  1. Don't feel bad, A buddy of mine ordered a TK. waited a year and a few months, when it finally arrived, it was a Shadow trooper kit. Needless to say, he was NOT a happy camper. Michael Tangen, I have seen the Anovos kits. Some pulls are ok, others were lets say, could be a lot better. My personal opinion, I do not like ANOVOS pulls. There are makers out there who have higher quality, thicker ABS pulls with greater detail that are far less in price. I am not going to knock ANOVOS as it is what it is. Just make sure you research as much as possible before buying. and EXPECT a LONG WAIT TIME!!!!.
  2. Thanks for sharing the flight helmet I built for a buddy. That was a real fun project.
  3. Welcome, I'm just down the road from you in Waynesville, MO. Have fun with your troops!!!!
  4. Anytime sir. You have a great day and please stop by again. Iits great to see what folks have done. https://www.facebook.com/timothy.chiasson.9#!/photo.php?fbid=10152249002383850&set=t.1172731317&type=3&theater Here is a picture of the side lights for my TK bucket. When they are turned off, you would not even know they are there. Here is the link to a picture of my modified Thermal Detenator https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152249002383850&set=t.1172731317&type=3&theater#!/photo.php?fbid=10205549539595839&set=gm.1587372628193676&type=1&theater My last charity build helmet https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152249002383850&set=t.1172731317&type=3&theater#!/photo.php?fbid=10205549539075826&set=gm.1587372628193676&type=1&theater Have a great day everyone V/R Tim
  5. Sorry folks that I have been away for just a little while. Loads of work keeping me busy and building multiple charity helmets. Yes, those are MICH pads. great to use as they can be pulled out and washed and tossed in the dryer after a troop. I have sinse updated my helmet with two internal fans, hidden lights that when turned on, I can see at night (People who are up close) and over all, made it look very clean. I will post a picture as soon as I can. along with several charity helmets so you can see the insides of them for ideas. Looking at the pictures posted here, great ideas and love those external mic speakers. Everything in my helmet is internal. My speaker system however, I kind of blew the speaker so i am using the external box for the moment. Have a great day everyone and troop away!!!!! Sorry, just saw the last question. Dan, those glasses are actually promask (Gasmask) inserts. You can have them made at any eyeglass center. or take an old set of glasses you may have, remove the side arms that wrap over your ears and insert them in the helmet. I have not had any problems using them, they do not fog up and I have them nounted with velcro tape so I can remove them if needed. I hope that helps sir. Timothy
  6. Here is where I am at today. I am excited as I finally found my tubes for the back of the helmet........Thank you Farm Store at the end of the street.
  7. Look forward to seeing your build. Have a great time and hope to see you trooping in the near future.
  8. Thank you. I figured I would make use of the glasses instead of letting them collect dust. Wearing my day to day glasses are not fun to wear under the helmet. These are so much more comfortable.
  9. Here is the padding I used. I think you are referring to Mich Padding. Hope this helps with any ideas.
  10. Sir, The hoses house all the batteries and electronics for the helmet. (Sound system and lights) I have a small fan between the hoses. Speaker system inside the hoses.
  11. After my armor build, I decided to pack a bunch of stuff into mine to make it a bit different. Very comfortable. What do you folks do with yours?
  12. Here is where I am at so far. Still have to finish up some paint work and find the tubes for the back of the helmet to run the hoses into. But over all, not to bad.
  13. The best thing for you to do (As I ran into that situation myself) Go to radio shack, by the small fan ($18-$20) by one on off switch ($2.00) one baggie of (9Volt battery hook up) $1.50 and some wire. It would be cheaper to buy that then try to rig what you currently have. I would not recommend you use that fan. As much as you may not want to hear that, it would cost you more and more time to rig what you are showing. When you have time, purchase those items and I will support you by email on how to hook it up. it only took me 10 minutes to hook up my fans to my bucket. and it works nicely.
