I find WPG not bad, the last set where s***e...Really thin, and the two pairs are slightly different in shade to the originals...they also don't really ~"sit" that great...Could have been better...I don't really like wearing them, not because I am snobby about it, just that they don't sit right for me, and as I have already trashed a an orignal pair going up La Difensa, I will look after my others, save them for living history, and use the repro for field...

By the way, if you are thinking of doing FSSF, you might want to consider our website ...

Hi FAAA,
So far i have the WW2 Impressions sidecap with their piping on which is excellent. Hopefully soon i will have enough stuff to do 1 SSF properly but it is coming on nicely at the moment,
cheers Tim


I hope you are not intending to do your FSSF impression with any hat piping other than the RED WHITE and BLUE peculiar to the Force?...If you are, would look s***e...Also, you would need the corrcet crossed arrows collar discs, lanyard, and oval (optional)....
