Hi there just joined the site and need a little help. I have got what I think is an M1916/17 helmet. Unfortunately it has been painted black as you can hopefully see from the attached pictures. I would like to restore it, but not having done this before I am not entirely sure how. Firstly I need to take the black, I think enamel, paint off. What is the best thing to do that with? It has a crack that I want to fill again how best should I do that. I then need to paint it and I need some help here too.
All suggestions greatly appreciated.
