Donk - been watching this one from the sidelines a fantastic end result you must be pleased it truly looks to be a labour of love. Of course a good excuse to visit BIM again this year.

Well done great effort.

"never to be seen again"

When a collector passes away items will turn up again so "never" is a bold statement  ajb007/wink

(same with the word "rare" , very few items on ebay are actually rare)

That being said Im not into collection only cuz of value , have stuff that is rare but almost no value , its just joy from the items themselves

Re: A Rare 1967 survivor has surfaced! ....Prop Update!

Update: The helmet will be exhibited alongside Little Nellie (or at least her studio stand in) at Bond In Motion in Covent Garden, London next week. I will give a precise date when I know myself.
