    Hi. I was buying some stuff from a fellow collector that is looking to lighten his load. He offered me this helmet but neither of us have any clue what it is. If anyone can help identify a country or time period (or both!!!) that would be great. Just need something I can research off of. So far I think it may be an Italian open face sallet but don't know a time period or if I'm right. It looks like it has age but someone cleaned it to death at some point. Also, the repair/patch is interesting. Any info anyone can provide to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. I didn't want to full this with too many photos so I have the first two and then the rest as links. Thanks for looking. https://www.collectingfool.com/helmet-plume01.jpg https://www.collectingfool.com/helmet-plume02.jpg https://www.collectingfool.com/helmet-plume03.jpg https://www.collectingfool.com/helmet-plume04.jpg https://www.collectingfool.com/helmet-plume05.jpg https://www.collectingfool.com/helmet-plume06.jpg https://www.collectingfool.com/helmet-plume07.jpg

    A rather interesting British GS (General Service) Mark 7 this particular helmet bares a 2011 dated contract label.. It has been nicely overpainted and camoed over with tan paint by spraying through a section of netting.. It is as well sporting a Surefire HL1-C-TN side mount helmet light and has been nicely outfitted with a 6 piece comfort pad kit.. Regards Mark

    Yep! It was great---even my wife liked it. I wasn't sure if I would or not based on the previews. A work art and genius! Oh, BTW, I guess FB deleted my account. No details. Went to appeal but no response after four days. Pretty sure my account was hacked based on some events that occured the day before. I was asked by a forum member what l had put on the 72 hr. auction, and I had not put anything on there and never had. He said it must have been a FB glitch. Next morning I was disabled. I also found a second account in my name and profile photo, but nothing else. I never opened another account.

    I'm working on a new video about Fbg.bf I've found two rados it can be used on. It's Torn.Fu.b1 and 15W.S.E.b I believe that Torn.Fu.b1 used by reconnaissance units. But what was 15W.S.E.b used for when remote control device was used? Please tell me more about how Fbg.bf was used. LA6NCA

    My Fu2/5 setup was quite messy, so I decided I build a few display boards to demo the Panzer radio setup for an impending exhibition. Makes it a bit easier to transport, set up and demonstrate. Unfortunately not a lot to hear on 10m VHF at the moment but at least I can demonstrate the intercom. Only missing the "Scheifringübertrager"... regards, Funksammler

    Well we are on reduced hours now and I will crack the garden first as it will not stop growing just because of Corona! If I have more time free I will do the attic and this sort of progect that can be fueled with beer!

    Guys, I thought of this quote! https://quotefancy.com/quote/1535229/Alastair-Reynolds-A-city-s-only-ever-three-hot-meals-away-from-anarchy Probably relevant these days! Rich

    That is good, I do have some of the the DDR version and I will post it up for reference when I find it. Of course it would be interesting to know if they used 'New old stock' Wehrmacht stuff as they did early on with weapons etc? Rich

    Very nice setup. The slip ring was a rarety I only saw once at the Littlefield collection. He was able to procure one in its original box. I'm sure no one bothered to remove them from scrap tanks after the war, and they were smelted together with the rest of the tank. Here are the pics I took from the one installed in that Panther:

    FB still hasn't told me what I did. Looks like I have been deleted. Can't even connect to FB anymore. URL is blocked. May look into violation of 1st Amendment right. At least they should tell me why I was banned.
