These had some distinctive Helmet and other uniform options. Even if it is 15 or 28mm heads we can swap onto WW-II Soviets.

Tempted?

Interesting – I've never heard of this. I don't see any helmet images in the links, did I miss them?

I remember those crested helmets. Been a long time.

I also remember them. We were still using them in the 70's.

Just glue on a little piece of styrene strip, of the desired shape and size.

The glue can fill in a bit to match the rounded portion of the helmet, especially if you use epoxy.
