Here's mine M40. Size 64, original shell, I restored it my self. No primer or filler (putty) was used. I filled these small metal pits only with RAL 6006 paint. Hole on the top was welded. In the nearest future I will decorate it with single SS decal.

When I bought it, it looked so:

M40 is on the left after sandblasting. M35 on the right is not finished yet. Gonna be RAL 6003 double decal Heer.
