Does this helmet look authentic?
I've been looking into the camouflaged M16 to help me when the time comes to pick one up. Maybe this one. However, I keep running into references to the directive from 1918 on how to apply the camo paint (3 colors chosen from surroundings, finger width black lines, etc) but no translation of the instructions themselves. Does anyone know where I can find the entire directive? A lot of the examples I see have the black lines terminating in sharp junctures instead of rounded like in this example. Is this normal or a standard variation?
