            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!!

                  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.

                            Thank-you Ian!

                            Great websites you have there by the way.

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