    Default HB-7 headset ear cushions search

    Hello Gent's,
    I have a HB-7 headset with out ear cushions. I found the later black foam MX-41/AR type, But I'm looking for the earlier large brown rubber one's. I want to make up a B-17 pilot setup and need those to fit the correct time frame.
    This is a pic I have of one of the pilots that are on that list I post on April 13th to honor the men that died on the Schweinfurt mission that took place on April 13th 1944.
    The ones he is wear are the type of cushions I want. Original or reproductions, as these are hard to find. I was told that there was a Gent in England that sold repro's but my source of info has lost his card and doesn't remember his name.
    So any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Rene,
    I was just on that site before I logged in here.LOL
    Yeah I saw those and thought they were a little on the rough side and I have the headset already in really good condition.
    Was hoping on finding some cushions to slip on mine, I might have to go the Big Buck method and find a headset with them on it already in good condition.
    These are hard to find and only pop up every once in a while.
    I do appreciate you finding those
    I do have a set of really nice later foam cushion coming, But wanted to replicate that Photo.
