    Ronnie, Looking forward to your effort. I agree the painted on decal is reminiscent of Italian colors. The Swastika you will note is much too thin to be regulation style. It looks to me like a goofy post war effort as well. I have seen helmets repainted in all kinds of hideous ways. The latest offense I saw at an antique store was a perfectly good late war Luftwaffe M42 with two backwards Swastikas drawn on it with magic marker! Who would do something so stupid? Take care with your effort - can't wait to see the results! NH
