    We're due to Tyi...

    Anyway, mates, we apologize for not being very regular at our OWN moving thread. ironic...

    Perhaps you guys could help me.

    I was looking for an Australian Prop Maker called Altmann's Armour. I really (badly) need an Imperial Red Guard helmet. I've looked around and Don Post or Altmann's helmets are the best.
    I've read somewhere that Altmann's no longer builds licensed products, but still sells SW off the record...

    Does anybody know where I can get some help?

    Steve Altmann is a South Australian & a friend of mine.
    He has sold his business to someone interstate that, as yet, has not resumed production as he is slightly modifying the moulds..

    Your best bet would be to scour ebay looking for them... they show up from time to time & still sell for a tidy sum.

    Torchwood? lol... kidding!

    I've found a few at ebay... forbidding prices, though... I keep stumbling upon bad moulded pieces too. That's why Don Post or Altmann's are the best!

    Don Post not only lost the license a long time ago, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, but the red guard's helmet tends to turn pink with time, so Altmann's is the true bet. Problem is... THERE ARE NONE in Europe!

    Yup... just need to get to know me better... ask my fiancee. ;)


    We've just had 15 straight days of 35 degrees + weather. A new record for Australia.
    Not one that we've enjoyed setting, let me assure you..... [face_worried]

    This is it, Queensland.

    We already packed and bought the tickets South. It's up to the ship to sail away (or the mods to move us) :)

    We thank you for your hospitality! It's been great!
