GOOD PRINTING ALL!! (sorry these pictures are distorted)
Rejoice, as I am releasing Version one (V1) and Version two (V2) of my Star Wars Episode 1-3 Senate Guard Set! (Yes, the Royal guard/ Royal blue Smerf guard).
The ones that protect Queen Amidala and the other senators though out the prequels. The helmets are the exact same, but the "Mohawks" I have made interchangeable. The Ep. 1 "Hairy Hawk" is a pain in the butt to do, but I will link a tutorial on the way I accomplished it. Don't let it discourage you, it's just $10 of synthetic hair, WIG hairspray, and a lot of time! Totally worth it in the end though.
My personal helmets made from this print (and a simple royal blue paint job) are approved in Rebel Legion and the Ep. 3 onto the 501st (as the 501st does not have a CRL for Ep. 1 yet) With some elbow grease it should be EASY for you to use this in your costumes to get into either group!
(V1) is ONE Piece and will slip over your head. It can be a bit of a snug fit through the neck, so measure wisely! (I wear a 7 1/4 inch hat and am probably the largest you'll want to have to fit in the V1 without resizing)
(V2) has a removable face shield (as the original helmets in the movies did) and will fit even the largest of heads more accurately because there is no neck funnel! The V2 is equip with holes for magnets and pin points to help align the shield in place, although it is not easy to get this right.
Episode 1 Mohawk is a trench design, while Episode 3 is a "filled in" version. Both mohawks fit the helmet and are simply attached with 2 short wood/sheet rock screws. Episode 3 helmets will need to be fit with a molded plexi-glass shield. I just placed a 1mm thick piece in the oven until pliable, placed it in the helmet, squished it down, trimmed the excess, and sprayed it with a transparent "model car tint".
I have worked on perfecting this helmet for the past 4 years. With many trial and error prints, it is finally ready for you to try on! DO NOT BY ANY MEANS sell my Files. These are by a fan FOR THE FANS!
This STL is not for sale or should ever be for sale. Help others by printing it for them and please don't overcharge for your services. I love what the Thingiverse community, as well as the Star Wars (Pre-Disney) has done to help me succeed and I hope that this can help you too.
P.S. Please ONLY link these files from this site only and give credit where it is due!
I have had very good luck with PLA on the Creality CR-10 S5. 1.75mm, 200 degrees nozzle, 40 bed. No rafts, just using CURA 4.3 or higher Tree support. Print the Helmet UPSIDE DOWN, it will need little to no support.
