Wich often painted on a(fieldgray) helmet around decal with a mild grey paint.
Do you mean the one on the picture below? If so, no, it is in standard RAL 7009 "Light Field Grey" / "Apple Green" (but the camera flash has made the colour look more like light grey). Yes, they were often hand repainted in various shades of grey (as you say, painting around the decals) for shipboard use - I have intended to do one like that, but haven't got around to it yet...
Here is a link to an original repainted one, what RAL colour do you think has been used here??: http://www.german-helmets.com/KM%20M1935-gray%20SD-EXTRA-PHOTOS.htm
I am also studie the kriegsmarine helmets.
I shall try 7000 or 7001........
Intersting KM helmet picture...does the flash fool me? or do i notice something blue-grey.
