    Availability as soon as I have ensured its a good proof of concept. I will print in batches of 10 and include the torch too.

    I'm definitely interested in one! Depending on price, perhaps two.

    Thanks

    I would probably be interested too! Where did you get the guts from?

    Very nice, although I think that the blast shield shouldn't be military green.

    It's actually suppose to be a deep bluish grey. I've seen guys do green, black, and grey since it's hard to see in reference pics. I have another kit inbound along with the proper color.

    Just "finished" my second blast shield (left one). Pretty happy with it and I think the color is pretty close. Will now do yome more weathering. Beside a silver base coat and the satin black and space from Montana, I now also added the Tamiya Gun metal and some vanish. It appears more blueish then on the picture.

    Next I will make the leather part on the gin strap. Soon I will also get the fabric cover from Canny. The one you see is from Mr. Hemmings. Fits like a glove but some details are wrong.

    Great work! I like it a lot; space looks like a good color. I might have to build a third one now...these buckets are addicting.

    Is Canny currently doing a run on covers? I think mine is from Woody. What's the difference between Woodman, Canny, and Hemings?

    I got these bands and was able to trim them to a thinner width. Came in a 3pack for testing cuts and widths.

    Today I finally received a set of rubber bands which I ordered from this source in Canada (I am located in Germany): https://www.militarytour.com/german-...lmet-band.html

    To be honest I was pretty pissed when I opened the package and all I got was some shabby sliced rubber tire. I knew that the rubber bands I ordered are not like in the movies (seam in the middle is missing) but from the pictures, it was better than everything I was able to get in my country. But after having a closer look and turning them inside out, I found that one rubber band has a seam very close to the ones in the movie. Have a look on the picture:

    I have to strech the rubber band quite a lot and at the end it is about 1cm high and looks even more like in the movie. I will trim the edges and put it on the helmet later.

    I think that's two individual bands. The twist is the tell.

    For sure. I was talking about the seam in middle of each of those rubber bands.
