    My wife and I made these stands today. We picked all the needed materials from our local Hobby Lobby for under $10 a helmet stand. Very simple and with about 10 minutes worth of work, you have a great looking stand. I am in the process of staining these stands and adding fabric to the tops so they don't damage the helmets.

    Thanks for the positive comments guys! I really don't have a lot of room to display my helmets right now. Fixing up my basement this summer is a priority. As of right now, I have a "war room" or a "man cave" stuffed to bursting with militaria!! I don't have many helmets, but I'd like to have a way to display the ones I do.

    As far as the helmets I've posted, they are pretty cool. The camo MICH only went for $99 on Ebay (I was the only bidder). I still can't figure that one out. Most MICH helmets go off for at least $140 or higher, especially the painted ones. Supposedly came from a SEAL, but who knows.

    The contractor helmet is one of my favorites. It belonged to a fellow USMF member who picked it up in Iraq. He was transporting some contractors for some R & R in Baghdad. These contractors were the ones who pull PSD (Personal Security Detail) for high ranking officials. To make a long story short, one of the PSD guys left his helmet in the helicopter. To make it even stranger, the helicopter pilot who I got this off of had his MICH helmet stolen a few days before and made this "found" helmet his own for the duration of his time in Iraq!!!!! I traded him a brand new MICH helmet for it. I have always liked items that are used and have a little bit of history to them. I think I got the better deal on that one! Very Happy

    GR,
    I wonder how long it would be before someone noticed those marks. As to what they are.....I can certainly postulate a theory, but that information has been lost to time.

    Easy Gee,
    Thanks for the complimet. I have many more helmets in my colelction spanning from Korea to the present time period. Seems I have been picking up more helmets lately than I have in the past. I love helmets, but they can be a bear to store properly. The helmet stand project is something that would be great if you had shelving units installed in your "war room". I mainly use mine for taking pictures as of right now.

    The same idea with thousands of miles away, years ago I thought of a wooden base and a piece of broomstick, a wick at the top to avoid damaging the hull and the same end, by the way yours are very nice.

    I really need a Spanish M1. I have put off buying one for some time now, but now I have several helmet covers with nothing to do Smile

    And this is a reminder to me that Arch's helmet display stands are fantastic. Much better than the three styrofoam heads I just purchased today.
