    If, by playing around with Photoshop, John brandon has increased the contrast of the pictures then slight differences between the composition of the decal and that of its background paint could have been significantly enhanced. Any slightly warm areas on the decal's periphery - bits of rust for example - would become increasingly red. There of course comes a point when reality is distorted and even bent beyond belief with image manipulation - like the current picture of would be British Prime Minister David Cameron on those billboards.

    Could the decal have been coloured in with pen (de-nazified) and then cleaned up?

    i had money for a german helmet burning a hole in my pocket and this came up and i grabbed it as all the others i see are a bit more highly priced and have been offered a lot of dodgy ones also this seemed genuine to me but im no expert on german things i collect raf really but fancied one im a bit hooked now as it started as a couple of relis shells and i have a few shells this is the first complete one.
