M 43 Field Cap (Einheitsfeldmütze 1943)
This is my first try on Customizing the Uniform, so I picked something relatively easy like this Field Cap.
The official Field Cap was adaped June 11th 1943 and found it's origin in the Afrika Korps.
I didn't take the time to scale it to 1/6 scale (tried that first, but after taking the dimensions it didn't fit correctly on the head.) but I just took a pair of scissors and started working.
The deaths-head and eagle are from the same site as I took the insignia of the handgrenades http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~cn4j-mti/Decal/Decal_Fcap.html and are printed on a HP Deskjet on adhesive paper.
Here the front view of how it looks on the Cotswold Waffen SS Soldier.
Instead of sewing it , I just took superglue, and glued it together :o)
