    Something just landed on my doorstep. My good friend Todd / helmetone told me to keep an eye on the postman so I had a feeling some German steel was inbound.

    I fought my way into the plastic, tough work. Managed to get a look at the inside rim. ET64, looks like an M40 from the colour.....

    OK guys so I managed to dig it out enough to see the lot number. I looked it up in hte GHW database and it looks like a single decal luft. That's pretty cool, ET M40 luft lids are a bit less common than the ubiquitous Quist M40 luft.

    I'm glad someone is picking up where Seba left off, a forum is not complete without his presence.

    Let me guess,,,, is it a helmet?

    Damn, Ned you just gave me a de-rection. I think the thing is actually concave at this point. While I'm confirming this, here are a couple more pics. Something is wrong, there's no bird on this luft helmet..... Todd sent me a lemon.
