A good start Kamerad :)

Obviously your boots are too flashy for your rank (but you know that).

Only other pointers I can offer is that your tunic looks big on you - they were nice a fitted at this point in the war, so you might consider a bit of tailoring if you want it bang on. There's also a bit of sewing you can do on your side cap, which although officially prohibited was done by many man to make them look more stylish.

Nice portrayal all in all though, well done!

Neil
