    Default Decals for Russian helmet

    I have a Russian helmet I picked up at the Jockey Lot this weekend. (not ww2) But I want fix it up to look sorta ok. I would like to know where to get a Russian star (decal)or whatever would be appropriate.It's just plain green with no decals.It has a black stamp (ink)of two crossed swords along side of the #53 in the front and a #88 stamped in the steel at the back. Any ideas on what when and where? The decal is what I'm hoping for. Ron

    Hello Ron,

    Please show us the helmet, it's liner and it's markings.

    As far as I know, the Red Army was not the type to use decals of any sort on anything...

    Hi Ron, sounds like you actually have a Czech M53.

    Decals were not used. All the hand painted usually via a stencil. I do actually know of a guy in the USA who does make fake decals though.

    Cheers, Ade.
