Yep new, just put it on yesterday smile
I picked up this shell a number of years ago because it was priced to good to pass up. I had wanted to paint it in camouflage colors and add chicken wire to sit on the shelf. It would be as close I would come to owning one unless fell into one.

On Friday I came across some wire and thought I would experiment to see how well it went on and get a feel for it. I'll eventually paint it but I'm still on the lookout for some much older wire. I want something of heaver gaged and smaller holes.

I thought I post a fun not to serious thread today. I hope none of you were disappointed not being original. I haven't decided on type or color camo pattern yet, I've seen some neat ones. The shell is not worth much and thought I'd give it a little character.

Steve,

I was thinking after near sixty views, I thought I may get a comment. Like Your topic and new chicken wire on a pitted shell ******** why bother. That would of at least been a comment. I got a thick skin you all can speak freely. I wanted to give it new camo restore and wire for personal enjoyment not yet done yet.

Seems like this forum has very few members left willing too express a opinion. I also Understand a lot of members have left or been banned for opinions. I thought I'd throw something outside box just for the banter of it.

In a another gun forum in the off topic area I showed how to restore a 75 year old cast iron skillet, and got a lot of responses. Some of the guys dug out what they thought was junk from the garage and are now using it.

Just my thoughts, this was a fun forum back in the day. Sorry Dave, I did Use the word ******** but I didn't use any thing that started with F

Steven,

You did not pose a question or request comments about helmet. Like most people, I looked at it and wondered where the topic was going. Maybe we'd get to see some paint next ... or maybe some old chicken wire you found.

Nice helmet, personally I would leave it as is or maybe try to find a liner, depending on price and availability...but it looks like it might turn out to be a neat project when painted,,, thanks for the picture, Steven!

Nice lid and wire... I'd paint this puppy in an aged Feldgrau and then apply a camo paint type Sicily or Normandy.
