    Hi James, I have a few of these models with red biro, and pretty sure that some have blue/black biro Arabic script in them too, however I agree with your comments about staying clear of some Iraqi helmets as they could be embellished with fantasy markings I suppose ( think of all the M1 helmets flooding the market a few years back , after Saving private Ryan!!)

    Absolutely disgraceful, I too would have been very annoyed , more so as someone probably bought this model in good faith, I am not surprised though as this is a "good" way to make a profit...even though it is on the highest scale of dishonesty...shame on the seller for his/her actions.

    I have repainted a few helmets from my collection over the years, purely for my own gratification, however I would be honest in my description stating the helmet had had a re-paint if I decided to sell it on!!

    In conclusion your statement about being wary of buying these models, is clearly justified, and thank you James for raising this ongoing "fakery" issue.

    republican guard insignia helmet's are few and far between so for one seller to have so many to sell seems a bit odd
