    Mother Crosses in Gold

    I like this one, Dave. Pitty someone who really knows these crosses hasn't done an in depth study of them like Jo did with the Party badge. I've always wondered about crosses where the white enamel border is wider or almost equal in width to the blue centre. If you view your silver cross you'll note that the outer white border is narrower than the blue centre. Could that be down to individual maker, or did they also work from a master die (again like with the Party badges)? Tom

    Unknown Cap Badge?

    It is a normal Heer wreath with a plastic WHW Tag der Wehrmacht badge. They definitely do not belong together, although it does look quite cool. Tom
  3. Dave's right. Jo's book explains it all. http://bdpublish.com/The-TeNo-Ehrenzeichen Tom
  4. Hi Saber Had a looksee at Don's badge, seems to me to be the same type fake discussed in this thread. Tom
  5. I had one too, but sent it back for a refund. Tom
  6. Lovely set, Stewy! Finish on medal is fantastic, don't often find that much of the silver left. Tom
  7. Unfortunately this Osang badge is now viewed as being a fake due to the beveled edge on obverse, a trait seen only on post war manufactured badges. Thanks to Jo Rivett's book a lot of the old hype has now been debunked. Tom
  8. Mine's a bit damaged, yours is much nicer......want to swap?

    Some 1:72 Scale Models

    Some more... And my favourite, after learning more modelling techniques Tom
  13. I love 1:35 sclae, but nothing beats building in 1:72 scale if space is a problem. Hope you enjoy my simple attempts at military modelling. Excuse the old photos. Tom
