They are all in the helmets of the Austrian Empire, issued till 1806 with many units retaining them until the major fighting in 1809, then a few keeping them up to the end of the Napoleonic era.
The white is built up from layers of progressively lighter and lighter blue.

The major white layer is last, at this point the flag poles are also 'touched up' to bring out the white stripes.

For the officers there also appears to have been a brass fitting under the black over yellow comb - which makes for tricky painting at times.
Last touch ups are done and then all is ready for the gloss layer and flocking.
Final pictures of this division to come soon.
