Thank you guys for welcoming myself and now Rob. I dont personally know Simon but I do Rob and have for several years now and he is a very skilled craftsman. I am very glad he is now here to speak for himself beacuse I can step in all day but info straight from the horses mouth is what you are after. I can say this I do know some info and it's very cool what's coming. I have the highest confidence things will turn out great.

I think this site is going to be an alright place to be.

Don't worry guys the suit has been handled by Rob and Myself with kid gloves!

The helmet hasn't been destroyed it is very much in tack. We've gone through several different molding techniques, it has taken quiet a while but that's down myself and Rob want to produce best helmet available.
Our first prototype was a great success the detailing that has been capture from the original exceptional and we'll have copies available very soon.

The Armour is also going well and we're hoping to have that available shortly after the launch of the helmet.

I'll also post some pictures we had taken recently!

Just above the reply box there is a button with a image and a small floppy disk on it. Click on that one to upload a photo. Or use an alternative hosting service, and copy the url to the reply box and put [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] around the image url. Clicking the other image button without the floppy disk on it is equal to the [img]-tags.

Can i remind everyone that this section is only open and viewable to registered members only, so anything posted here that you dont want the whole world to see is relatively private.

And anyone found posting images elsewhere without permission from the original poster will have their account deleted.

And many thanks to Simon for sharing with us here first at L.S.D

Im sure there are lots of questions to ask Simon and the team about the suit and its history ?

Heres mine,its seems that the helmet has two shades of green one for the face plate and one for the cap and back.Is this a trick of the light or are there two colours of green ? This leads me to believe that they are infact two different types of plastic (maybe) ?

OK one more for luck, Looking at the full suit picture it seems that the shins are layed out on the wrong legs. Is there at the top of the left shin as we look at the picture the remainders of the sniper knee plate ?

Thank you once again for taking time out to show these detail pictures.

I see the thigh cover stripes have been riveted on, with the right thigh there is 1 rivet at the top and the left has 4 in total with 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom.. is this an original feature from filming or something you have done?

They are amazing pics, thanks for sharing guys.

Is it my imagination or is that a handplate under the thigh?
