  1. Another plaque/wappen is on its way to me. From the Torpedoboot Grief. Very happy to add another one. Thanks for looking. JustinG
  2. There is a known fake for the Scharnhorst. It is known as the "Belfast" fake as it was sold nearby where the HMS Belfast resides. It has fooled many collectors. The tip with Scharnhorst tallies is that they need to be not cut (100cm or longer) in any way or made with metallic thread. The one you shown has the tell-tale sign of being a Belfast fake. I am sorry. You can search around for Belfast Scharnhorst and learn more. Best Regards, JustinG
  3. I have ordered another blacklight. Should be here in a couple of days. Is the blacklight test the only test I can perform? I have done a search on the forum. Only a couple of topics show the Eagle Squadron eagle. and none are free from a uniform tunic, so the reverse is unable to be verified. I purchased this recently from Barry Turk at emedals.com. I have had good luck with them in the past. I would love to hear other methods as well. I will share the blacklight results when the blacklight arrives from Amazon. Thank you for your time in this matter. Best Regards, JustinG
  4. Greetings Gentlemen, I recently acquired what I feel is lovely Eagle Squadron insignia. I would love to hear your opinions on this piece. I thank you for your time. Best Regards, JustinG
  5. I have also added the Kreuzer Blücher wappen to my collection. I feel very fortunate to add this one.
  6. Rombak, That is a great grouping. I haven't seen a print of the painting shown in post 483 before with the destroyer hit heading for the shoreline under fire I assume from a battery. Gorgeous groupings. I achieved my goal and have successfully completed my complete Zerstörer Mützenband collection with the Anton Schmitt. This includes the 10 at Narvik (22 total named ship tallies) So, I thought I would share this rare beauty.
  7. Thanks Morten. I wanted to share, I was able to acquire one of the rarest and elusive Mützenaband. The Zerstörer Anton Schmitt. This tally gives me every named destroyer for the Kriegsmarine. Thanks for looking.
  8. Here is an interesting one. I just took this in Chicago at the Museum of Science and industry. I found it interesting that this submariner also wore the Hilfskreuzer badge. Photo is from the Museum of Science and Industry. Picture is so poorly taken, it doesn't need a watermark. LOL! Regards, JustinG
  9. My completed Schnellboote fleet. Thanks for looking. JustinG 2dresq
  10. Surviving the Bismarck's only voyage and the attack from the HMS Hood and Prince of Wales. She was a lucky ship but she was also a troubled ship. Crashing into the Kreuzer Leipzig and having it's stern blasted off by the HMS Trident's torpedo. It also participated among the ships of Operation Cerberus. Would love to see the official report from the Leipzig and the Eugen captains explaining the actions that took place during this collision. Regards, JustinG
  11. My latest purchase. Kreuzer Prinz Eugen Wappen. I am so very happy to have this coming my way. Thanks for looking. 2dresq JustinG
  12. AH Storm Troop items and photo's

    Here is some art I created using two Sturmtrupp badges in my collection. Hope you like. Regards, 2dresq
  13. Kriegsmarine Muetzenband / Tallies
  14. Greetings, I was curious and unsuccessful in my research. I am trying to find out what the most successful (highest total of downed enemy aircraft) for a Allied BOMBER? We all know the fighter counts and such, I was curious about the men in the bombers and their successes. I look forward to your responses. Regards, Justin
