Looks great! The replaced buttons are not a huge deal, it looks like you did a good job on them. Good 'plane jane' M43 tunics are not always easy to find!!

Regards,
Steve

I'm sure he means plain Jane, that is: unembellished, "as issued".

Thank-you Werner!

Ref 'Plain Jane' - just a play on the sometimes used term for a "no frills" no-decal M42 helmet, was just extending the term for a 'no frills' EM tunic with minimalist insignia etc.

From this link:-

https://www.collinsdictionary.com/di...ish/plain-jane

ADJECTIVE Informal
1. plain, drab, dull, etc.
plain-Jane looks
2. basic or simple; ordinary; unremarkable

Thank-you Ian!

Great websites you have there by the way.

Werner - no worries. I have a similar problem when I visit German Forums!
