    Good lord, those Luxors won't be cheap and certainly not in that condition, and as for the rest of it, well all up, off to the bank manager to remortgage the house!

    That's real Phoney War, Battle of France, the balloon's just gone up sort of stuff, absolutely beautiful but with a price tag to boot.

    I do work for the aviation museum here which is the national aviation museum and has a large amount of RAF flying kit, we even have genuine combat veteran WWI Triplex goggles, but Luxors in mint condition? I think not. Those are nearly up there with unicorn fertiliser Andrew :cool:

    Here is my G-mask as worn at Duxford for a photo shoot with a DAF Harvard last summer.

    Those are lovely too Andrew, but those first ones of yours with the more uncommon tan cushions are remarkable in that condition and rarer.

    Luxors (as you no doubt know) were thought by many "old hands" as the best goggles one could get their paws on.

    Great photos Andrew and keep them coming!

    Yes the Luxor 12s are the bees knees for sure. It is amazing what you can find going cheaply on the net!
