    Hi James, another excellent addition, as you know I am particularly keen on collecting these models myself ,so never tire of looking at others examples.

    Pity the chinstraps and suspension is missing, but it has most definitely seen some action...another classic "bring back" from Operation Granby, nice one buddy

    James:

    Besides protecting someone from windblown sand, is the fiber material good for steel travelling at high velocities with jagged edges. (I'm joking a bit in my analogy but it's a serious query).

    Thanks!

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    LoL... He rocks the wearing that lid!!

    But ya gotta wonder who even thought of the idea for a paper mache helmet! Must have given the troops a lot of confidence when they went out into battle.

    i totally agree michael perhaps the mind set of the iraqi soldier was to believe these were made of a ballistic fibre ,but hey who knows what they were told
