Mk2 First Piece Printed

Printed the first piece, I'm really impressed with how well ReMake captured the helmet. The piece will need a small amount of modification.  Changing the location of the bottom crescent shape holes down a bit and adjusting the angle of the grooves going up the helmet so they match the fabric closer. . . .

I have just got a brand new Image and it clearly shows the helmet is a complete ring so this is not correct any more. I think thats very in line with the rebel helmets on Endor.  A few changes tonight and I think we will be ready to start the printing the whole thing. Im Very pleased with the flashlight, thats Bang on.
