Free French, South African Mark I, North Africa configuration
Category: WWII Allies
South African Mark I restored to look like it might have seen service with a Free French unit in North Africa. The helmet was totally stripped of post-war paint then repainted textured with the correct shade of South African desert tan. The French tri-colors was hand rendered as all originals were. The helmet has been heavily aged to reflect not just battle wear, but also the conditions of North Africa.
