    Hi Navyman,
    This is what i use for helmet stands i make them out of solid resin
    and paint them, I like them as relic as it gives them a good look.
    and they look good with all types of helmet.

    Hello again Panzer 3,
    I'm very impressed with your display stands and would like to make some myself if you don't mind me copying your method? If OK with you could you let me know which resin you use, I have a repro stick grenade which would make a good pattern.
    Thanks for your interest, best regards,

    I've been using aged replica german gas mask cannisters with lead weights at the bottom for the two helmets that I own at the moment, I'll get some pictures up as soon as I get my camera working again

    I keep my eye out for ex-hairdresser Glass heads !
    .. No problem with foam or rubber contamination with these, and they look good !

    Good morning all,
    I've been looking for the glass or polystyrene display heads in all the local charity shops for ages and havn't found one yet. They seem to be as rare as rocking horse sh, (sorry), hens teeth, here in the South West. I get some funny looks when enquiring about them, people usually stare at my head to see if I'm wearing a wig.
    Thanks for the suggestions,

    They can be made in a transparant resin!
