Nothing amazingly kewl....just a helmet.

I like the Brennan helmet but can't see paying $20+ for another one so.......It started out with a different NVG mount and a patch of velcro on each side. I removed the mount but left the velcro in case of glue marks.

Here's stuff I've added:
strip w/velcro across the top
webbing around the helmet
retainers on the front webbing
2 pieces of velcro on the back
NVG mount and strap from an HT helmet
goggle retainers on the back

Still want to do:
remove battery from goggle strap
NVG battery pack w/wiring to mount
change out comm headset?

Here it is










Thanks for looking and let everyone know what you think.

Thanks for the comments guys. I was bored Sunday and I had been putting it off so I made myself start it. Not too bad for 1 days work.

MusashiMiyamoto, go for it bruh, let's see what you come up with.

Al, I don't show a lot of my work, I save the effort to look at your work.

Don, I'm going to stay with a Peltor, it just might get switched for a black set is all.

Thanks guys. I've since removed the goggles and I'm waiting on a battery pack (made of sculpey) to set and that will be added. I'll maybe add a diff set of goggles.

Nice, I like the elastic string holding the NODs back up in place, and the silhouette profile the curled battery box' cord gives off.
Did you glue the HT mount onto the helmet? Mine have an annoying tendency to be easily knocked off :(


That reminds me, I need to make some of those retainer loops on the back of some of my helmets.

Thanks saiko. Yep, had to glue the mount. I also had to widen the back clip to fit over the velcro. It's glued at the back, top and front. Those front mounts are a biotch.

Yea it is. But does it look ok? I can wait to get my hands on the new HT helmet, got some good reference pics for the mod on it.
