    I've owned a few and this just looks bad. The shell doesn't even look WWII. Decals look like they were applied without trimming and the paint is an odd color. It looks like it was aged and poorly so. You can see how someone ran sandpaper over the paint and the decal. Others - please correct me if I am wrong. NH

    Has the shell been cut or is it a newish aged repro?

    Also you would think a Fallschirmjäger Helmet would have a matte finish. Shiny things on helmets or not advisable! lol

    Heinous. When I was 7 years old and making models I trimmed and applied decals better than this thing. No need to consult anyone else on this disaster! Caveat emptor! NH
