    Default Awesome M35 ET64 Luft Camo

    It has finally arrived. My new beauty.

    M35 ET64 German Luftwaffe Camo, Lot # 3378.

    Two dome stamps (BA? acceptance stamps). First says 4./Flea 34 I think. The second is "FL HorstKomp Handorf" If anyone knows anything about this unit (?) would be greatly appreciated....

    Named to Uffz Müller (Unteroffizier/Corporal).

    Tri-color spray Normandy camo. Pictures make it much brighter in color but it is a more earthy brown. While heavily on the earth color, there are traces of green and red.

    Great ghosting of Luftwaffe and National decal can be seen below the camo.

    Early single ply aluminum liner band manufacturer and date stamped B&C Berlin 1937. Goat skin leather liner is still soft (the guy liked to grease his hair). Original knot in place.

    Chin Strap manufacturer and 1939 date visible on tip. Still deciphering the maker.

    I hope you enjoy this as much as I am.

    (note: Pictures were not mine but the sellers)

    Regards,

    Michael

    Thanks Rossi,

    I'm really loving this lid. It is awesome in person.

    The liner is as soft as a babies bottom. Could have been treated or as noted the guy liked his hair gel.

    Just need to find out the maker of the chin strap and some of the dome stamps.

    Thanks Matt. Got it today in the evening after a few days camping in the rain. Can't wait to see it in daylight. Bought on consignment. Maybe he is a member here and I can find out if it has a history....

    Thanks for the rep!!

    Well done Michael, a top end cammo in my book. Maybe I will be fortunate enough to own one like this one day. Leon.

    Can you post pictures of the exterior dome and closeups of the rivets and vents as well as any "curved" scratches? What is the provenance on this one Michael?

    Looks like the one that was on Ken B's website. Also looks to be his pictures.
