    Default Decals Look OK?

    How do these decals look? I think they are OK, but want to run it by you all. The Heer is on an M18, the Lufty is on an M40 and the third/fourth Heer (?) is on an M40, but the shell looks to have been painted black. I don't know if that is wartime or post war paint. Thanks for any help.

    It would be better if you showed all the helmets in order to get some relation to the decals displayed

    They look pretty good to me... I'd go for the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine (looks far too gold to be Heer) any time. The first Heer would fool me if fake, but I like that one as well. Thumbs up.

    IF it turns out to be an original field paint black KM lid, there is a good chance of it being a KM coastal artillery lid, me thinks The only two other black KM lids I have seen are both coastal artillery lids. And as far as I know, black field painted KM lids are pretty rare.

    I think the first decal is an Ed Strache, which is normally on reissues. The helmet looks to be a factory textured M40/42 though. Please correct me if I'm wrong

    Edit: Ah, I just saw your first post....... On an M18 I'm more comfortable with that decal

    Here are the helmets. I completely forgot to take a pic of the black one, but I have seen it in hand. That decal looks like a two part when I inspected it in hand. I feel pretty comfortable with all of these. What does a coastal KM black helmet go for, ballpark figure? The paint isnt stellar, but most of it is present.

    The first is called the Mad faced decal and is somewhat controversial like the Ed Strache decal , it's been a long time since I have seen that one.
    The Luftwaffe is good. The Black one although very toned looks Heer to me , the toning on the right wing seems uneven. A KM must be evenly gold. But it could be the pics.
