    G'day RAEME,

    Aust made helmets are not rimmed and the chin straps are not typical too. Any markings on the shells (helmet chinstrap hooks too) and liners?
    Regards

    Hi Mate. I had a good look, can’t see any marks on anything or anywhere.

    Here's my UK made shell fitted out with a Aust made liner and chinstrap for Aust use for a comparison.

    Cheers Mate. The liner and the chinstrap attach points look the same as mine. But chinstrap is just a one piece webbing, that’s the part that makes me lean towards replicas. Under the green paint on one white is coming through. So it’s been painted at some time or other. Nets look like the real deal though. I’ll try and pull the nets and strap off etc and see if I can find any marks hidden. Your helmets look good.
