    Default Helmet Shelf

    Here's how I store/display my current collection, turning the top of by wardrobe into a shelf space. My M51 was being resprayed when I took the photo, so it's not pictured.

    I'm thinking of making some wooden stands to leave the helmets on. Maybe someone more experienced with storing helmets can advise for/against this?

    Comments & advice appreciated.

    I bought some shelving from a hardware store, cheap and easy to put together......helmets need a home of their own!!!!

    Hi Nitram,
    this is how i display my helmets on shelves, and the stick grenades i made in resin
    they make good stands.
    hope this helps.

    I intend to move many of my books to the spare bedroom so I'll have some free shelves similar to Dave's, to give the helmets a more presentable display space.

    The resin grenades are ingenious! Does it make a difference to the helmet's liners if the helmet is stored supported on the liner or stored as I have them now?

    This picture is a little outdated, but it seems you and I had the same idea. My collection is also atop my dresser.

    The use of stands really clears up room under the helmets for additional display space... although I feel my stands are too tall! I just need another shelf or something... I have around 10 helmets on my desk that need a home!

    Hi Nitram,
    No the helmets seem to be ok on them, i havent had any problems with the liners, but what i used to do is undo the liner lace and put the stand directly onto the metal of the helmet as i wasnt sure if it would do any damage. i made a mould and then used resin to make the stands and painted them. As said it gives more room around the helmet for displays.

    Love the helmet displays. I need to learn how to do resin molding, as I really like the grenade theme as helmet stand, and even the repro grenades are a little too expensive to use for this purpose.

    I use old wooden paper towel dispensers I find at thrift stores
    for a buck or two. Resting on a shelf is also just as good
    - they present themselves just fine.
    You may want to have two rows though, so the back
    row should be elevated on stands..........
