    Hi Steve, I am sure other's here will give you a clearer idea but when doing them myself I try to look at as many close up pics of originals as I can before hand focusing on the bale and strap joining itself. Then match the fold, Tack it with a pin and start the stitch. I know originals were machine done but plenty of originals were re done, Period repaired by hand. I don't think there is an actual regulation on the fold length etc but could be wrong, Like said I just match by eye and it usually turns out okay. Best of luck pal! Can't wait to see this one finished! Cheers, Sean. EDIT. I have attached a pic below similar to what I was describing.

    Thanks Sean, looks the way to go, need to have one last push here with this get the straps on , reveal the rim , get a net and decal, now which ones? so many to pic, Captain Miller yes the film inspired me but not for this helmet something simple will do, next up the liner, if you thought the helmet was a challenge wait until you see this.

    It's really moving on buddy, you could always age the straps to fade the colour out a bit,look forward to seeing more stages of completion
