    Dirty Little Hessen Feld Arty No. 25 !

    Thanks for that Brian, now I see how it works. You say it is unique so I'm guessing you have not seen any similar examples from other States.

    Dirty Little Hessen Feld Arty No. 25 !

    Wonderful transformation Brian, been AFK for quite a while and hadn't completely followed this process. Can you please clarify a point about the rear spine? First, I hadn't realised that 'false' exterior dome heads were sometimes used with concealed split brads to give the outward appearance of...

    First attempt at a helmet restoration

    "what kind of brute forces a wappen into the shell?! takes a lot of strength!" --A Gorilla with an eye for profit?? Steve, good solid job on the skull. Brass normally takes well to annealing (been there, done that) BUT 100 year old brass? Personally I would give it a go, with my heart in my...

    Enlisted wappen, with Waterloo bandeau.

    Well done Coert, a little treasure, I am jealous!

    Also true Lars, shameful things from the relatively recent past done in our name by our politicians with their own spurious agenda shame us as well as them, but there can be no excuse for the kind of random savagery we are seeing now - it should be called out whomever perpetrates it, and...

    You are right Coert, the evidence is that they deceitfully call their WAR a "Special Operation" - demonstrating that they can't even be honest with their own people, let alone the rest of the World. Sorry if my opinions are overtly political Brian, I know this Forum is not really the place for...

    Volodymyr Zelensky is a President worthy of the name, unlike some we could all mention. Finally, the World sees a politician who not only does his job but also tells it like it REALLY is.
