  • How come you don't wet sand after applying the paint, like you do for primer? Wouldn't sanding the paint layer result in a cleaner finish?

  • Although this was an amazing restoration, there are two flaws:the first is that you stripped away the original insignia;this is a major taboo among collectors/historians. Personally, if you would've taken measurements of the original cross, and applied those to the new paint, then I would've found it be a nearly perfect restoration. However, because you freehanded the final design of the cross, didn't go over the liner/crest studs, and didn't add the lettering, it appears inauthentic. The second reason is that the original paint seems to have been applied by hand, rather than by spray. Apart from those two things, this was a great restoration. The first thing is what I would call a liner frame, and the second things would be a corrugated liner band. These are rough descriptions based off of their purpose/me conparing them to other helmet liner components.

  • The old original helmet look strange, like they took a old helmet and just painted it white, the paint job was not very good, but I can see that they had not painted the top part or the metal rim, I think you made a great job, but I had left those part unpainted. Do you have some reference images of how those helmets looked when they where used?

  • Not to nitpick or anything but you put the leather liner of a model 1915 helmet in a model 1926 helmet. The hollow metal rectangles you put in? The suspension, it's supposed to click on there easily without the corrugated metal. And as courtesy to future buyers if you sell these, write the helmet size on the inside, makes it easier if the liner doesn't have it written on it! Other than that, well done.

  • No... The metal surface is too rough, should've repeatedly sanded, primed, polished before applying the base coat... Also parts should've been individually treated before final assembly

  • Amazing job on that cross (and the helmet in general, obviously). Do you think a printed templet held down with double sided tape might have been an easier alternative?

  • The part you're unsure of the English name for looks like a liner mount of some kind. It's what the lining attaches to so the helmet will fit different heads.

  • Nice job, but I have a question. Why expensive mc-51 instead of sandblasting with soda? It's much cheaper and more effective!

    magnumataredfoxmagnumataredfox7 gün önce
    • +D DFishFunky really??? Omg, world is crazy, because here in Russia sodium carbonate worth a bit more expansive than river sand, but mc-51 is 12 dollars for 250 ml!

      magnumataredfoxmagnumataredfox5 gün önce
    • +magnumataredfox.. you mean sodium carbonate ? Ahh.. that's ok .. the rust will gone and add an extra protection to the steel.. (with electro washing) but you need a lot of that.. A lot and its not cheap.. a sack of that can worth 30-70 dollar..

    • +D DFishFunky Sorry for my English, I'm not native speaker.

      magnumataredfoxmagnumataredfox5 gün önce
    • +D DFishFunky Just realized that you would think I mean soda as "carbonated drink" liquid, but I meant soda like white colored dry sand, the same as "baking soda", it's good for soft sandblusting thin surfaces!

      magnumataredfoxmagnumataredfox5 gün önce
    • +D DFishFunky It's ok to not sand thin metal using sand or сopper slag, but it's ok to use industrial soda for this purpose, because soda is much softer. When I have to sandblast thin metal like car radiators I usually use soda and it's ok, but I didn't think that there are risk of accelerate new rust spread, maybe you're right.

  • It looks like the two slots in front were there to hold a badge. The badge was probably either lost or removed and the Red Cross painted on afterwards. This helmet may not have originally been for the Red Cross. The original badge may have been for a different service. Would be nice to fabricate a metal Red Cross badge and reopen those slots to mount it.

  • I’m sorry to seem like suck a douche in the comments but this helmet is almost worthless now, what was an absolutely stunning historical piece is now a plastic looking reenacting helmet, this is quite possibly the most useless restoration ever, it was sad to see such an interesting historical piece get wasted.
