What well dressed women will be wearing this year.
In mid-September Ric received an e-mail asking for help. The sender needed dimensions for the Navy Mark V helmet. He wanted to make a plastic helmet which would be light enough to wear all evening. The top was made from a 14" Chinese commercial fishing buoy and the breastplate was fabricated from a sump pump basin. The weights on the weight belt are wood blocks. The top has green lights in it to give a spectral look to the costume ala Scooby Doo.

Want to give a Kawasaki a little extra class.

A. E. Burr sent us photos of his old Browne Mask and his new tattoo. He bought the mask and several back entry dresses from M&E Marine back in 1958. He says the mask is still in good shape and diveable. The artwork for the tat is the Mark V line drawing from the DESCO website. The tattoo artist has the artwork so who's next?
Chris Blackstone sent us photos of his arms sporting some creative artwork.
