Maverick's Flight Helmet

A slight deviation from the Star Wars / Sci-fi theme but I childishly enjoy the movie "Top Gun".  I want a copy of Maverick's helmet kitted out with PC electronics so that I can use it when I'm being a sim-jock and nobody's watching.  Here are the reference images I've collected.

mav1.jpg (18049 bytes)Maverick in his cockpit wearing his oxygen mask.

mav2.jpg (8720 bytes)Oxygen mask loose.

mav3.jpg (26022 bytes)This picture clearly shows that, unlike the replicas I have seen, the mask receivers are painted not chrome, the screws holding the visor cover are chrome not black, and that the helmet paint scheme is tape over a base blue (note the visible damage to the tape under the 'K'.

mav_replica1.jpg (14593 bytes)Art-work on a Maverick copy by flightsuits.com.  Chrome receivers and black visor screws are inaccurate.  Cost; $500 helmet + $240 paint job.
