    I think the Petrol (g6280) looks really good. I'm worried about availability. Would really like to be able to either pick it up local or get it for a decent price. I see it goes for $32+ on amazon.

    $32!? Absolutely insane.

    $7.75 on Blick Art Materials. It's where I get all my Montana paints. My last order was two cans of paint and it was just a bit over $5 in shipping. I'm in Florida as well for reference.

    It's a really great paint. It's dries quickly and hard. Pretty impressed with it. I went with the "military green" color.

    As I mentioned before, I am trying to use a 12 mm jump ring for the lens. At first I thought it was too big because it did not fit in the hole but then I noticed in image the ring is set behind the shield.

    So here is what a 12mm jump ring looks like set behind the shield (with duct tape). Not a perfect look but It might help others with sizes.

    Click image for larger version.

    Nothing yet. That's just duct tape in the image. I am probably going to use either a scrap piece of scrap plastic with flat black paint or black craft foam.

    You could also take a piece of soda bottle plastic and spray paint the back side black so the painted side touches the fabric and the unpainted side has the ring on it. That way the plastic isn't super thick but it gets the job done.

    I have been thinking of trying to drill out the side cylinder and install a light. I want to simply try to slide in a working mini light with a rear switch. Something like this:

    http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/ovIAAO...sn/s-l1600.jpg


    It is Dimensions: 3.86 x 0.71" which would make it a close fit. It also means I have to drill straight and clean without a drill press.

    I started building my own flash light but to keep it simple I'm using a 5mm led and led holder. Wired to 3 small button (watch) batteries.
    May give you a little more room to work with.

    Hey! I just noticed that this soldier is wearing two difference helmets.... One for the VD, and one for the film... Look at the insignia on the side:

    Well, the chinstrap clips are clearly the post-Korean era ones you see on 'Nam era helmet shells, designed to you could swap out chinstraps without a heavy sewing machine. The straps have been modified quite a bit, though.

    Added the strap camera and thickened the box.

    Been told the originals were cast from poly plastiflex which would explain deformaties and squashing in pictures.

    I was thinking they were probably vacuuformed, because of the cost effectiveness and the heat can deform them causing the deformity and squashed bodies. It very well makes sense they would be poly plastic though. Good catch!

    I heard they were made from sugar and spice and everything nice.

    Uhh...

    Wait..

    I might be thinking of something else.
