    you guys leave my hifi alone & for your info it was a vet bring back from WW1

    i haven't got a relic liner so i cant do that & although some of of the original paint does still seem to be there its not enough to attempt a slight strip back to make it relic but i do aim to age it once done

    well ive been speaking to a guy i know about this helmet & he recons i should leave it alone & just remove the rank markings from the front but apart from that its in original condition & the repaint would have been done in the field as it were. so there you go thats that little project out the window as im all for keeping things in their original state so no more updates other then this one

    Hi Nick, are the rank bars painted on or done in felt tip pen (sorry that is what I thought it looked like )? But I think you are doing the right thing.

    Cheers, Ade.
