    many thanks gary for your vote of confidence on this one your right mate the prices were astronomical and to be honest way out of my league ,im more a bargain basement type of bloke ,i think its the only way us headgear collectors build up a collection ,i certainly couldnt afford to start up in the hobby now as for the fed helmet the prices seem to fluctuate ,one sold recently on ebay for around 250 quid but who knows in the future ,the price may drop out completely ,great news for the collector
    No problem at all, I most certainly desired one a while back but as mentioned these models were/are ridiculously priced for my personal budget. Following on from that I also agree with your point about not being able to start a collection now...the prices of the more unique helmets have rocketed in price

    it's going to look much better on display with the added Saddam insignia / now it's complete.

    are the originals also made of some type of moulded rubber or hard plastic?
