German helmet from Stalingrad

Article about: I've gotta try to get some of that stuff. It's amazing how it doesn't destroy the paint or decals.

    Yes, no point having them rusting away in the ground!

    Hi everyone
    I want to share my experiences in the use of oxalic acid (Thanks for the advice my friend from Spain).
    I convinced my friend to do a little clean up a German helmet. We used a light solution of oxalic acid.
    I think I was able to improve the brightness of the decals and colors. Very well washed leather liner. You can see the ink inscriptions ex owners. Autograph owners of 4 pieces.

    HERE Photos the wet helmets before cleaning

    The difference is small, but Dean and liner more clean, I think so...

    You can see the sharp contrast of fragments of paint and corrosion (rust). But after a wipe with natural wax or engine oil, it will be an excellent result.

    I think this work is not bad for this German helmet

    I certainly would not put engine oil anywhere near this helmet, it has a habit of ruining old items like this

    The one thing thats bugging me is the liner, did you remove it or disassemble it , the seam should be at the back, if its easy enough try to relocate the leather but only if its not to far gone
