gary i never even thought of wetting it down ,i will try and do the same on mine to iron out the creases so thanks for the tip
Here is my Belgian M51 with a period camouflage paint job with a matching liner, shows lots of aging, the Belgium flag has been painted over, I think this was an export helmet used by some other country, the liner looks like a 1960's Vietnam style liner, but it's marked in the crown the mold mark "MIX"

Hi BG, that is very interesting, the liner is unusual and I have never heard of the manufacturer, the chinstraps are Dutch BTW so that makes it an even more intriguing piece in my opinion
Hi BG, good point that could well explain the usage of different nations part's, oh and I forgot to mention in my previous post that I like the camo effect on the shell
i will look forward to seeing your handy work gary and great example Battle gear out of curiosity can i ask if the cammo paint is in solid blotches or has a strained look its hard to tell but ive seen hessian covered examples painted in the exact same way and wondered if this is one of them where the colour has bled through ,just wondering mate ,cheers james
