Anyone have any more info about this. I assume from the recent hose thread that this is in the offing.

The way it sounded to me was that the hose info was for his own helmet, not a run.

If you're looking for something that is current and available, Dan Laws has a TIE Pilot based on a T*E faceplate.

Hope this helps.

And with special permission from T*E, so it's not an unauthorized copy.

And some of the helmets!

I bought a TIE helmet and Armour from TE a few years back and Dan supplied it. I think its a kind of team effort.

If Gino's making a TIE helmet then I'm sure he'll make a few "spares" which would probably go on sale.

Until then IMO the SDS is the most accurate. Shame about the mohawk

Cheers

Actually I dont think that everything AA makes is the most accurate, but I think his TIE is. Having had an original TIE in my posession for a long period of time taught me much about the original helmets.

Even with the inaccurate mohawk I still think the SDS is the most accurate TIE I have seen. The problem with your/the Laws helmet (of which I have 2) is that IMO its face reflects the idiosyncracies of the HDPE helmet it derived from and is therefore too "thin" - more Stunt than Hero, which in my view the original TIE's display.

Because of this your/the Laws helmet does not look quite right to me. However you're welcome to your own opinions.

Cheers

Jez

You have the old version.. Understandable. The new one is dead on.

I spent two weeks with the TIE helmet too an the AA is way off. But again, you can have your opinion as well. The angle f the nose ridge is too far off on AA's helmet to be accurate.
