German Fallschirmjager Helmet - Custom
We ask that you allow 3-4 weeks for delivery, as they are made to order and need suitable time for drying at various stages.
These helmets are impressive reproductions of the German M38, available with a whole host of different options and customisations. Use the drop down boxes to put together a unique helmet to suit your impression. With every Helmet made to order, you know you will be getting a one-off, unique helmet. This obviously means your helmet will vary slightly from pictures of previously made helmets. We ask also that you allow 3-4 weeks for delivery, as they are made to order and need suitable time for drying at various stages. Each Helmet is made to order, with care taken at every stage to ensure the highest standard. Before spraying the helmets we sand and prime them, to ensure the paintwork is top notch. We also use a clear coat varnish at the end to give it the best finish possible.
Paint- All these paint jobs are done using our range of Spray Paints. Camos and designs using more than 1 colour will take longer, and cost a little more to cover this as well as the extra paint used. If there is a paint colour or design you would like to see added, email us and we will see what we can do. These helmets arrive to us in a late-war Field Grey, and you can keep your helmet in this colour for no extra charge. For these helmets only we also offer a 6.FJ Camo finish, which is a textured 2-tone pattern used specifically by the 6. Fallschirmjager during WW2.
Aging- New (Unaged) means we will not age it in any way. It will be sprayed up and varnished and then kept in a condition to be expected going into service for the first time. The 'Lightly Aged' option will be given scratches and a few dents, giving the impression of some campaign service and light battle damage. The 'Heavily Aged' will be given the appearance of significant campaign use and battle damage. It will look like it has seen heavy combat and use, including alot of scratches, scrapes and dents. The paint will be sparse in many places, and the cold, hard steel will be visible occasionally.
Texturing Service - Our helmet specialist can give the helmet surface a textured finish as was commonly seen in the field.
Decals- If you are selecting decals, you must have the decal service box ticked, as we have to apply them before the final varnish and aging process. We take alot of care and use our many years of experience when applying the decals, and use our Humbrol DecalFix to secure their spot on the helmet. Please note that many late war helmets only had one decal applied, however we will apply both decals to the helmet as a default. If you would like just one decal applied to the helmet, please contact as us as soon as possible to ensure that this is done for you.
