Aaahh One day , One day!! That is such a fantastic looking helmet Todd! I am still waiting for a nice double decal police helmet to come my way. Leon.

A great lid!
If I may suggest, there is a photography technique that you might find useful in addition to your nicely improvised light box.
I imagine you are shooting with a DSLR or point and shoot? If so then you may have access to a focal setting called 'spot focus' or some similar term. If you select this setting then essentially the camera will focus and set its light metering on the center of the subject and anything further behind (like the towel of your light box) will be out of focus and over-exposed giving less (or no) definition to the background. This resulting image will tend to be one of the subject floating against a background of white which if done right can make for a nice shot. You may need to play with the overall exposure setting to compensate if the shots are too light or too dark but I think your helmet could look even better shot in this way.
superb helmet. just got home from a long day. but its looking at helmets like this that ends the nice. thanks for posting.
Another visual treat through both the helmet and photos Todd!
