    Default Helmet covers

    Hello Gents,

    I have come across some original WW2 Soviet "Amoeba" pattern camouflage fabric. Not a lot. I found this fabric because a forum want to make a helmet cover from this fabric for a German helmet. Officers in Stalingrad and maybe other places had helmet covers made from Soviet Amoeba camo fabric.


    My question is this. I can have a limited number of helmet covers made out of this fabric modeled from a German helmet cover. Would anybody be interested in such covers? The price will be 25 Euro + shipping.

    The Amoeba pattern was the Soviets first camo pattern, first issued in 1937-38 and looks like this.

    Here is a test sample of the covers, just to give an impression. I will make better looking ones(My wife will) She's a pro. There will be more "Amoeba" on the covers. This a left over piece of fabric.

    The helmet size here is 62 or 64. Can't tell for sure. It's a relic helmet.

    Regards, Lars

    Hello my friend

    I plan to fix it to the helmet like this. With a draw string. Maybe make a outside helmet band. At the moment i am trying to get into the "mindset" of how i would do it in the field. Maybe she will hand stitch them and add some small straps for foliage. What do you think?

    Regards, Lars

    great stuff man, I was wondering how to fix it on myself, I'm not sure the best way. How do you think that officer had it attached on the pic I sent a while ago? I was thinking with the help of wire somehow..... We shall see.]

    This guy is a real Sovietophile, with his smg and helmet cover. Probably wearing red underpants too.

    The small cross staps placed in different locations on the cover would work well I think Lars . A different line of thought If I were a soldat in the field and had just liberated this piece of cloth from a tunic possibly I would cut slots in the cloth for foliage and or take strips of the left over material and apply them to the cover through the cut slots ( helmet skrim ).
