    Default Perfecting my reenacting tunic

    Hi guys,

    This is one of the new "texled" M40 Heer tunics from At The Front. They are supposed to be one of the best reproduction tunics available. I bought this to go with an impression I have been working on lately, which is a Heer rifleman fighting in the outskirts of Stalingrad in September/October of 1942. I want this impression to be absolutely perfect, so I would really appreciate some guidance as to what I can improve, add, get rid of, etc.

    I have attached detailed photos of the tunic itself. How does it look? Also, I purchased an 'M43' breast eagle, felgrau shoulderboards, and late litzen. How the hell do I sew the breast eagle and litzen on?!

    I have an early set sewn on another reenacting tunic of mine, an M44, which I have also included a photo of. Should I put those on the M40 instead?

    Thanks guys!
    Mo

    Hi Mo, the tunic looks fine.

    I am lucky when it comes to insignia as my Mum does it all!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade! She makes insignia for you? I'd love to see some pics of that. haha

    For a tunic used in Stalingrad in the Fall of 1942, would you recommend the early white/bottle green litzen, or the grey litzen?

    I would go with the grey litzen.

    Mum was a machinist (sewing) when she was at work. She was very good at sewing. She even restored an Infanterie Standarte for a dealer friend of mine some years ago now.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I hate sewing, mostly because if I don't get it just right then I will hate myself.
