Default M38 with light camo

Hello,

Not very actuve this year but I managed to get this beauty.

ET68 shell, batch number 153, has been found in Normandy years ago and got it from a french collection.

Thank you,

Take care,

Phil.

Good to see you posting again Phil. Nice helmet! What is mixed in with the paint? Wood chips?

Phil, sorry for turning your thread into a "virtual helmet party", but I will crash it as well.

A similar style which had a rubber band on it, with a bolt replaced before the camo was applied.
