I worked at a living history museum for a number of years where I worked in two of the parks time periods, I then did some reenacting, French and Indian War, American Revolution and War of 1812 so all well before you're time period ST. I've also had an interest in WW II for years and there are/were several kits I'd like to put together. I've thought those helmets from the Big One were cool and have wanted one for quite some time.
