    Mine also has arrived but is in the workshop gathering some 'character'. Not too much however and shortly I should be able to show it off.
    I must agree with Joe that our Muscovite couple did a stellar job - thanks, Lars & Anna!

    Cheers, Dan

    Well, here is what I did with my helmet cover.

    I decided to take a 'middle ground' approach by making a used but not abused cover and tried to simulate the wear that ( might have ) happened when the bullets, shrapnel, smoke and embers were flying - not only in "the fight for the tractor factory" but any skirmish at the time.

    So there is dirt staining, watery oil ( or oily water ) edge wear from diving for cover and bumping into rubble, and ( in either a brave or foolhardy act ) burns from red hot metal ....... cutting steel with an oxy with the helmet under it being splattered.

    I'm not showing the shell because it's a stripped M42 - original but serving the purpose of a form only - and sorry, no rubble or snow in my garden ........ struth, it IS Australia in Summer!!!!!

    Cheers, Dan

    I am unsure what holding mechanism to use ....... wire possibly but it would not have been rusty at the time and fresh wire just looks wrong - any suggestions?

    My cover arrived in the mail in Utah, but the helmet it's for is in PA still! I am having my mom ship it to me.

    I plan on actually wearing this for airsoft and reenacting, so my cover will get some real wear on it.

    Hi all,i know you have seen my handy work already but i thought i would post this update as i have replaced the nylon tie cord on my cover with a bit of very old thick rusty fence wire! I think it works a treat and looks just like something "cobbled"together in the field when your original cord had snapped!!! Lets see more covers guys!! Thanks once again to Lars and Anna! Leon.
