"thinking outside of the box"
Stunner, has it got a liner ?
Thank you for the kind comments, it didn't come with a liner, theres faded initials inside the pot VLD or VLB
The net feels pretty stiff, I think it's been on it for some time now and it'll stay on it.
The Vet used brass wire to secure the chinstraps, something I haven't seen before, it would be cool to see if there are any other examples that have had that done.
Both straps are like this.
(Fooling around with image resizer, lighting)
The wired-on straps are a great field modification, just the icing on an already sweet helmet!
