James just stop for a moment and relax mate and enjoy the final evening of the year,all the best to ya buddy and keep on showing in 2014,nice set up BTW.......
thanks jake ,well i thought id throw one last lid in before the end of 2013 ,no celebrating for me last night as i was on out of hours call with work so tucked up in bed by ten thirty i wasnt woken by any fireworks either ,dead to the world ,here's the sateen stamp on the hood all the best to you too i hope you find what your looking for in 2014
Hi James,firstly happy new year, and the cover looks very effective. The originals have small holes on the side,but apart from that there's very very little difference. I have seen on another site examples of the M51 fitted with all manner of covers.I would recommend French Ebay as a source of the M64 Jacket hood
On a side note what pattern of hood is it you have fitted, I have never seen a British Olive hood with sateen stamped on it ,quite intriguing
Hi James, thanks for showing the Brit hood in more detail, I'm not too familiar with older Brit kit,so it's good to see this one
That looks pretty darn cool James! Nice job and credit to Opex for the idea, I have never seen one of these helmets before but my its a striking one! To me it looks like obviously based on the M1 but one that had a few puddings too many lol. Cheers! Sean.
thanks sean ,i reckon every helmet collector should at least have one of these ,i quess in passing they are like an m1 ,the share the same two part construction shell/liner ,the profile of the shell is as you say more wider though and it has a large flared rim ,its certainly a change from the usual us m1's and the euro m1 clones
