    Hi Steve,

    Based in your opinion, seems to me $500 for both in actual condition is a just price.

    As Michael77 says, it's good to compare. They are not all that rare, really.

    I think I paid $275 for my 'C' helmet and $85 for the goggles,
    but it took me several years to put the two together
    and I got lucky buying the goggles for so little.

    Naturally, you'd like to get them for as little as possible.
    Would your friend take an offer less than $500 ?

    Hy Steve,

    I offered him about $350 and I'm waiting his answer.

    Very nice your C helmet and your googles seems near mint. But there is another think in your picture thats capturated my attention too. I'm plastic modeller too and I have made a P-51 with the same Bodney markings as yours, here is it:



    And my idea is display this Helmet with my Meteor:

    If you haven't seen it, there is a documantary about the
    'Blue Nose Bastards Of Bodney', called:

    It is a really great movie.........

    Hi RR it is a early Type C helmet. I would'nt pay anymore than $200 as the leather is very worn ,the wire looms and plug are missing as are the earphone covers.

    You may have to look/order on-line. I think it is a 'SplitS' production.

    The P-51D Mustang is my all-time favorite allied aircraft of WWII.
    That one is a die-cast 'Matchbox' 1/35th scale. The 352nd's
    Lt. Col. John C. Meyer's plane.

    I do have a larger P-51 model which I built about 14 years ago.
    It has the markings of the 357th out of Leiston, England
    in WWII - 'The Yoxford Boys' - Chuck Yeager, Leonard
    'Kit' Carson, Clarence 'Bud' Anderson, but to name
    a few, were in this Fighter Group.

    I can post a few shots later if you'd like.........
    Regards,


    Steve.
