    I know the field divisions certainly wore grey/blue (field blue) uniforms in the early days so i would imagine they wore matching helmets!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Easier to repaint helmets than do anything in a hurry about the unsuitable clothing though, especially as the lid is generally the thing you see first-you often see improvised camo/toning down on German helmets used in the field as the war wears on.

    Real fieldgrey helmets with Lw eagle are very scare . Take care as often blue grey helmets when getting old look green (blue + yellow tone from the ageing = green)

    A deep blue double decal on the M35's, more of a grey-blue single decal with the M40 regs, and at the end of the war everyone has the same grey no decal lid. Occasionally you find a luftwaffe grey-blue M40 with no decal but not often, and only certain manufacturers.

    Flak troops sometimes painted their helmets black.

    I have this lufty shell ( see the faint eagle ) that has a strange green to it - I am unsure whether this was a field division over-paint or a colour shift that francis006 was referring to ........

    I'd say that was an overpaint Dan.

    They seem to vary from almost black to blue but I have one Q that is almost green. These are all Luftwaffe and I think it should be easy to spot the Q I'm referring to.
