    Hmm that is a fair point about customs though. The chances of it being inspected at some point is high, and muggles don't understand us...... I'll avoid the swas on the final version

    Maybe you could have a laminated card that travels with the helmet and serves as an introduction to what you are trying to achieve?
    "Dear customs inspector .............. blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada ........"

    Then again, that might just confirm to them that we are all mad!!??

    Just leave a place for one in the design, and add it as the final
    bit of painting at the very end of the helmets travels.........!

    Quick update, I doodled out a very rough prototype logo for the front of the lid (while I should have been working, it's quiet today though ). I tried to make it in the vein of German wartime awards. I like the way they have an image of something relevant to the award in the badge like a flak gun or tank etc. I used the envelope icon for a post/thread, with the 'WRF' font something like the DRL sports badge.

    This will probably change a bit before I paint it onto the lid. I'm not happy with the eagle on this version.
    Hope you don't mind, but I 'beefed-up' your sketch a bit.

    Kinda weird to see it all the way over there now. It's going to be a very fun journey.

    I doubt that the customs will be able to look if there is a swas on the lid. After all we are having parcels every month of real German regalia whith swastikas and everything and never had problems before.
    The idea with the customade badge is awesome.
    Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377

    I really like that Steve, you have matched it pretty much spot on to one of my final sketches actually. I like the way you have canted the envelope too and pushed it over the edges of the oak leaves.

    I'm getting some stripper today to begin, I should have the thing finished by the weekend. We could begin as early as next week I should point out too, that the reason we can get started so soon is that Todd (helmetone) has shown a great amount of trust and sent the helmet to me with no form of payment from my end yet. We are working out a trade but he suggested sending it in the meantime to save time Cheers Todd.
