OK. Just splashed out on a few bits and bobs so two questions...
1. New replica FJ helmet to paint (bargain at £32, and fits well).. Ral 8030... 1942 onwards or RAL7028 Dunklegelb 1943 onwards... I wil also be spraying mess tin and cup. I would like it to pass muster, but would also like it to be as generic as possible for future summer events.
2. New M42 sand coloured field cap, came without insignia. Who is good for a reasonably priced LW tropical cockade and eagle?

A few weeks left until a North Africa period event, so could order from abroard!
Any advice appreciated.
Regards
Chriis.

Well you could compromise and paint the M38 in dunkelgelb and get hold of a helmet cover?

Thanks for the reply. The helmet is going to be a spare one that I thought I would spray up as tropical. I think I will go with the RAL8020.
