Not many ESB TK helmets on E-Bay, but I'm having trouble identifying it.

Any ideas?

E-BAY AUCTION

Total Rip off.

Look at the super soft details, It must be a re-cast of a Meatstock helmet IMO.

The ear caps have the shape of a TE mkI which is the source of the Meatstock helmet.

The traps, tear drops are so soft the details almost look like they were painted on a flat surface, lol.

Well, from what I know, seller is a major re-caster... so whatever he's selling, it had to be someone else's product.

TE pretty much said that they were casts off his helmets.

Afaik: yes.

Also, the fiberglassing job is sub-standard, very thin in places... or so I've been told...

I disagree, the original ESB helmets had grey decals.

Under certain studio lightnings they appeared blue or even purple, but that was just a trick of the light.
As grey is a very neutral colour, it is highly prone to colour shifts due to lighting and photographic conditions.
