    NSDAP Eagle Restoration.

    Both Eagles now resprayed and mounted on their marble towers. Delighted to have finally finished them and to have given them a new lease of life.

    The different colours are clearly shown here. The darker colour is nearer to what I believe is it's original shade. Some more work needed on it's feet and then I'll see what the final colour should be?

    NSDAP Eagle Restoration.

    Started on the darker eagle now and have cut a few corners here and there. The dark paint is wrong and in some places it has started to peel off. Two of it's talons have broken off and there was a big crack on one of it's wings. Now sorted, although I still have to do some more work on it's feet. Gave it a good rub down all over, primered it up and give it a coat of gold paint.
  5. A few holes here and there, but still in a good condition.

    A good rub down with scotch brite pad, the eagle is given it's new paint. The colour is wrong for this eagle, it needs to be a lot darker, so I'll use these first coats as a base coat. I'll get some more paint mixed soon. Considering the poor state it was in, being bashed about for years, I think the repairs have come out well..

    It was in a too bad of state Rich, it was crumbling and falling apart.. it needed help. Finally some gold paint applied, rubbed down and being made ready for a coat all over.

    Some more work done.. Finally got some primer on one side and more filler on the other. It's been hard to build up the "missing" edges of the wings, but at last some progress.
  11. Here you go Rich..
  12. More pictures.
  13. Lovely female DRP Beret in Navy Blue colour with Orange wool piping. A machine woven national Eagle machine is stitched to the cap front. Some bits of the Alkor sweatband are missing but over all the beret is in super conditon.

    Russian Helmet

    Here it is now finished. Minimal work done, a good clean up and the result is just what I wanted. Should now last a bit longer..
  15. I think is cap is for female postal workers. Winter service cap (Baschlikmutzen). A dark navy blue wool construction Bergmütze with orange rayon piping around the top crown. 1936 pattern aluminum eagle and metal cockade to the front. The cap is fully lined in quilted grey rayon with full insulation for cold weather conditions. Leather sweatband is complete. Size marked 57. The lady top left, I believe is wearing this style of cap.
