In war even mundane tasks must be performed.

So I built a sewing machine out of bits of scrap plastic.

This WWII German soldier sits on a crate, a door is his table on top of a couple barrels, on top of a bit of styrene sheet.

The pants were downloaded from a clothing site advertisement and printed out after I shrunk them down to size.

Part of my German supply and maintenance chain.

Gained a few pounds in France, lost them at Stalingrad.

Let the pants out, take the pants in.

I can hardly believe this post. My step-dad, earlier this year, showed me his dear old mother's sewing machine. It is Luftwaffe issue...I kid you not. Never thought of doing one in 20mm though. Kudos, sir, kudos.
