That made me think of a Vietnam era helmet. The box on the side looks like how U.S. soldiers put cigarette packs in the helmet strap.
That looks about right. I'm interested to find out what that box is. Since in Vietnam the strap was used to keep the canvas on the helmet, soldiers used it for holding their bug spray, cigarettes, playing cards, or even a lucky bullet. Hey it might even be some death sticks
When I saw this poster I thought the same thing...I want this! Nothing cooler than a Vietnam/Star Wars mashup!
M1 helmet with Endor rebel trooper ribs on top, front piece of armor and E-11 power pack on the helmet band.
I just saw this poster this morning, looks great! If you zoom in you can see that there are two thin rubber bands going all the way around it all, keeping it on. I just wish I could see the armor on the back!
Also, don't think they kept the chin strap the same, looks all cotten and different maybe, no clasps.
Is this what all the rebels will wear in this you think? Picked up a veitnam helemet and liner for $20 a while ago, time to put it to use.
Maybe they took a pattern from the Vietnam M1 helmet and they placed the pattern on some courderoy? The material looks alot like a courderoy-type fabric.
I'm so pumped to start this helmet. It'll probably just sit in my garage for a while with the other 50 projects I havnt finished though:/.

It may be a European brand I'm not familiar with. You can even see where the ear cutouts are, definitely some kind of action sports helmet.
Still hoping the box on the strap is a pack of death sticks
i love the vintage war feel..

The helmet looks so much like a M1, the chinstraps even look like pre 1973 T1 chinstraps.
