    Hi guys,

    I am considering buying this stuff mostly to get the liner from the german helmet which I can use on another helmet I got. What do you think about the liner. Does it look okay?

    From the pictures supplied it looks ok, but i would seriously reconsider taking this one out for another, the colour isnt very clear on the helmet, but i see a dark blue effect on my lap top, possibly Luftwaffe?, what helmet are you thinking of putting this liner in, to me its seated well and belongs where it is, plus you run the risk of breaking pins

    I'm seeing a bluish green Dave.

    Liner looks good to me, but I wouldn't butcher an other helmet to get a liner. Consider buying a liner separately, since no matter what you do the liner won't be original to the helmet, but at least that way you don't take apart an other helmet. As Dave said, the pins can be tricky bastards too.

    Agreed. The splotchy greenish camo overpaint needs to come off, but under that is original Luft blue. And it is named by the look of things. I would try and find another liner

    Yeh I wouldn't be mucking with that helmet, you can find original liners.......and as stated, once the pins are out,and you don't break them, you will never get them to sit flush on another shell

    It was actually for another luftwaffe helmet. Thanks for letting me know about the difficulty with replacement of the liner from another helmet. These parts in the pictures is an auction in denmark I am looking at and my original plan was just to take the liner out and then sell all the other stuff. Including the helmet because of the ugly green collar that have been put on it. Now I probably will let it go and try to find a separately liner.

    If I should decide to bid on the auction and in case I win how do you think the best way is to remove that post war green paint?

    First off you need really good pictures, close ups of the paint to make sure its a post war addition, you could be taking original camo paint off , thats the last thing you should do, also once you start to take paint off you WILL affect the underlying coat in some way so its more than important to confirm either way

    More pics of the M40 would definitely be a plus, markings in the shell etc. I noticed the same greenish camo on the other non German helmet in the pic so I think they are both post war.

    The other helmet looks like a Dutch Model 27 or Romanian Model 35. So the paint MIGHT be WWII vintage on both.
