Hi everyone,

 

i'm trying to restore my APH-5 helmet for a us marine helicopter display 1968-70. i've seen lots of APH-5 helmet pictures with all sorts of green colors.

Looking for a darker green glossy paint color i see on some HMM-xxx pictures. Any idea's or information please.

 

Thanks

grtz

I would look at the vehicle paint the Marine Corps used.Im guessing it was readily avaiable during the period or if they used a certain color number on the aircraft for paint.

For the paint source...check with Army Jeep Parts web site....he has many shades of OD for jeeps over the decades....chances are he has the right shade...
