Okay, it's been a loooonnnng time since I did any updates on Mardon's helmet (henceforth to be known as a MLC Helmet)
It's done. I've got one.
Pics will be forthcoming, right now I'm having problems with my photohosting service, I'm trying to get a buddy's site with the pics, but that's having problems too.
I will be having some pics up soon, even if I have others post them.
Some highlights of the MLC. It is fiberglass, natcherly.
It comes with:
Smooth surface, grey primered already. I could not find any areas that needed sanding.
Inside has been gelcoated for smoothness.
Visor area cut out. You will need to supply your own visor.
Ear pieces are cast separate, fit is excellent!
Rangefinder is a two piece unit. Bottom part is an opaque clear, top is primer grey, hollow as well to allow for user-installed electronics.
Stalk has a hole through the middle of it, allowing for wire for above electronics if desired, by user.
This is a film-sized helmet. Made originally out of cardstock and bondo (yes! Cardstock! ) The pics will show this.
It has plenty of room interior-wise to install fans, mics, any electronics w/ no "cheek-rubbing"
Because it has taken soooo looonnng for this update, those that initially contacted me, will get a break-even price of $200. I will begin sending pics via email to them, until pics are up. Inital reaction to those who have seen the helmet pics has been extremely positive.
After those are satisfied, the price is $250-
There are several top-quality helmets out there. All are excellent.
Get one you like, enjoy the one you get!
