    Default M.35 Heer SE 66 "ambush pattern" hand painted camo

    Camo paint doesn't adhere to these parade finish helmets. This came out of an old collection. Feldgrau overpaint, then camo splotch over that later.

    Great lid Craig!!

    Love the decal peeking out and the classic colour scheme.

    Another similar, recently sold. If the parade finish isn't prepped properly, the issue camo paint, sometimes pretty flimsy as it was a powder mix, won't adhere. This one looks cleaned on the outside as well.

    Mauser, I think you know what I'm going to say about this one; camo paint in pristine condition, little if any dark rust patina, bright colors, heavy chipping to the rim, It all screams recent.

    I like that one using natural foliage combined with spray paint. Those photos were taken 70 odd years ago. If those exact same helmets were posted on the forum today, I would expect they would no longer look brand new like in the photos, but would show significant combat wear, age, fading, rust, grime, patina, and so on.
