This is a supremely good copy of an M40 German helmet, the weight is accurate to within 2% for a helmet of its size when compared to an original. The liner is also accurately recreated with soft leather – it even has a Reich’s Bureau number on the chinstrap. You will be impressed – For attention to detail and materials, these are far superior to Made in China M40 copies.
Helmets of the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) were factory painted a medium to dark 'blue grey' colour. German Army (Heer), Navy (Kriegsmarine), and Waffen-SS (Armed-SS) helmets generally bore various shades of medium to dark field green. The Afrika Korp wore yellowish-brown helmets. On the eastern front, in winter, helmets were invariably over-painted white – in some circumstances some were factory-finished in that colour. Certain units of the SS wore black helmets. German Naval (Kriegsmarine) helmets were, on occasion, painted a 'battleship grey' colour.
