    Default winter camo shell opinion

    Hello again,
    this time i would like to have your opinion about this winter camo helmet!
    i don't have many pictures, so i know it can be a little difficult to give a good opinion...
    but i know some people here have x-ray eyes so it can maybe be enough
    here we go !
    thank you
    best regards

    From the pictures supplied it looks as though it could be OK. I would think it would be difficult - but not impossible, to replicate this. But in hand it might look different again! I would ask for better pictures of the inside and out!
    Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.

    Pictures a blurry and it's hard to see but it looks a bit like spray paint but it could be ok, better pictures would be great.

    thank you for your answers
    so the problem is that there is rust under the white paint? it should mean that the helmet was a rusty relic repainted in white?

    white wash was water based so you would expect a rusty patina no? ,to be honest i would walk away and save your money the red flag for me is the liner pin area is painted up to the hole this should show a ring of original paint where field applied over a complete helmet

    it seems on the first picture that in the front of the helmet the rust is over the paint ?
    and what are the typical fake traits?
