    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    So I'm looking to buy a helmet, and have heavily researched these 3 awesome dudes!

    Each of them appear to make amazing Thomas helmets, but I wanted to know any first hand experience in terms of quality and overall accuracy you guys may have. I haven't decided if I'm going with electronics or not, probably not for now, but I am so excited!

    I can't comment on the other guys, but im sure their work is great.

    however. i will suggest to you to go with a FIREWIRE cast. i just finished mine a couple weeks back. and heres how it turned out..



    his cast is, in my opinion, the closest you'll get to the real size.

    anyway, hope that helps

    Firewire. It seems perfect for your height and build.

    I agree, Firewire is the best. I'm 5'9, 155lbs and it fits me perfectly. I've included a few shots from before I got much work done, but you get the idea.

    All three make pretty awesome helmets. But everyone's saying FireWire so that should be your answer, his work looks very clean. And from what I've heard, he's a really nice guy.

    Hope it doesn't look like I'm hi-jacking..., but how's your Thomas build going, Teese?
