Enigma, do you have a piece of the material used to make the fibre rim? I'm looking to convert my shell to a 42 pattern.

In WW2 photographers/camera men discovered the M1 helmet wasn't practicle when using a camera.
In WW2 the same thing was noted so the T-14 helmet was developed. It used parts from 2 postwar helmets to make a medievel looking hinged visor helmet. The outside was painted with a fine structure paint.
I decided to make one and installed a modified liner with new webbing. Damn that was a difficult project....

Thanks!
I had a lot of fun mixed with a lot of frustration and head scratiching how to make it in the first place.
Still, I am quite happy with the result.

That is a shame, the helmets are done to a very high standard.

I do make to specification or choose from existing stock.
The disadvantage is I am in the Netherlands, my helmets aren't cheap but as you say made to a high standard.

You may PM me if you like.
