    James, I'll try my best to answer all the questions here, if I miss one, please excuse me and ask again.

    is that a garand in the back ground
    No, it's a USN training rifle modeled after a Springfield I believe. My kid knows but he is not home to ask at the moment.

    ,the flight helmet is super cool is it a gentex ?
    No, it is not a Gentex. Helmet was mfr'd by Bassons INdustires Corp, it still has the original lable inside. As stated in the original post, we need to locate a boom mic and inner liner. The inner liners are not to hard to come by but typically cost more than we paid for the helmet. We're hoping to sumble over a Great Deal one of these days.

    the russian lids look great the ssch68 lid has the frog cammo cover i think judging by the pics it really suits it
    The cover on the Ssh68 we have not been able to positively ID, it's got a very unusual stitching patter that I have only found on a Chinese cover. We are still looking for the answer to this one.

    ,nice googles are they 1944 style polariod's
    I belive they are the same style as the M44's, I'm no goggle expert and picked these up for cheep because of their poor condition, they looked good enough for disply. They are dated 1974 but I have not really looked in to them much.

    ,whats the lid next to the nam m1 is it an israeli orlite ?
    No, it's a US Military DH-132A Combat Vehicle Crewman CVC Helmet with Ballistic (Kevlar) Shell. Used from the early 1970ís to the mid-1980ís and manufactured by Gentex. It looks a lot better up on a stand but I needed the stand for another helmet so there is sits until a get a new stand for it.

    Glad you enjoyed. Russ
