Combat Aviation Art is a great tradition that goes back to WW1 and the hand painted decorations on the sides of fabric airplanes. Throughout the years, Combat Aviation Art has found its way to all sorts of related items. In the helmet depicted in this picture, I airbrushed a commemorative scene of Vietnam on the back of an AFH-1 (Anti-Fragmentation Helmet) that was used by Vietnam crewmembers.
