Specifically, a helmet that fits Longbow Studio's headsculpt of Captain Miller. I am doing a kitbash of him and have tried a variety of helmets on him but they all look two sizes too big.

Does any one make a smaller 1/6th scale M1 helmet or know of a technique to make an existing Dragon helmet look smaller?

Thanks!

If you can, try to get a hold of the older BBi M1 helmets. They are smaller and I know there is a 2nd Rangers one that they made. You might just need to replace the webbing straps

I remember reading someplace (I have to check my sources) that the actor playing winters was in just a liner. The actors head being long and narrow he looked lost in the helmet, so they added a strap to the front of a liner and there you go. DiD's metal M1's have liners.

This little tid bit has been bugging me since I first read this thread yesterday. I been through all my Band O' Brothers reference material and I can't find the info. I'll watch the making of disk that came with the box set tonight.

Hmm... are you talking about Damian Lewis in Band of Brothers or Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan using a helmet liner? Because it sounds as if you've confused the two...
I thought I was talking about Damian Lewis, but who knows... I don't exactly have a photographic memory, more like a doodle-graphic memory. If I shake my head real hard and can even erase. :p
