    Default WWII USMC Camo Cover and Helmet

    I've got this one in a while ago and just got around to taking pictures. Camo cover is in very nice condition and has the slits which I believe is 2nd Pattern. It's named to Deppen on the long chinstrap. Liner is a Firestone and you can see wear around the eyelet from where an EGA once rested. Helmet is Fixed Bail and I added on the liner chinstrap for looks.

    Thanks for looking!

    Lovely set, may I be rude and ask for detailed shots of the cover inside out?

    Thanks guys, and Andy all I did was hang a 500 watt light from the ceiling. Looks nicer than straight on light.

    No problem Rene I took some pictures of the cover and also the shell. You can see the fading of the exposed areas of the cover compared to the fingers.
