Notice the white paint is not undernath the red. Done on purpose Im assuming to keep it from turning the red pink?

You wouldn't have to wait for one color to dry to apply the other so the process would be faster, I assume.

The rust bleed thru and overall age patina speak volumns. One of Rons powerful salvo’s!👍

Fantastic helmet. As always Ron. Sadly gas mask cross is fake, as far I can see there is decal on the lid. Cans like these are fantasy items. There is no single example of these in collections or even period photos. You might check on equipment section. Just my observation.

Cordially,
Rob
