    Welcome to the forum. Looks like you have two M42 relics.

    Why not try to find an original and complete helmet in reasonable condition? No offense, but I've never seen these as all that worthy of collecting. Others think otherwise. I imagine finding these yourself would be quite thrilling though and would be quite an adventure.

    I was thinking along the lines of possible restorations.

    In my honest opinion I don't think either one is restorable sir.

    well after a bit of wrangling with the seller I settled on this monstrosity. Found in Poland, poorly made up and sold off so I doubt there is any original paint at risk. Will strip in down and rebuilt it, I have the technology. Click image for larger version.
