Heer M42 helmet project

Article about: In Ken N.'s book he shows his ET74 helmet that has been welded back together. Perhaps this was a wartime modification? Either way, good luck on the restoration! Can you read the factory stam

    Checked out ya 35, "KOOL" it's a toss up what to do with that one? it has its own appeal as is! but i reckon she'd come up Trumps with some elbow grease, a bit pricey for me at the moment but i'll keep it in mind.

    Cheers, Phill

    Hey, Phill ! Thought I'd drop by and see how the helmet is shaping up. Looks good
    in primer - you'd never know it ever had a crack !

    Guess you've been looking at a bunch of lids to see what kind of finish to go with.
    Even without a lot of texture, whatever you do will still look good because
    the surface is smooth and even now. I've seen some restored helmets
    on-line, and I'm amazed at what can be done.


    Keep going with more 'in progress'.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Hey Wolf, not a great deal of progress, I've touched it up with a bit of spot putty and just letting her harden up a bit B4 sanding again, as you can see i'm leaving the interior "as Is" so to speak so it gives it a bit of credence.
    Cheers,Phill
