    I know there are a couple things that aren't perfectly accurate, and the tube stripes are missing...but I built this helmet up recently and am pretty happy with it for a display piece. Let me know what you think

    Wow, that's pretty good! Did you put foam in the inside? That looks amazing, keep up the good work!

    im not a TK expert but you might want to get rid of the duct connection insulation and switch to a rubber piece.

    other then that awesome helmet!

    Thatīs an MRCE lid. But did you get it like the first pic? In kit?
    Looks good though! You might want to sand the inside of the eyes a bit and fix the seams around the ears and dome. Just my 2 cents.

    Cause those lids come finished and are really inaccurate, but definately make good display pieces and most people donīt see the difference in design:P

    Hereīs a comparison with yours, mine before and after mod work:

    lol, i know. I own a few of those too. I got a face plate mold off of ebay awhile back that claimed to be original....obviously it's not since they just made a positive of the mrce faceplate. But I tried it out for the heck of it to see how it'd pull the detail and it's good for just display. i might rework it to fix the teeth situation, but it was fun building a helmet kit without feeling it's expensive and something could get ruined.

    i also didn't want to use the best tk accessories as i have no intention of using the helmet, thus $5 of hardware parts finished off the rest of it.

    Hehe Yeah there are always some easy cheap tweaks that can be done. I too would not spend a lot of good TK stuff and money on something like that. But it is fun to what you can achieve with a minimum of money and parts!
