Run on Hold until 1-Sept-2017
(Will be out of town all Sumer for work)
GMH helmets in gelcoat and fiberglass.
I purchased a GMH mold from FP last year for my collection and to make Wasteland and myself some GMH's as a fall project. Well my grand plans got side tracked when work kidnapped me for a few special projects, and I had to put the helmet projects on hold last year. Then after seeing a bunch of unanswered WTB: GMH threads and also a good kick in the but by Wasteland over some drinks around Christmas time, I started working on making some just after the holiday break. Of course, just as I started getting the ball rolling, I got kidnapped by work again for a few months and had to put the project to the side for the remainder of the spring. Now my work and home life schedule has stabilized, and I have had the time to start producing a product that I am happy to share with those on TDH.
These helmets are made of a white marine quality gelcoat and is backed by fiberglass layups. Squint edges, cheeks and vents have extra reinforcement to prevent cracking that can happen in those stress areas. Helmets are durable, but very light weight for prolonged trooping and are slightly roomier inside than slush/roto cast GMH helmet due to extra wall thickness the slush/roto cast helmets require.
Price is $310.00 plus shipping and insurance.
Included in each kit:
Resin ear pieces.
Separate RF pieces.
Resin RF stalk.
A Cast MQ-1 circuit board from one of my own MQ-1 calculators.
Visor (FP premium from t-visor.com).
*I will not be taking any payment upfront, I will provided you with a total when kit is ready for shipment. This will help prevent any future work commitments from delaying a pre-paid kit from shipping in a reasonable time frame and will keep us all friends. I will only be making about 4 kits a month at this time with my current commitments and will do my best to keep turnaround time at the minimum for those in need.*
**I will only ship international with actual declared value, and insurance! I know this can be a bummer for import tariffs in some countries, but I have seen too many horror stories over the years of items going missing or getting damaged in transit and then the seller is left on the hook for replacement/refund.**
***I have been getting a bunch of requests for replacement parts. I will do my best to accommodate folks as I have time.***
