Right, DAK kit's turned up and looks pretty good to my untrained eye. Nicely sewn with full insignia including cuff titles ( :happyclap: no sewing!) but I haven't tried on the pants and am worried they look a little tight. Bit of mincing won't be noticed though so should be good.

Indeed a little tight trousered mincing will fit in perfectly with any short shorts. :whistle:

Well i'm about to place an order with sof for dak tunic/trousers, but having read this viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9458 I am a little worried that if I wash my tunic/trousers that they will shrink. So I was wondering if I should order a size a few inches larger? Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks.

Simple answer - don't wash them.

There's little chance they will get muddy on site, as there is about 5% mud cover. It's mostly rock dust and clay dust, which easy comes off without washing :good:

As Steiner said no need to bother about washing them as far as I'm concerned. The scruffier you look the better you'll fit in. :lol: I'd guess Dave probably only washed his to try and fade them down a bit to look more used.

Back to helmet painting, Flame of War have just brought out base coat spray paint cans for Early/Mid and Late war armys, and this includes a can of DunkelGleb (sorry about the spelling), I got it for my FOW DAK and will bring it along to the game if anybody needs to borrow it.

I took Anthony's DAK package deal on the forum for £130 and I am very pleased with it, although I have only got half way through my sewing and glueing task. However, whilst speaking to him, it turns out he has a few DAK ankle boots for only £40, albeit only in size 9 for those with ballerina feet, unlike my own aircraft carriers :cry: .

Seeing as you are DAK too, you will be particularly welcome on the lift front
