    Hi Phill, if you are talking early Luftwaffe Blue, then No.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hey Phill,

    From 1940- on most helmets were painted with textured M40 spec paint. The texture used was aluminum oxide.

    Here is an M42:

    M40's tend to look more grey than blue but they are all textured.
    This EF comes close to LW blue.
