Hello again, All!
I spoke on the phone to the nice people at At the Front. Gina sent me a very large piece of repro wool to use. I gave a piece to one of my students, and kept a large piece for myself.
Gina also said it may be possible to for me to obtain a left breast pocket to display my badges on.
That was very kind to help out a collector !
Neat idea, Joe. Like to see it when you've finally got it finished.........
Thanks, Steve! I'll be sure to call her again after the Thanksgiving holiday here in the U.S.
Hi Guys, I put my collection together like this. I figured having all of my stuff together in one display case would be easier to keep an eye on while I share it with my students. I used a scrap piece of tunic fabric from At the Front. What do you think?
I also did this with my Soviet collection. I picked the backing out at a local fabric store. It's probably nowhere near what a real Soviet WWII vintage tunic material should look like, but at least the color is close to a picture I brought with me to the store...
Nicely balanced displays......... !
