    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Good helmet, Jan.

    Manual "Painting steel helmets in winter white color":

    "...For painting helmets used white dry paint type "B", used for coloring artillery. This paint is well kept on the surface and well washed out. In the absence of paint type "B", applied white glue paint or white gasoline-rosin paint.

    1) Dry white paint type "B" is a dry powder, that is delivered to the troops in paper bags or barrels.

    2) White glue paint - consists of a solution of a carpenter's glue, mixed with chalk powder in the form of mashed, in a ratio of 1 part glue and 15-20 parts chalk.

    3) White rosin-gasoline paint is a mixture of rosin and chalk powder, diluted in gasoline first grade. in a ratio of 1 kilogramm of dry chalk, 1 liter of gasoline, and 60-70 grams of rosin".

    This manual released in 1941, but I am sure, that during the Finnish War used the same materials.
