    Hello guys and friends of german Helmets

    My 1 and 1/2 years project is finished
    First to this project:
    My project was to complete a M45 helmet shell with 100% original parts like a 1944 dated liner and a shortened chinstrap
    To sweet it more I taken over my original field made Splittertarncover on it
    Finally after I bought as the last part the Ring with liner for 160€
    Today I have taken the parts together and the result was better than I hoped
    The shell have the complete original colour and the liner was in perfect condition but original
    The first pictures were from the liner and the rest were of the complete helmet
    I hope to enjoy it

    Looks nice Bavarian

    PLUS you have the added experience of how these helmets were put together.

    Thank you Andy
    It was not easy to find all that parts
    The Shell was overpainted BGS Green and bought it on ebay for 135€ as I thought it was a M42 but better
    The Chinstrap was on a size 64 1944 Linerband in a M42 Czeck refurbished shell for 70€
    The Rivets were from the M45 helmetshell
    The plates for the rivets were from my Crap package that I have bought for 50€ with rivets,Chinstrap parts and Liners
    And the liner I have bought from Potatodigger for 160€ as the last part this week
    And to the cover that I found in a underbag in my 1914 dated Julius Moys Tornister from WW1
    Were it came in I had no Idea but it looks very good on this helmet

    Best regards

    Well done, the parts all match up well, looks as though it has been together since 45! Leon.

    Hello
    Thank for the comments
    That makes me happy that this helmet you like so much
    If the war were not ending in May 1945, the M42 were not the last helmets that were developed and used
