    V2 Helmet Interior Signup/Interest Thread

    Im going to do a short run on these. Once the rubber is gone, that will be the end of them. Ive got about 10 orders signed up, and should have enough rubber/foam for another 10. There are a few members that I have already spoken with, ill pull those in with this run so they needn't worry

    These are Nerf foam, with a rubber skin. Very soft and form fitting to the inside of the helmet. They can be painted with acrylics or rub and buffed.

    These are the V2 molds, with a lot more detail and sharper lines.

    Heres a set double sided into a helmet. And them laying on the banister.

    This is how they come out of the mold. Black metal with three different 'finishes' to it. Some shiny, some brushed, some matte, to give it depth, and the brown pieces are done with two different color rubbers/foams to give them a worn leather look.

    They will be $75 shipped in the US, $85 shipped outside.

    Theres one set in the cargo hold, all others will be processed and shipped in 2 weeks when I return from portugal.

    Heres the pics. Thanks for looking.
    Mason
    EDIT:
    I have rubber MQ1's. They are $5 more if you get it with a kit or ordered a kit. $7.50 single.
    They are supple soft rubber like the interior kits and they will go on the rear of the foam inside piece So your helmet can now be complete

    I did this one with brown rubber on top of black and it made it look rusty.

    Now that I rub and bufffed it, it looks a lot better than I thought

    And first perfectly. Finally

    Re: V2 Helmet Interior Signup/Interest Thread

    The ones pictured are exactly how they come out of the mold. I just rough trimmed some flashing and double stick taped them down.

    SInce I have rub and buffed them, and they look like gray/silver worn metal and leather. They can come like this no extra charge. It literaly takes me 2 minutes to weather them.

    NOTE: This is a special pair, done with brown rubber, over black foam, to make it look rusted, for me most pairs are BLACK rubber over BLACK foam for the metal parts.

    WOW MAson! They look great! And I see what you mean with the inside of the bucket painted a darker color to. They really look like they belong.

    Nicely done my friend!

    Re: V2 Helmet Interior Signup/Interest Thread

    Yah, I cant wait till ppl see these in person. I have about 5 pairs sent out. Jaing skirata/a'den skirata did a review of the v1's and i sent him the v2's to review as well.

    I have never met him, so it is a very un-biased review. The v1 review is at mercs.firespray.net in the sale forum thread like page... 7?

    Once he gets the new version he will review that one too. Because the process is a multi-part process, once these are gone, I doubt ill do another run. Ill just sell them in my helmets. They take a couple hours a set to run off.

    I just have a lot of down time right now, as im building a bunch of projects at once, and these are a hurry up and wait process. 20 minutes of mold painting, then foam, then wait for setup, then release and trim. I have 6 helmets total to build the interiors for myself, and once the rubber and foams gone, I think thats it.

    I also _think_ I bought a mint webley yesterday. Im waiting for the auction house to notify me, but I bid almost double the projected HIGH price. That will be my next project

    If anyone that has ordered but its not shipped yet, wants the BROWN rubber over black (last picture) let me know. Usually they are black/black.

    Also, please PM me if you want me to rub/buff weather it for you.

    Thanks

    PM's replied to.

    Ill be posting the official list in the top of the thread today, with status and tracking. Sorry its taken me so long to get that posted. Im just slammed, and when I say slammed, im talking about hulk hogan, top buckle, slammed with pms and trying to get these out

    More this evening.

    And if anyone has given me a compliment and I didnt thank you for it, as any of the people here that make and sell things will attest to, its the compliments, and the appreciation and not the money that make it worth while.

    Thanks again for the interest.

    Re: V2 Helmet Interior Signup/Interest Thread

    UPDATE:

    Well, this has been fun, and very rewarding for me. Its the first full run I have done in this hobby, and it has gone very well. Thus far, I have had no 'lost orders' and no 'unsatisfied people'. Granted I have only shipped about 10 sets.

    Moving forward, were nearing the end. I have a list of 6 people that were notified yesterday on the MERCS site. I have what looks like, if my math holds true, enough for 12-15 more sets, depending on bad pulls.

    Once the run is over I will most likely still offer the kits. But the price is going to go up to around $90 shipped in the US. This is because I will have to pay 3x as much for the rubber, to get it in a small quantity.

    (trial kit, $40, gallon $90 x 2 because its two kinds of rubber). A trial kit makes 3-5 sets. A gallon makes 20. The process takes roughly 2 hours for a kit + demold downtime.

    That being said, I want anyone tht supported the run, to be able to get in on this one if they want to. It will officially end OCT 1st. Ill be pulling parts and storing them until the rubber is gone.

    Thanks again for all the support, and send me a PM if you want a set.

    For those of you that I have already spoken to (points to fettdad) dont worry, im your huckleberry.

    Re: V2 Helmet Interior Signup/Interest Thread

    Bunch of PM's and PPs this weekend. Ill update the list.

    I have 5 sets ready to ship tomorrow. It hink theres 3 more on the list.

    Looks like im down to the final 10 ish available after that rubber wise.

    Im hoping some of the guys that have received these will post and attest on just how cool they are in person

    Im going to alumilite tomorrow to check my pricing etc. It looks like the new price, once the big batch of rubber is gone, will be $90 shipped once im only doing 3 at a time. This is because it will cost me a LOT more to buy the rubber in small quantities.

    Thanks, again for all the support. It really means alot to me.
