There are some authentic copies of the "Hunters" flight helmet(s) in private collections.

Having not been so fortunate as to acquire an original, I decided to do a tribute APH-5

for VF-162 during the Vietnam war. Duplicolor paint rubbed out to near lusterless and 

the remainder of my yellow Scotchlite 580 (not 680) from years ago.

Fantastic looking set!  I think it's great to give some of these old helmets a new life.
