    Hi Nap!

    These lanyards existed in nine different stages ("Stufen") and in gold.

    Here they all as worn by the Luftwaffe...:

    Flipping Heck mate!...That really is "de book" on the subject, I didn't know there was such an in depth range for these WW11 German awards, (not like our lot with just a pair of brass crossed rifles on the sleeve,) I reckon the added lanyard really balances the figure out now (y)
    Cheers

    Very nice update Nap, I bet Carole was pleased with her effort. I hope she had a cuppa as well as a spare biscuit that you saved.
    This is looking very good and as Jimbo said the lanyard balances the whole thing.

    Hi Chris

    Thanks for posting , I am pleased with the ribbons as always they look better when not in iffyvision !!!

    Now completed the Para Badge and the Ground Combat badge ( you saw just a quick base wash as were the others !!!)

    Will finish the Sports and Wound awards off and post a picture !!

    After that will probably be the Marksman lanyard then the cuff titles

    Happy benchtime

    One thing I did notice (if you don't mind me mentioning it) is that the thin black stripe down the centre of the Eastern Front 1941-42 ribbon is missing......
    Apart from that, the ribbon bar looks excellent!
