M42 camo in classifieds

Article about: There is a M42 camo up for sale in the classifieds. Given that these are are highly faked, I thought it would be wise to vet the helmet and have some of our more experienced members opine. F

    I see no dome wear Michael and a classic 'faux' finish.

    Looks the part from a distance but like Chris, it doesn't do it for me.

    Not a good one.

    Thanks Chris.

    After getting in front of a PC with an actual monitor, I too agree and confirming my original suspicions albeit based on my much more limited experience.

    There are two other helmets for sale as well, of which one that I looked at also appears highly suspect as well.

    Hi Michael, personally I think that there is no natural wear at all, the only "effect" shown appears to be from a helmet that still had wet paint when it was "scrubbed/wiped" back. I see no real edge wear, no dome wear as mentioned and no scuff marks or damage coming through the "cammo". In fact I cannot see anything to suggest it is a period applied paint job. Leon.

    I would post that it is an obvious one looker piece of shite, but someone would moan at me to offer reasons as to why I think that, so I will refrain from commenting on it.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Dan,

    Thanks for the feedback. I agree. As noted, I started the post to hear other views. Even from a cell phone I could tell there were a number of flags, but thought I would be fair and leave it open for discussion.

    Not sure of the process from here. Don't want someone to get burned.
