    Well - I finally unearthed the last of the helmets that were supposed to be auctioned off at the FIRST Vintage Torque Fest.
    yeah - yeah - I know...organization is not my strong suit....
    This was a very popular one and the work that went into it was crazy.
    Lace work - striping - super nice.
    Den Oliver did the pinstriping and Oliver Group did the super cool bag that comes with this amazing piece.
    Thanks to all involved and hope that you will want to bid to help out with some medical bills.
    For those that dont know what is going on:
    www.helpinghannahsheart.org
    This auction $$$ will go directly to the Hannah Wells Medical Trust. Info on payment will be provided once the auction is complete.
    Thanks
    For those that dont know about the art show we have every year in conjunction with Torque Fest - you should check it out.
    This year we will be getting artists from around the world to do their version of Rat Fink!

    At the shows these helmets were bringing about $125-$200

    Thanks

    This is a direct cast off of a German M40 Helmet that I provided Jimmy Flintstone. This is NOT a real helmet - this is a resin piece that is designed for art...not for function.
    I have had people purchase these and put liners from military surplus shops in them. The helmets are XL but if you put a liner in - you can make them the size you choose.

    Doug, It will look the best with the other 5 I already have.
    This is the last one I/We really wanted, Along with Tillrock's and Lozeau's.

    John, After I win this I'll kick in extra for a Weesner print, If you have any left.
