    Nope. The decals are bad, scratched and artificially aged, and it looks as if they were applied over pitting. The liner looks bad as well, the draw string definitely is, and the paint looks off - it has been applied over rust. There is nothing that I like about this one at all. The shell is real, but nothing else. I would stay away from the red cross helmet in the back ground as well. Just my 2 cents. Jim G.

    Hi Darren, Jim has covered all the points on this one, nothing really left to say. Other than bad.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks guys. I wondered about the scratches on the decal as well. If there is nothing else I've learned about fake decals, I have learned to look for isolated scratching/chipping over the decals in an attempt to cover imperfections in repro decals, and to simulate aging. I still like to check with you guys regardless...just to be safe

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    The liner should have told you all you need to know , and the paint , and the decals well they are not important anymore if the rest is also bad.

    This one looks like a Norwegian rework. Very bad fake...

    Paint, liner, decals are all bad. Some self study of the subject matter is required as well, nothing beats an education. ;-)
