DIM'S LIDS - Restored WWII Combat Helmets

Have a dig around, might be something you like!

RESTORED WWII HELMETS FROM AUSTRIA, AUSTRALIA, BRITIAN, GERMANY, ITALY, JAPAN, RUSSIA, Sth AFRICA AND UNITED STATES (and post-war ISRAEL).

 G'day! For as far back as I remember, I have always had a thing for steel combat helmets and this interest has evolved into collecting and restoring original combat helmets. Restoration because I could not afford the price of original helmets; so the next best thing was to restore original shells. My helmets are pre-1945 unless otherwise noted. I salvage original parts where I can and use high quality replacement parts where this is not possible. Restorations are based on original examples and specifications and I generally complete to a factory type finish. These lids are original and forgotten historic pieces, sometimes in a sorry state and I enjoy bringing them back to life. Thanks for visiting!

Helmets shown on this website are for sale!
