    Default On the way to the max show...

    As I was headed to the max show I stopped at an antique store along the way and picked up a few things, sadly spending the last of my free money...

    A late WWII shell w/ repaint? and an early westinghouse liner.

    I also got a minty late WWII / korean helmet liner with EM insignia (for parade I think) and a leather strap but I gave it to my friend... so I have no pictures of it.

    An AAF tunic with all the pins shown that were on it (I removed them because they dont belong?), I think the wings are original but unmarked and the marksman badge with rifle qualifications is WWII sterling. The other marksman badge is post and the CIB I have no clue?

    Thanks and yeah the helmet had an 80s camo cover on it and I almost passed it, but my curiosity made me turn it over and I instantly bought it the lady originally was selling the jacket alone for 35$ and I was skeptical since I do not know much about the wings. When she said she would throw in the "modern surplus helmets" she had I could not pass... lol
    What are your thoughts on the paint?

    update - And thanks Steve for the insight on the wings I know they are heavily faked and there are a lot of post war sets out there.
