    Byyynik,

    Some pics of the Kit in question, would help the Helmet Gurus here give you an educated answer. Why are pics needed, you ask? Well, anyone can say they have a Mystery helmet Kit for sale...some real, and some not [e.g. I have no idea where i got my helmet from, so it's a mystery helm. ]

    Anyhow, good luck!

    Stay safe,

    Tim.

    One word...No.

    That said, stay away from this guy...you'll have a much safer and better transaction with the Hunters here. It might take some time, but at least you'll be getting quality items.

    In fact, if you're willing to pay that price, look for SF [See PM], he's got a great helmet at that price.

    Stay safe,

    Tim.

    eBay.

    They are being sold by a seller called amiadfilter. Just do a search on this board for that name and read the threads that pop up.

    Re: Question on the mystery helmet

    Unless he's changed his materials, a Mystery helmet that specifically comes from SgtFang looks like this (please ignore the modifications and tweaks which are in white).



    Notice the cream/yellowish color.

    Now if you prime it gray, sure, it'll look like this:



    The eBayer's photos of the interior show fiberglass. As far as I know, the Sarge's castings are in resin, which means the interior is going to be smooth.

    At any rate, get it from the Sarge. He's here on TDH.
