    Default M40 ET64 Luftwaffe, pretty tidy condition.

    Here is a nice M40 Luft by Thale that I just got in, actually my first of the type which seems odd. Lot number 1436 but I forgot to take pics of the shell stamps.... I should also say the pics are not the best and I'll get some outdoor shots up tomorrow, but I also wanted to mess with my camera settings and some indoor backgrounds.

    Quite nice and possibly unissued condition. The liner looks unworn but has a bit of wear from storage and stacking - the drawstring has never been tied from what I can tell. Inside the liner is the name and number of the GI that picked it up 13125833, L Messick. If anyone knows of a place I can research US records to find out a bit more about this guy I would appreciate the tip. The paint still has that nice matt M40 look to it and is nicely textured, not shiny from handling and use. Decal has had a knock but I can live with it. From what I can tell ET did not make that many Luft M40's, A great many seem to be Quist produced.

    I had a bit of a cull late last year and I'm now much happier with the shape my collection is taking.

    Enjoy the pics, thanks for looking

    Not bad Andy. A good looking helmet. . Photos didn't turn out all that bad. Too bad I sold my minty strap. Would be perfect for this helmet. So what's next?

    Thanks guys, it fills the gap I had for this type nicely. I think I'll aim for that police we were talking about Todd, but I never really think on what I'll get next. You know what it's like - you look for a double decal Heer and you find an SD KM

    I agree, a police helmet would be a good choice for the best acquisition. But you know how it goes. While you are looking for one, a different one just as good comes along and poof, your money is gone!

    Hi Andy can you post a decal closeup? All looks well and good. Your next helmet should be a DD SS.

    LOL! Why does that not surprise me. All the good ones will be gone by the time Andy and I each save enough.
