Repainted in Olive Drab 7, the shade used by the US army between 1936 and 1944. The shell has a granular coating thanks to the addition of cork during the painting process.

M1 Paratrooper Helmet

The M1 helmet is a crucial component for paratroopers. It shields them from debris, sunlight, and rain. In everyday life, it serves as a basin for shaving or a cooking pot in difficult times.

  • M1 Paratrooper Helmet paint

    This paratrooper helmet is painted using a paint based on the shade used by the American army between 1936 and 1944. It has a matte finish that will tend to become satin with time and wear, just like the original helmets.

  • M1 Paratrooper Helmet texture

    The M1 paratrooper helmet is coated with a "cork" texture to closely match the original models. This coating was used to break up the soldier's silhouette and reduce sun glare.

  • M1 Paratrooper Helmet chin strap

    The helmet chin strap is a paratrooper reproduction made by Mon Casque M1 with woven strap copied from the original model. It also has snap buttons at the ends for attachment to the liner. The metal hardware is post-war military issue.
