APH-5 helmet restoration (paint question)


Recommended Posts

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

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.
