    good morning fellow bundeswehr collectors ,ive a question relating to this referance photo ,i dont know wether the picture has been altered in any way but my eyes can see two tone paintwork on these helmets ,im just wondering if this is correct as ive only ever seen them in olive drab ,these helmets show od and maybe a purple colour applied does any body know if paint scheme's were used in the bw or was it more reliant on netting and scrims ,thanks james Click image for larger version.

    Haven't a clue on this 1 James. At first I thought it was some sort of cover under the net but then I put my reader's on & it doesn't look to be a cover..& with the photo being a tad grainy it is hard to workout...Sorry not much help ! but maybe somebody may know? Cheers Terry.

    It appears to be a colour error when this photograph was developed. You can see the same type of splotches in the dark part of the trees in the top left of the image.
