    I'm adapting a mesh to make a pep file for a World War One German helmet - the M16 or M18 versions with the deeper sides and longer peak than the WW2 ones.

    I can find measurements for the circumferences, but nothing for the height, width or length.

    Is there anyone who has access to an M16 or M18 and would be prepared to post some measurements, please?

    Thanks.

    Phil

    Nothing?

    Can anyone suggest some sites to try? I've searched quite a bit, but don't have a lot of military knowledge.

    Will take a little bit longer. My friend is not at home for a few days. I will come back then, if it's not too late.

    Hei, finally I got the dimensions. :D
    He used the same method, with two squares, to measure it from front: 240 mm.
    It is 160 mm high and in circumferences it has 710 mm.
    I hope this is useful.
    Cheers.
