    I did the rim and put another coat of primer on, hard to tell from the pictures I took but the rim is pretty smooth! Click image for larger version.

    That's a hell of a difference from the first set of pictures!
    You couldn't tell they are the same helmet.
    Very impressed indeed.

    I am looking forward to seeing how you paint it and adding the white camo.
    Will you have it so the decal is clearly visable, or paint over it with the white?
    I am still waiting on the paint I ordered to arrive so I can continue with the M40 I am half way through.

    I'm going to paint around the decal and what color are you painting yours?

    Luftwaffe blue grey, I have everything except the paint.
    I tried a spray can, but didn't like the finish.
    The slightest touch would leave a mark.
    The other one I did was a field grey in a spray can and that was fine.
    This paint I am waiting for is enamel based so I will see how I get on with that.
    What paint are you using?
