M40 SS 3-color Normandy camo
Original restored M40 The helmet has been restored to look like it might have seen service with an Waffen-SS units at Normandy.
The helmet was totally stripped of post-war paint. It was then repainted the correct shade of field-gray, textured with aluminum oxide powder. A museum quality ET style SS decal was then applied using the correct varnish method. The helmet was then brushed over with a coat of ordinance tan paint and sprayed with tones of dark green and brown for contrast. This particular camo pattern was popular with both SS and Heer units at Normandy. A few photo show it was used by the 12th SS.
