    Default M40 "nd"

    Hi, new helmet to collection. This is supposed to be a period scratched Heer helmet but the previous owner applied a new decal on it. Any tips on how to get rid of it would be great! Have tried with a warm-moisty wettex.

    Nice dome stamp, inside and outside in quite good condition. Repro chinstrap and drawstring..

    The helmet was given to a boy in Norway by an old lady years ago, I recently bought it. It comes from Lillehammar and were possibly issued there.

    Et64, Lotnr:400

    Thanks Al

    Thanks for the kind words Glenn! Do you have any idea of how to get rid of that decal in a smooth way? It's hard as stone..

    I would suggest checking out the "Restoration and Refurbishing" section of the Forum...you might get lucky there...But surely someone will come along to give you the proper pointers...

    Hi , nice M40 , have you tried to steam it off? If it's water based that may well work. Leon.

    Hi Leon, do you think that's better than a warm wettex dishcloth? I can try it but should I seal the air-vent with some paper just to prevent steam from hurting the liner?

    Regards Al

    That's a good idea!! Stick a bit of blue tack in there just in case some steam goes through the vent. Leon.

    Ok, so I've tried steaming it off and it's still hard as stone! Is there any more ways to do it?

    I would say it seems like you are stuck with this decal unfortunately. I would not want to use chemicals on it in case it damaged the paintwork. Leon.

    It might sound mad but try using a pencil eraser, rubbing and twisting firmly. It might grip the fragile decal and rip it. It should be easy to pick remnants off with a pin or credit card etc.
