    Default M35 - paint

    Hi All

    what do you think about this M35 ? The paint looks suspecious to me - but I am still not able to see whether it is a fake or a real one.,

    Nice size - Better than the other one - it's definitely been repainted once
    or twice. Again don't spend much $$$. I'm guessing this would be
    selling for about $350-$400+, but it's a tad much IMO.........

    I also like it But there are so many copies on the market that I as a beginner need to take care. Right now there is a German Company that Sells quite a lot Shells for fair prices as originals. I also know that they sell copies which make it a lot more confusing. Will try to post Pictures of them later

    A solid original relic or semi-relic shell should cost about
    the same as a repro - $80-$125. Add an original liner,
    with rivets and the price can triple.

    Some advise to skip the 'beat up' lids and buy a good
    original 'no decal' at around $350-$500. Some of us
    are also on tight budgets.........

    I am also moving in that direction my first helmet was a repro, and I liked i untill I bought my first real helmet and discovered how different it was in design and quality. Now I can feel that I am moving away from the original - but beat up - helmets towards original and still intact helmets.

    There are correct paints, but the heck if I could tell you where to get them. I know Ken N has then for the restored helmets he does. Maybe shoot him an email? Someone else here might know a better place.
