    Hello guys
    I thought I would show my second helmet. Is this a M1940? Also does anyone know what kind of chin strap it needs?
    Thank you for the help.

    Hiya,

    Decent lid. Its an M42 model, which is Made by ckl and is a size 64. Looks like a Luftwaffe issue as well. Liner looks dry and worn but defiantly original. As for the chinstrap you have the remains of the original on there so I would leave it be. If you do want to change a nice mid to late war version would look good on it, though they can be pricey.

    Cheers
    Jason

    Leave the entire helmet the way it is. It's how it always has been.

    Nice Luftwaffe M42 Jay
    As per your original question as to it being an M40 only the M42 has the unfinished rough flared out Rim I do believe this was done as a cost cutting measure the M-35 and M-40's rims are rolled in here is a couple of photo of my old M4O Luftwaffe for comparison.
