    There is no offence in asking!
    No history to it!
    The white spot is no paint, it is car filler, and the inside is reinforced with polyester.Don't think any markings are still discoverable.
    Just had a PC crash, so it will take a while before I find the pictures of it's original condition, when I got it.
    The car filler and polyester works are very easy to undo, so no wurry's at that point.
    I'll put more pic's asap.

    I did, and thanks. Still no real closeups but it does look real from what I see, now that I know what I'm looking at. Were you the one who did the body work? Can't help but wonder why it was puttied up, just to help hold it together and to preserve it?

    Cheers,

    I am in to retorations of antiques.
    And I was looking for something to use my left overs on (glues, putties, polyesters, paints and so on). That is how I (re-)started collecting some years ago now! I baught relics of all kinds and builded them up depending on what product I was working with. It is always difficult to make the exact ammount of product one would need for a particular job, regarding color, texture and so on. And I prefered using them in a effective way, insted of waisting it.That is how a helmet ends up with different kinds of fillers.
    Now you made me say it; the job on the helmet isn't my best reference !! ;-)....
    ...as it isn't finished!
    One week in the fumes of methyl ethyl ketone and the helmet is back in it's original condition.
    A lot of the work I did can be seen in the periode I joined thise forum.
    I just had a PC crash and lost all my data, so I can't show you much at thise time....

    Thanks for the additional explanation Kris. Restoration work has a place in our hobby when done properly and with no intent to deceive. My opinion anyway.

    Yes indeed My "interpretation" of a Eastern Front camo. I left the maker mark and lot number in relic condition so there would be no doubts. Just transparent nail lacquer. Original Feldgrau Dunkel and Tan

    I agree! I think my point of vue, regarding restorations of militaria (or any other item) ,is given in one of the links.
