    It looks like that might have been a good Luftwaffe decal, actually. I don't see a tri-color. Whoever put those NRA decals on there is an idiot.

    It looks Ok but I think you paid to much.

    Maybe a bit over priced but a nice solid shell!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    What did you do with that net? I don't know exactly how an original net should look, but I have a strong feeling that yours might actually be period.

    Looks like it had a period overpaint too.
    Not a bad shell, and displays well.

    I asked the seller about the net, he said that the net is period but was added by him from somewhere, I actually display it with the net on and it's kept on by some RAF goggles.

    It had an ugly bright, fake water transfer luftwaffe decal on top of the original and a tri color on the other side-i removed those!

    Post the net seperately. If it turns out to be a good one, you got a pretty good deal I'd say. Some people will pay stupid money for those things.

    Interesting lid. Not for $150 but if you're happy with it, down there in Southern MD
