Please Note: Due to recent on set film work, there is currently a delay of around 1-2 for custom helmet work to commence. 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 with a specific mid-war Field Grey, and you can keep your helmet in this colour for no extra charge.
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.
