    Don't get too excited...I'm sure this one was probably some young kids artistic triumph. The model kit decals have been on the helmet probably about as long as the reddish brown dot camo. I can't even scratch them off. You can easily tell the paint has a lot of age and almost looks convincing enough....but I think it was probably painted and decaled up as a Japanese helmet by some kids playing war. I got it from the US for dirt cheap so I went for it. It actually is a pretty cool looking helmet...odd, but pretty cool.

    I've never seen camo like this used by the British, but it does resemble some tropical camo styles I've seen before. Just the reddish brown color throws me off.

    Hmmm...there may be a chance this camo is legit...lol! Or done by the same kid.

    Just to clarify...this M1 is not mine. It is currently for sale on another forum. Just thought the likeness was too good not to post it here.
