    First off... welcome to TDH!

    My advice to you is simple. Poke around the helmet section of this forum and you'll find several great options right away.

    It completely depends upon the level of accuracy you're looking to achieve and the amount of money you are willing to spend.

    I would say just hang out for a bit, watch the posts in the cargo hold and see what comes up.

    A couple of weeks after I got on here, a great helmet showed up in there and I grabbed it. People are always selling stuff, so jsut keep your eyes open.

    On the other hand, you definitely want to stay away from ebay, unless you know *exactly* what you're getting. Lots of people sell LOTS of junk on there!

    Awesome, thanks for the advice. I was searching EBAY, but was a little afraid of buying something there

    if someone from here posts in cargo hold that they've got something up on ebay that's a whole different story. but it's so easy to misrepresent stuff on ebay that you can get really screwed.

    I'll paint it in a very accurate ESB scheme for $165. Just send me whatever bucket you get sanded and ready to paint and it will be done. Would take me like a week, maybe 2 to get it done. Im only talking paintjob, no visor install, ect... Just pm me if interested and I'll send you some pics of my work, or you can just click my profile and check out some of the threads I started and you are bound to see a pic or two of one of my buckets.
