Re: Very Nice Württemberg M15 Enlisted Helmet

Great helmets!
I sadly sold one years ago. One that was a local find, in Ghent...
But I wasn't collecting at taht time, and needed the money.
On my list now.

Re: M15 Mecklenburg spike

Not that mine was spike-less, but I was glad to find one before getting the helmet! This helmet got two spikes now. :D And looks good with any of them, but I do like him most with the flutted one. https://i.servimg.com/u/f90/17/44/33/68/rimg2630.jpg https://i.servimg.com/u/f90/17/44/33/68/captur26.p...

No need to wait, it can always be send to me, and I send it to you. It will cost you ...

Re: how to... display question

Hey Tony, yes indeed.
Problem is I want them on very different places.
A other option could be to put more U profiles against my back wall. And may be standard brackets might fit then.
Good point!
I will test it.

Re: how to... display question

Thanks for your gentle comments. I am evoluating and noticed that ajustable spindles would be better. Not that hard to make. When the small spindle slides into a large shaft and can be hold in place by a screw, it should work. But in the meanwhile I'll customize my supports... https://i.servimg.com/...
