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.

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.
