    A superb display

    What would be the weapon of choice in the holster?

    Hello Woolgar,

    Thanks for your comment. The Nagant would fit nicely. Therfore I am wondering if tank crew weren't mostly using Tokarev… To be checked.

    Have a happy end of the year

    how do you get the arms through the tunics?

    It will depend on your diplay.
    If using a modern one, I would of course suggest to enter the arms first and then fix them on the display.

    In my case, I was using an old one from the 30s-40s. The advantage is that they are smaller than the current ones. The heads can be taken off so I start with the arms (from the front), put them up and then slip the gym on the display.
    Check the size before to make sur it fits (and that you will also be in a position to take it off after

    Hope it helps

    Will be a nice display

    Therefor with a french tunic, shouldn't you have the blue galyphe?

    That would definitively make it easier

    Nice project, I look forward to see it.
