    Interesting, have you ever try to put in to oven? (I'm serious)
    I think the idea was to achieve an aged helmet with the accessories still in place, if you put a helmet in an oven you have to take the liner out or the leather will shrink also the cover will most probably char, the only time you can put one in the oven is after a repaint to set the paint and even then the temperature has to be just right or bubbling occurs

    Just leave it outside in the garden for 6 months and if it's very dry where you are you'll get a DAK effect, or if you prefer a European effect, water it on a regular basis.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Ok update....thawed out quite nicely... Damage to leather quite nice.....have put in back in th freezer on its own till tommorow, thn will let it dry out completely...

    I am hoping that as the hlmet cover dries out it may shrink an possibly tear around the sems a bit.......

    I though aboutsn oven on low heat for a bi but wrapped in aluminium foil...

    I would advise against putting it in the oven, from personal experience.
