M1C Paratrooper Shell

The M1C helmet shell is the essential item for American paratroopers during World War II. It fits on the M1 paratrooper helmet liner and protects the soldier from debris, sun, and rain. But it also serves in everyday life as a basin for shaving or as a pot when times are tough

    M1C Paratrooper Shell paint

    This paratrooper version is painted with a paint based on the shade used by the US army between 1936 and 1944. Being of a matte nature, it will tend to become satin over time and wear, just like original US M1 helmets.

    M1C Paratrooper Shell texture

    The M1C paratrooper helmet shell is coated with a texture called "cork" in order to be as close as possible to the original models. This coating helped to break up the soldier's silhouette and reduce sunlight reflections.
