Store: German Repro Items: #0003 Para Helmet M37 Model Heer

M37 Model with M38 liner Fallschirmjägerhelm (Paratroopers Helmet) Heer: This is a first class reproduction of a Heer (Army), Fallschirmjager Helmet. It is based on a very rare M37 model shell, with early pattern helmet bolts. It has been modified using M38 liner which was common practice in mid-late war when earlier produced models were pressed into service. Notice the slots at the side of the helmet and the extra holes for retaining the original liner at the sides and rear. Also notice that the spanner bolts are Luftwaffe grey in colour, further identifying the liner as a replacement!

This helmet is based on one used intially by the 1st Parachute Kompanie and then the 1st Parachute Battalion, prior to their amalgamation into the Luftwaffe.

The decals are 100% intact and both are very dark and aged due to their storage conditions post war. The helmet is remarkably well preserved with only minor bubble rusting to the shell. If you want to expand this rusting them just leave it outside in the wet for 6 months+!

The liner and chinstraps have the look and feel of a 60+ year old field helmet, dry and brittle to touch. Notice the detail, painted chinstrap popper, M37 slots and holes on dome sides, Luftwaffe painted spanner bolts, quick release showing light rusting etc. This is a brilliant replica.

This helmet would make a superb item in you paratrooper collection. It would also make a great filler till you get a genuine M37Heer helmet which is highly unlikely as very few M37's survived the war!

This item comes in a suitable aged box and a 'send home' label! A great present for the military collector!
