    5 hours bath in oxalic acid ( HOOCCOOH) kills the rust, and now you can see the remains of skull and decal are now much more clear visible

    Hi,
    You have done a good job bringing those decals out, and the helmet look s far better than it did. It is a pitty that a piece has dropped from where the hole is, did you keep this piece ? you could have put it back in just for the display. We had one of this
    type of unit on the forum before only the decals were much more pronounced, but i like this one.
