The armistice that was signed in 1953 that ended the Korean War requires both sides (the North and the South) to restrict access inside the DMZ to MPs only.
This stencil is suitable for hand or spray painting but we recommend applying it in sections and allowing the paint to dry before moving onto the next section. You cannot apply it as a single stencil due to the curve of the helmet! It measures 143mm wide and 80mm tall. You can get general stencil instructions here.
You can create the white band round the helmet using standard masking or decorators tape!
