Hey all

I thought I had one in a kit somewhere but it seems not.. Im looking for a 1/35 dak pith helmet, part of dressing a model to match a photo.. I am struggling to even find a kit I can buy locally with one in. in fact short of spending 30+ bucks to get the old miniart kit from the UK I drew a blank. Im down to attempting a scratchbuild at this point!

If anyone had a spare one from something they could bung in an envelope I would be very grateful, or if someone has the miniart afrika korps kit or something similiar I would cheerfully pay a fair price for it.

Thanks
Shaun

I am away from the bench till Sunday night, but I think I do indeed have one. I’ll check when I get home and hunt it up for you.

Well based on reference pics every vehicle in North Africa and Italy had one hanging on it as a memento/trophy so shouldnt have trouble finding homes for them ;)
