    Do you think someone put winter camo on it during the war as the second layer?
    nah its a complete relic that had a coat of grey paint then mixtures of filler & several coats of different colour paint on top of that just a total mess that needs allot more work to remove it all i haven't even started the inside yet

    thanks mate Ive come to really enjoy doing things like this, i just don't understand the mentality of people that take a perfectly good helmet & ruin it by doing a poor restore job on it

    Hi Nick,
    that took some work getting that crap off i bet, It looks good stripped, i think you have a nice helmet there. It will make a nice addition to your collection. Let us see them when they are all finished.

    hiya Dave
    it was very hard work especially getting that grey paint off although some still remains that i couldn't budge but its not yet finished as the inside still has allot of work to be done to it & the liner ring & split pins need to be cleaned up & reattached
