Help Finius Find A Helmet!

Recommended Posts

AF-UK!

 

It's New-Year-New-Loadout time again, and this time I've decided to go all out. I've got the plan mostly sorted, right down to tactical underpants and stuff (I actually have some rather sporting hawaiian floral underpants which will do nicely). But what's causing me grief is the helmet.

 

Essentially, what I want is this: 4izbm.jpg

 

Which looks freaking awesome.

 

The problem is, I have absolutely no idea where to start gathering the proper bits together!

 

So far, my best guess is the following as a base:

 

http://www.actionhob...-FG_A10IX2.aspx

 

Which has the NVG "socket" mount, and the side rails, it's also got SOME of the velcro and the goggle bungees.

 

What I need to find though is an NVG mount and dummy NVG, some more velcro and most importantly, the comms (goggles and an imitation strobe not so hard).

 

I'm not too worried about spot on accuracy (I know the helmet is a slightly different shape and has holes in, for a start), I just want to achieve the general look.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Tom.

Ebairsoft should have most of the stuff you need

I guess that mount could work, I've never really looked into NVG's and mounts but it looks close enough

mounts for headset

These look like they should go together

and that's a mock ms2000 thing

 

Then you'd just need some goggles and a dummy nvg

As MM has pointed out, just go to china! all of that over here would cost an arm and a leg!

Bringing this thread back to life.

 

Currently trying to source an IBH, Mich2002 or Fast helmet from somewhere in the UK. Any variant okay as long as it has an NVG mount, velcro and rails on it...

 

Anyone got any ideas?

just out of interest, why in the UK? you'll end up paying a premium in price for maybe a week's quicker delivery time!

 

I bought my ops-core ballistic helmet from www.dragonredairsoft.com and cannot rate them highly enough!

 

As for dummy NVGs and mounts, all of the asia sites do them, though I've found that RSOV have the best selection, closely followed by airsoft-park.

UK retailers always overcharge :P

I've more or less given up buying in the UK unless I need something in a hurry.

In my opinion the best Ops core FAST Ballistic replica you can get is from Dragonred airsoft i got mine from them and i haven't had a problem with it

yep, I bought the deluxe ballistic one they do and the ONLY issue I had with it was the printing of the multicam, apart from that it's flawless, the pads are comfy, the head-loc thing works and the VAS shroud is made to a decent enough standard that I'll actually trust it to hold my NVGs.

I opted for the cheaper version because I'm an epic cheapskate, but from what I've heard as long as you don't make it work too hard they're pretty good.

Yeah from what I can tell the differences between the basic and deluxe versions are pretty minor, thinner material for the helmet and different foam for the pads and straps.
