    Jun 19, 2009, 11:30 AM - Band of brothers M1 helmet #1

    I'm looking for some decent quality pics of both sides of any of "E" company's helmets not really the officers ones.
    I can't seem to find any 2 pics that would show both sides of a particular helmet or are of a quality to show the damage, paint variations logo placement etc.
    Anyone got any auction pics or actually own a hero or stunt piece?

    Are you looking for the Spade detail? I could get you some screen shots from the DVD but I wont be able to get them until late Saturday or Sunday. Check out this page for a real helmet example.

    I know I saw a BOB helmet on A WW2 reenactors equipment web site but I cant seem to find it now must have sold. Im also looking to pick up a M1 helmet to start my WW2 impression.

    Thanks, I have the dvd in a box somewhere.
    I was really wondering if anyone had shots like this -
    from yourprops .com
    I'm putting together a complete 101'st uniform myself. Mostly for airsoft as I'm using a lot of "close enough" parts.

    I got an M1 shell for about 10 that may be either a post 43 or Korean war shell. A plastic 70's liner just for comfort. The 3 price tag helped too.
    I'm just going to make the A-frames from 3/4" canvas webbing and save 20

    I'm not sure whether to go for a specific character or just a generic trooper.

    I have a screen used one sitting in my living room that I acquired from someone here a few years ago. I'll try and remember to post up some pics tonight when I get home. Did you need just the outside or did you want shots of the inside as well?

    Just outside pics for me, I'm doing a budget version and the full M1c liners are about 50 more than I've spent on the full helmet so far!
