    The same is in modern Russian Army. It is not too long procedure because long stitches are used.

    The germans was much smarter, they had buttons sewn on so it was easy to switch their inner collar.

    Cool - if you get one though, make sure not to have a red star on the forehead, that does look goofy.

    I havent tryed the 36 so cant say about that one but the 40 sits perfect on my head, I actually prefers that one before the modern Swedish one (first version, the 2nd version we have are wastly improved) wich says allot imo about the 40

    Well, it was a practical helmet. SSh40's were used until the 1980's for training/cadets. Maybe they still are?
