Out of the blue I just got an email from MR saying that my Rocketeer helmet has been shipped and is on the way to me. Woo hoo.
I received mine yesterday. Quick review- MR's is an idealized metal version with wierd welds, spotty brass finish and a somewhat messy joint in the back. I would have preferred a perfectly accurate fiberglass version. Photos of mine:Originally posted by rocketeer25@Nov 23 2005, 04:38 PM
Correct, they are not welds, but appear to be part of the casting process, but I'm not a metallurgistOriginally posted by micdavis@Nov 23 2005, 07:44 PM
It looks like the welds are not welds at all, not that I would expect them to be.
