    Default M35 tricolour help!

    Guys,

    Some clown has tried to restore this by using what looks like model paints and a severe lack of artistic talent.

    Any Suggestions?

    Regards

    This is tricky, as there is some of original decal left in place. The problem is any paint stripper or acetone etc would also attack the decal.

    I think I would be tempted to leave it be.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade,

    I suppose acetone is the milder of the two?
    If you have in the hand it so detracts from the helmet that maybe its worth the risk?
    It really looks like a talentless child has had a pop.

    If you really want to try, use some on a cotton wool bud so that you can place it just in the right areas. Good luck!

    I know how you feel, it really bugs me when folks have ruined otherwise good items by playing around with them.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Guys,

    I had a go and I am happy with the way it has gone. I dare not go further, I think it now looks more honest looking and I would rather have only 10% than what was on there before.

    Thanks for the tips, I used acetone and cotton buds.

    Regards

    Jock

    Unfortunately the decal is damaged too. The better way I see to removing that if you feel you need this, to use a rough dish cleaner spounge+ dish cleaner abrasive and hot water, due of noone has clean the place where new paint applied, the paint must not a hard seat on the place, if you'll try to remove it with that kind way, probably you'll have a better effect...
