Default Opinions on a Quist M40 Wintercamo

Hi folks,

I like to get your opinions on this M40 wintercamo.
Markings Q?? (it's a 64) D? (N) ?42
Painted white, can't see if there are decals underneath 'cause I don't want to remove the very brittle cloth and wiring .
Inner is dark green.

The green under the white wash does not seem to be the correct factory's color.

And too much is too much.... White paint then white cloth then and so on...

This one has everything but a breadbag strap attached to it. I wouldn't be surprised if there was an SS decal and a medic's cross hidden under the burlap too.

I agree with the naysayers. Bad to the bone, no question
