    Hi Guys,

    bought another "new" M40 for my collection today. I have little experience with field repaints.
    But this one looks repainted. The decal also took a bit of a paint job.
    All in all the leather is in fair condition and I liked it. Wonder if you guys like it also.
    i have a 21 day return posibility, but IMO that wont be neccesary.

    Hmmm. I have trouble uploading more pics... I keep trying

    Thanks!!

    Hi Willem, don't you feel disappointed when your post doesn't get a reply?

    We'd love to see the rest of the helmet to guage an overall feel and opinion but my first concern is that the decal is placed way too high - it should be much lower than where it is ( I forget the actual amount )

    Hi Willem, Can't really comment much until we can see the whole thing from different angles and inside too. It looks interesting!

    The decal is rather high.....maybe a careless soldat applying his own private purchase decal, or maybe his superior told him to repaint his helmet after seeing the badly applied decal
