Hi, im new here and i have a question but i didnt know where to post the topic so i guess this is the closest. Ive been wondering how to create a WW2 Helmet webbing for my airborne models, a webbing somewhat close to the one DID Ricky Foster or Charles Winstone has, anything will help, thanks

I know some guys use fish-net stockings!

For my British Para netting, which had a very different mesh to the US versions, I used a DML Para string vest dyed with acrylic paint.

It might not hurt to check out hobby and craft stores, they usually have a variety of gauze and netting made for other purposes. Sometimes they match up nicely to your needs.

Welcome aboard.
