    Hi,
    Someone has gone to a lot of effort to produce this one.
    But failed on a few things i think, even the liner rivits are wrong they are to domed and to small. they look like mirror screw heads,
    could be a lot of money wasted there.

    hi Dave
    Sadly someone is going to pay a lot of money for a worthless piece of c$$$p. And think they have something rare, as in medium to well done!

    Great bit of detective work Johnno!! I love this forum!! Notice the fella's got Bobby Oxspring's bible, assuming it's original, it would be a great piece of BoB history!!

    All I will say is tread carefully if buying from this seller. E Bay feedback means nothing here.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Look closer at the 'rust' marks/staining on pictures 2 and 3. The view of the back of the helmet clearly shows 'rust' dribbles. The side view shows 'rust' with brush strokes in it along the skirt!!

    This is a common ageing process used in modelling by using enamel, oil or acrylic washes. This process is extremely effective in rendering a realistic finish when done proficiently, whereas in this case, it is not.

    At last look it was at 880 pounds sterling. These people deserve a damn good thrashing!!

    Regards, Ned.
