    Hello all,

    I wanted to post my recent acquisition that just arrived last week.

    I also wanted to thank bothanspy. Not only did he have the extra helemt to start with, but also helped me with information to contact Richie's Armor.

    I could not be more pleased with everything. Steve from Richie's Armor was great to work with. Very talented, and did a great job keeping me up to date, and sending progress pictures.

    So here is the final product.

    Sorry for the dark pics, but the light in the room was pretty bad.

    Thanks again to Steve (Richie's Armor) and Bothanspy.....

    That's awesome. I trust you either have or are getting a training remote to go with it? Then again it can fly solo by itself and still look great. Cool :thumbsup

    You got it man. I already have it (just waiting on the case). I also have the Luke ANH LE to go with the display. It should be pretty sweet.

    Glad to help, and it turned out GREAT (just like mine.) I have the same setup as you, with the remote and the Graflex lightsaber. Can't wait to see them displayed.

    :thumbsup :thumbsup :thumbsup

    I'll be sure to post some pics when I get everything displayed. I'm STILL finishing my basement. It's taking forever. I'm almost done. Just down to the trim and touch-up work (which seems to be the most difficult and time consuming)

    Thanks again bothanspy..... Could not be happier. You got me hooked on the helmets (thanks.... :eek: )

    Now I'm going to have to have another one made (just the regular flight helemt). I also love the Tie Flight Helmet. I'll have to figure out how he makes those too.

    Terrific looking helmet.
    I've owned an RA "Luke" style X-Wing helmet for years. It's definitely in my top 5 pieces in my prop collection. Mine was also painted by Steve. He's sure got some skills.

    Nice piece. I'm working on my Red 5 helmet's paint job right now.

    I have a Red 5 paint scheme helmet that Steve did for me an I absolutely love it. Your blast shield helmet makes me think I should find another Navy flight helmet. :)

    They are tough to find... I've only seen one since this.

    I contacted Richie about the Tie Fighter Flight Helmet. I think that's going to be my next one (until I can find a helmet to have converted to Luke's)
