Custom Soviet Ssh-36 helmet "Khalhingolka"

Ssh-36 is a first Soviet fully original steel helmet.
It was used by Red Army at Hassan lake(193 and Khalkhin-Gol (1939) incidents, in Spanish Civil war 1936-1939, Finnish Winter War 1939-1940 and of cause in ww2:






Despite the fact that it was done a few million of such helmets it's a very rare accessories in 1/6 scale.
I heard only about Tony Barton' s 1/6 variant of this helmet:

I found a rusty Ssh-36 in the dense forest of Kaluzhskaya oblast where the bloody battle was in 1941-1942.
It has many combat injuries as you can see from the photo below:

I had an idea to make 1/6 scale resin model of this helmet with 100% coincidence of the surfaces.
As to my own experience I Mean it's extremely difficult to do it if you only have photos without original in your hands.
My first two attempts to solve this problem in such way was failured.
I read about 3D scanning method from internet and decided to try it.
Hope you'll enjoy the result:

I hadnt heard of this type of helmet. Great information regarding its history and nice photographs. I would have takn the pics as soviets with german helmets if i didnt know what i was looking at.

Your resin version is expertly done. Amazing work!

Nothing similar with Swiss army helmet:

I don't have Tony's version.
I think it'll be correct to compare proportions of the models and the real Ssh-36.

Looks very good. I just happened to see one of these in a picture today. It was a picture of German and Soviet soldiers together a few years before the war.
