OK, I know this title is for steel helmets, and this ones plastic!!! but its been bugging me for years. I got given it about 20 years ago when as a kid I decided I wanted a german helmet for christmas (my parents always wanted a normal farmers son who would want overalls or wellys or somthing useful) and they produced this, I was dissappointed as it wasnt the coal scuttle type, but it went into the collection but ended up in a shed covered in piegon muck till I retreved it the other day after wondering about what it actually was.
I guess its been repainted and a few odd decals added (swastika on other side) and I always suspected it was post war, the nearest I can find to it is a luftschutz type helmet, but these are usually steel with air vents in the side.
Can anyone ID it please?
