    Default My new project: Building up a Russian WW2 fighter mannequin

    Hello everyone,

    until now I was only collecting German militaria.
    But now I was lucky to receive pieces of a russian winter uniform and now I want to build up a Russian fighter mannequin.

    What I have today is:
    - Quilted jacket (telogreika?)
    - Quilted trouser (watnie scharovari ?)
    - Breeches trouser
    - SSh40 helmet (post-war 1948, until I find a war-era helmet)
    - PPsh41 machine pistol + 2 drum magazines
    - RGD33 grenade

    What I still need:
    - belt
    - magazine pouch for drum magazine
    - bread bag
    - entrenching tool
    - water bottle
    - gasmask and bag
    - bag for RGD33
    - boots

    The problem is that it is very confusing to identify what is war-era and what is post-war, because equioment was produced nearly identical well into the 60ies.

    Are any collectors out there willing to share some pictures of true WW2 equipment?
    Is it ok, if I post some pictures and a lot of questions?

    Thanks and good night,

    Chris

    and here is....

    Question #1:

    as you can see, my PPSh41 has a leather carrying strap. Did these exist in WW2, or should I rather use my canvas strap?

    You need to use a canvas webbing strap.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi,
    For me, both are post-war and I think the first model presented is not of Soviet manufacture.

    Hello Philipe,
    thank you for your opinion.
    What are the most important features to identify a real ww2 pouch?
    And what is the usual value?

    Hi Chris,
    The leather is different from and two passers canvas which are generally of a different color from the ammo pouch. For the price between 15 and 35 euros.
    Regards.

    thanks !
    in the book "Europa Militaria No. 15 - The red army" I can see my second pouch (leather fixed behind canvas flap).
    Your pouch has the leather fixed onto the canvas flap.

    But I think identification has to be done by reading the stamps. Unfortunately do not know how to read them.

    It is a shame, there are hundreds of books and websites on German militaria but I cannot find any good source for Russian militaria
