    Always check first that the paint you are stripping isn't period , an untouched wartime helmet is worth so much more than a stripped helmet with a decal , you can always tell.
    Depending on the manufacture year of your M42 it's possible it didn't receive a decal.

    thanks for replying to my original question....I figured as much...even if i did see an outline of a decal my fear would be messing with paint that could have been period. Its a strange color but what concerns me is its a little "glossy" for war time paint
