    Very cool display James, like em all, the camo netting on the Mk3 and Mk4 is it original period netting?

    No biggy really just curious. Wink

    Both nets look ok for the period.

    I have MKIIIs in my collection with differently sized nets on them(untouched condition).

    A little off topic James, but what have you used to display the lid/mask combo ,looks like some black shiny plastic stuff..I'm always open to new ideas of how to display my lids (other than the usual and expensive poly-styrene model heads ) Question Wink

    That's a very nifty idea Mate, I may try this out for myself, and covering the base with DPM is genius ,it really does look very effective...cool Stuff.

    Graham win's the prize ,he guessed right..the prize I will leave to you Mate Laughing
