Tf2: Lucky Shot by AngusMcLeod Tf2: Lucky Shot by AngusMcLeod
Another creation by my talented father: The Lucky Shot! [link]

The metal was awfully hard to cut (what would you expect from an army helmet) but it went without any problem. Other than dad drilled a hole in his thumb, but he says it didn't hurt.

The mortar round is made of solid wood and is screwed to the helmet liner underneath the actual shell. Some extra padding is preventing any damage the screw could possibly deal to my skull.

I've got an entire BLU Soldier cosplay ready, but I simply cannot find the time for a photoshoot, so it's coming whenever.

This is probably one of the best soldier helmets I have ever seen and I don't just say that.

I believe it is time for you and your pops to open a site on Ebay for these.

I'll take 8

Yes, I recognize your name from the workshop! I was thinking about contacting you. Glad you got to see it! I'll make sure to let dad know about your comment.

Have you ever considered doing a full Soldier costume with your dad?

Seems to me like you would have the best Soldier cosplay ever if that happened :)

As mentionned in the description, I already have a complete BLU Soldier costume.

I simply don't have the time or a quality camera to pull a quality photoshoot.

It tends to shift. I didn't wear it for long, but I predict it's going to be tiring to wear it!

Is this a M1 helmet replica?

It is an original Canadian M1 helmet from the 80's that has been painted.
