    Hey guys, thought I'd show my Wehrmacht helmet, a M42 model, and I found a great old German newsreel to go along with it, showing how they made them. Also added some explanatory detail:

    Cool post. A auto parts company about 30 miles south of me stamped out helmets for US soldiers during WWII. Wish the tooling and plans were stil laround but are now long gone.

    Nice pics Amwerican lockpicker! Looks like the bottom one should have been wearing the reinforced shield! I bet they all had a headache after wearing those!

    Although I really don't think the first two were really feeling much of anything...
