hi ricardo saw this on Australian Ebay
Militaria: British WW2 RAF "C" Type Flying Helmet RARE | eBay
No goggles but seems cheaper because it is ebay i dont know if it original.
Its good to compare
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 ?
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:
'A Gathering Of Heores - The Last Reunion'
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.........
OK Steve, If you're disponible , please I'd like to see your Mustang.
I have some others models I had bilt some times ago, most of them are WWII fighters at the 1/48 scale, another one:
