    Can you make straight up pictures of the decal?, at first look it's looks to me like a Luftwaffe grey color

    Hello,
    I don't know if this is the light, the flash or something else, but Dimas is right...nothing in common with the early apple green paint...looks very dark..better pics should help...

    I agree better pictures would be a great help, also I have to agree the color looks strange for a M35 DD army helmet. Not to keen on the decals

    I'm not sure we're seeing the same helmet as you

    I do agree the helmet colour is "off" the norm. But I have had them where there has been an over paint with that colour, but that usually means the decals too?
    Unless someone has removed the re paint at some time? however........The tri colour does not give me a warm fuzzy feeling and the eagle? better pictures for sure Only IMHO
