    Spanish Modelo Z 42 Helmet.

    Post by 1stDivVet on Tue Apr 26, 2011 5:08 am

    Here's my Spanish Modelo Z 1942 helmet. This is an early one with the 3 pad leather and felt liner that is riveted in. A friend had this and had removed the liner and was going to put a newer helmet liner from a Mich helmet to use as a biker helmet. He had used some cheap primer on the shell. I saw the liner and asked about it and he showed me the helmet. Needles to say, I dug out my old motor cycle helmet from the 70's (an Easy Rider Capt. America style one) and traded him. I had $5 in the biker helmet, so no loss there. I re-riveted the liner in and now just need to strip the cheap primer off. The liner is ID'ed but I can only make out part of what is written inside.


    The liner..There are 3 lines of writing in it. Top is un-readable (at least to my eyes), Next line says CAPITAN. Last line says B. Maiz Bello

    If i'm the stupid one, why do they have a book with pictures of the militaria and I have the real things??

    Nice. It was used to write name of the company, unit, and the user in this case Captain Bello Maíz, it´s curios because troop class rotate them so the captain decided to claim one for himself for his exclusive use, probably he got a new one and left it when he left company.

    Congratulations even I have no idea about helmets
