  1. M-40 Helmet Relic.

    Lou, I've had some pictures of the Liner on another Forum and this is what I've been told: "Look at the liner rivets - they are the FLAT aluminium type used by the Germans and NOT the DOMED brass ones the Norwegians put in after dying the leather". So it could well be a genuine Liner
  2. bragging

    Just put a Red background behind it..

    Cheers Lou, it didn't cost much to be honest and I wanted the "worn" look more to add the helmets age. I'll keep an eye out for a genuine "old" liner, I'm in no rush. I'm getting another chin strap and it's a very old one too, and cheap
  4. M-40 Helmet Relic.

    It's not a problem Lou, thanks for your help. It's a lot darker than in the pictures, may be it's the flash that makes it brighter. These are about the best I can do, in normal light you can't see the reddish colour, as in the first picture here.
  5. M-40 Helmet Relic.

    Cheers Lou, is this picture any help?
  6. M-40 Helmet Relic.

    Liner now added with out the pins.. for now
  7. Just hope they restore the Panther to a decent condition, magnificent beast.. Some great restoration projects for the future
  8. M-40 Helmet Relic.

    Liner has been bought..
  9. M-40 Helmet Relic.

    It's too badly pitted to see Lou, I've measured both the inside and outside of the helmet and I'm almost sure it's a 64". Thanks for your help mate
  10. M-40 Helmet Relic.

    Sorry, that's a 64" shell.
  11. M-40 Helmet Relic.

    Any one know what size liner for a 642 shell?
  12. M-40 Helmet Relic.

    Three pins have now been added. Now for a M40 Liner... if I can find a original one
  13. I'm going to try and restore this M40 with original liner and chin strap and may be give a simple coat of paint, I don't know just yet.. I don't think it's in a too bad of condition and it was dug up quite recently. I haven't received it yet and will add updates to any work done to it
  14. M35 SS DD Helmet

    Nice looking helmet too
  15. Dinky Stuka 721

    To accompany the Dinky Spitfire, for the 1969 "Battle of Britain" movie, here is the German "Stuka". This is also in pristine condition. How much fun I had as a child playing with the "Spitty & Stuka"
