As far as I'm aware XRF analysis started requiring a data base of helmet examples, it never studied period paint products or even named companies that supplied the German army. Is that correct? I don't know about you but I wasn't going to pay someone to build up data so in effect they could sell it.
Would be nice imo if we had something primarily about paint, separate from helmets if you like. Oh the old Q-tip water solvent thing well whats wrong with it? The blog only reiterates what I was told I'd forgotten about it. In the other thread I said at anyone time the max was 4 once 3 were SS I don't know why that should matter.
I'm 61 had a fascination with German stahlhelme since 9 or 10yrs back in the day I liked Luftwaffe maybe because I'd just seen The Great Escape at the pictures lol!
Maybe it would be an idea to have a pinned thread just on medic helmets those who own them could explain in detail I've also noticed nobody talks of other countries that used German helmets, they must of had army/civic medics even postwar.
