    Default british turtle mkIV

    here's my latest pickup ,this turtle has the mk5 liner but is unfortunately missing the nylon sock and elasticated chinstrap also one section of the fibre frame is missing im hoping spare parts might become available in the future to complete it ,ive looked really hard for the maker stamp but cant find it ,the insides have had a good thick textured paint applied more apparent than on the outside shell which seems unusual ,it came with this net and scrim cover so im showing it as it was found ,ive heard all sort of manner of cammo was used to disguise the outline but i would be interested to hear your thoughts on the authenticity of this two tone scrim ,ive always been led to believe such scrim was never applied to them ,also i show my other favorite hessian/scrimmed turtle of which i am in no doubt of its authenticity ,i welcome your comments Click image for larger version.

    Love the net and scrim James I see these come up for sale here at the flea markets on occasion quite cheap I will keep my eyes open for some spare parts for you.
    And James I also have a Mk IV with the two tone vehicle type scrim under the camo net.

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Hello James , I have not seen one those scrim turtles for quite a while. I think it will not be long before they rocket up in price! Thanks for showing, Leon.

    The only thing that springs to mind James is Intelligence Section, but why would you write that where it cannot be seen? Leon.

    a small update ,mark your example inspired me to try a similar look ,i simply just flipped the netting over and hey presto ,the outline of the shell is now much more noticeableClick image for larger version.

    A slightly more subdued look to the camo now but still quite effective in my opinion .

    Top notch James.
