    Thanks, I will look it up, I doubt we have it in Denmark ! But I guess it's a kind of chemical paint remover .

    Nice helmet. I did the same to an M35. after I removed the paint a re-enactor had applied - and then the post-war top coat, it revealed a good portion of apple green with remnants of double decals - the left one being red.
