Looks nice.  It's a lot lighter to wear though.

Finally... a helmet worthy of my head.

These are mine and Troy's helmets repainted and weathered by Jurgen of 7th Panzer for a Stalingrad period look. I'm very happy with them.  The M-35 is Troy's (was Steve's) and is a really decent looking repo while the other is an original.

Is the M35 on the left?  What's the difference?  They both look super nice. :)  :)

The 35 has finished edge where they roll the steel around but the 42 leaves it as is after the stamping.  42 is on the right when looking at picture.

Nice helmets Mike, I personally like the grey with the single decal. I weathered my eagle decal a while back, nicked it up a bit. Here is a post from three or so years ago I posted in German impression for beginners.
Helmet Reference.

M-40, which is a collectors terminology and not an original designation.

For those who want to portray early war to late war I would recommend the M40 model. I refurbished this one myself...
Grey with a textured finish. Single decal.

Mid to late war: M42.
I added sand to my custom blended grey paint and used a regular paint brush. Then I spray-painted on the tan-yellow paint. Note the scratched off decal impression on the left side...

Those turned out really good! I like the camo on the m42 too. I keep on experimenting on a spare repro shell trying to get a "normandy" scheme but it just never turns out the way I want it to. I suppose I should post my helmet too:



The shell is a Finnish contract m40. I modified the original liner so that it looks just like the German ones from the outside, but underneath it is still the original Finnish mount. I will have to replace it one of these days.  That and give it a good application of dirt.
