    I think it's a nice well used example of a WWII French Infantry M26, looks like it's been together for a long time, it doesnt look like a recent put together and all the parts look like the aging matches.

    I like it

    Excellent example of these superb Models geelong, what I particularly like about your example is the patina and general wear on the shell, it shows it's been used and has not had a respray like some other examples available, I personally like helmets with rust patches it show's character.
    The liner is in excellent condition and it is good to be able to see the makers mark still legible.

    Love the helmet, I like stuff that has been used, I wasn't sure about the badge, definiton on the grenade flame looked a bit off, but it closely resembles one of the originals shown in this link, so it all looks good to me.
