  • Это не реставрация, а порча хорошего оригинального предмета *facepalm* This is not a restoration, but a deterioration of a good original item.

  • Brutal hack. Also you missed or chose to ignore the writing on the cross. At 12:35 you can see "C - R - F' for the Croix-Rouge française.

  • Au vu de la peinture d'origine, ce casque Adrian n'est pas un casque de la croix rouge ; il a été repeint grossièrement en blanc ; c'est probablement un casque de bidasse au départ. Dommage de l'avoir repeint sans avoir tenu compte de ça... Il aurait fallu le repeindre à la main avec une croix faite aussi à la main...

  • Helmets like that shouldn’t be restored, just like German helmets which still have paint or decals on them, you do not take it off, just because you paint it back on means nothing.

  • 11:45 These are called "gaufrettes" in French, they were used in the 1915 Adrian Helmet used during WW1. But what you are restoring is 1926 Adrian helmet (Those are the type used in WW2) therefore, there is no need for those gaufrettes.

  • While I appreciate the effort.. This looks terrible. In my opinion, original military helmets should be left alone and left unrestored unless it is going to be used for reenactment, to save it from the rust, or it is faithfully restored. The rust on this helmet could've been stopped and left, I doubt you will be reenacting with this, and the paint is lacking the grit that was used so it didn't shine. The liner is WW1, though the shell is WW2 (Though I guess it is possible leftover liners were inserted into new helmets). A dislike from me, but that doesn't mean you should stop restorations! There are plenty of forums online that can assist you in restoring helmets to look even more like the originals.. I'd love to see you restore a helmet using the techniques they can offer to you one day.

  • Not the original style, could have been sandblasted for a better finish and metal could have been polished to not see the rust damage underneath the paint. Also the cross is not at the right place and is not even proportional :(

  • Nice job.. I think you may find that spot / glazing putty maybe helpful with metal that’s really pitted, I know it’s a long process to remove pits, but well worth it, also another tip, or at least one I use is to color match the paint as it is today, within reason, so in the end you get a helmet that looks pretty much as original to the aging, and not just gloss white because it was gloss white in 1918, just suggestion, but still an overall great job
