    Another option is Skygunbro, a very good starter helmet if you ask me. I have one and I think its great. I would say MS if you are going for a super accurate display piece but I wouldn't troop in something of that level. Especially if you are going to paint your own helmet, get a starter first, perhaps even a rubies and practice. In my opinion the MS, BM, and SGB all have high points, its all a matter of personal preference. I.E. money, accuracy... ect.

    What price range are you looking for? PM me if you want. MS is top notch, but there not cheap. Don Post 95 are good but there getting pretty hard to find. Rubbies (I'm sorry to say) suck big time for Boba. The Jango are better.

    you could buy a rubies jango helmet and re-paint it. Theyre like sixty bucks.
    you could also get contacts, thats what I did.

    Just to let ya know. This hobbie is addicting and you will end up buying the best stuff eventually anyhow, so save your money and get a good one. Seeing how your in the UK, BM is a good source for you.

    You can't go wrong with a BM, whilst I don't wear glasses my brother does and he's had no problem wearing them under my helmet.

    My advice for you is to try on different helms if you have a big head (like me). I tried on 6 or 7 and only the MS' helm fit. BM's are cool, but have the brow dip, which I am not exactly fond of, but if you don't mind it then go for it!
