There are no shortages of TOP GUN "Maverick" helmets for sale. I decided to recreate a REAL American Hero's flight helmet.
Col.Robin Olds was a triple ace,WWII-Vietnam. On 23 Sept 67 he flew his last combat mission. This was officially his 100th mission,but actually his 152nd flown.
This helmet represents the helmet flown that day.
No issued helmets were hurt in making this reproduction. HGU-26/P shell and visor cover,visor modified to look like an early version.Liner and avionics and other parts sources as used or NOS.
Any comments,questions or obscene gestures welcome.
