This is an acrylic based paint which means you can water it down with water. We feel this is an acceptable compromise on the original paint so we can legally send this paint to you! This paint is being sold to do one helmet but you will most likely be able to get two helmets painted from it.
This helmet paint has been manufactured to an original WW2 specification and is probably as close as you will get to an original German WWII paint for early war helmets and reissues.
Some Notes on this WW2 German Helmet paint:
Used on German M35, M40 and M38 paratrooper helmets until mid 1940. According to RAL 840 B 2, it is defined as old No. 2 sometimes mistakenly called Field Grey No. 2
This RAL 7009 Jägergrau is not the postwar 7009 colour that you can buy from any outlet!
The RAL colour chart was revised in 1953 and 1961 and thus many RAL colours received other names, so this all adds to the rich confusion of German Helmet paint!
