    I am hoping that someone here can tell me who made this repro helmet.
    I was told about 50 were made around 2000/2001 for a D-Day/Normandy event. I was told this is not a cheap-o but a quality repro in the same line as a Werke,( I think that is right), helmet.
    I would like to hear your opinion as to the quality of this repro and anything I can do to make it better. I have no interest in "ageing" it, just to make it as authentic as possible. Many thanks Gentlemen/Ladies, Paul.

    Oh Man! Really??? I thought this was a little better made than that. The shell is pretty heavy/ strong. I can not flex it pushing between my two hands. I know the chin strap/harness looks bad, but I thought the liner looked pretty good.
    Should I try and up grade it or is it just a cheap-o repro?

    Could be made in India.

    Either way, both countries have given us excellent takeaway food.
