nice addition and very inkeeping with your helmet NZ ,i can understand why they were upgraded to the net with retaining hooks though as my early net easily slips off my m56
Finally received the West German helmet net after some delay, ebay seller decided to go on vacation before sending it out. I wanted to roast his arse but just couldn't be eft. Anyways it is a very nice old new stock item that was wrapped and unused, the pull-ring adjustment reminds me of the WWII issue helmet net. Looks great alongside the M56.
I should maybe one day get myself a Westy?
NF great pictures and nicely displayed too ,glad to hear the nets arrived safe and sound Rene' you will need some westies ,they will be the yang to your yin i made the mistake of trying to collect a west german helmet once but was shocked to learn there are so many models to collect and ive still yet to find one more variation
i wonder if talcum powder would help Rene' ,if you get bored of those housewives try and bag that first ball roller westy ,it nearly cost me a divorce collecting this lot, maybe i should try a new hobby
