No reviews

Don't forget these...


Actual helmet is pictured, size 68 shell, and 61 liner, and is unique in the pattern and colors, as I use a special blend created by me using original examples as a reference. Germans began painting their helmets early on when they realized that Shiny Apple Green and textured but Dark Gray weren't really the best camouflage in all environments, and could be seen easily from the air. On all fronts, German soldiers used their own vehicle/equipment paint to paint their helmets, or used locally acquired or captured paints. This led to an almost endless number of colors/schemes, no two of which were alike.


This was a reproduction that I had for a film shoot, but have since acquired an original. An absolutely fantastic addition to a kit or collection at a great price.
