    Default Datrus-Special "Stalingrad" Helmet Cover!

    This amazing helmet cover just arrived from my friend Lars in Moscow.

    As many of you have seen in the thread he made on these, he found Soviet "Amoeba Camouflage Fabric" and he and his lovely wife hand-made these using authentic WM feldgrau thread, too!

    Amazing quality and craftsmanship!

    Overall, I am quite pleased with this helmet cover... it really is superb.

    The best part is that it brought the helmet that was damaged at our recycling facility back to life!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH, LARS!

    Looks good Joe Something strange with the surface of the helmet? Looks a bit uneven. I can see you can crimp it a bit for better fit if you are up to it

    Very nice to see the covers in action

    Regards, Lars

    You're right, Lars... there IS something strange with the surface of the helmet...

    But yes, I will work on fitting things a little better... I just was so excited and wanted to snap photos quickly.

    I remember when you got that helmet, is that an SS decal or a scrubbed off police decal?

    I only just noticed the side it is on, are reissue beaded lids common Doug? SD role maybe?

    Hi Doug,

    The person who helped me take the black biker paint off of the helmet insisted it was an SS decal. I posted it here for review, but we were never able to determine what it really is.
