I'm not really a fiberglass fan, but this seems to be a really nice job (don't jump all over me, I'm no craftsman!)

Don't think so. This one's definitely a Stunt; the MR is (more or less) a Hero type helmet.

looking at his feedback he seems to have quite a factory going - especially the E-11's (which i'm guessing are also MR recasts).

Not sure about the origins of the trooper helmet, but presume its a TE or derivative. Whateverit is he's done a goodgob ASSUMING the pics posted are of the actual helmet and not the best one he made.

Given the amount of stuff he's made and the quality (and location, Yorkshire) he must be one of the "known" people here in the UK, I'm sure someone in the UKG will know him

Cheers

I bought a blaster off him a couple of years ago and a neckseal the blaster was put together well enough but i had to repaint it he hadn't even primed the pvc barrell and the paint just fell off with the slightest knock

He was selling these scout helmets frequently a while ago too which i believe are KS kits or recasts of

The upper lip seems rather "fat".

yep I noticed the depth on the lip, too...

At first glance, it looks like a cast off an SDS Stunt.

I'm not studied up on SDS products. Does the SDS stunt have this fat lip feature?
