Good Afternoon everyone, I wanted to share with you a special project I was working on at the end of last month.

I contacted Laird Maclean about donated a completed helmet for the online Auction that he puts together. With that said, here is what I came up with.

Currently, the helmet is on its way to Laird Maclean and should arrive soon. Hopefully with no issues.

That is so amazing Tony. And for such a wonderful cause. I really hope the charity is successful in their fundraising.

Question, where did you get the helmet inserts? Are they something you can get often?

Again, beautiful work on the helmet.

Thank you! I ordered a standard XL motorcycle liner for the helmet. This one is by HJC (Helmet liner + Cheek pads).

Thanks again my man.

I stalked this, I mean I followed this on Facebook and I'm totally impressed. I have one question what are you using for a helmet liner in the top of the helmet?

Lol, thank you ShadoKat!

BTW, my kids watch it, not me..lol. Anyways, I appreciate the comments.

Good work Tony, I love the way it all turned out.

Thanks man, hopefully it helps out the cause.

Thanks man, I appreciate that the community likes it and hopefully this will inspire more to do the same.

Truthfully I was inspired by the veterans, I remember seeing Sean Bradley's and thinking I would like to do that to one day. That's why I put the child's play logo on the same cheek as Sean's ODST. Basicly, To pay homage to that build.

Thanks again guys!
