The insignias are made specifically for our store and bear the Replika logo. They have perfect details, no distortion of the shape (as sometimes happens with bad copies), and nuances of embroidery are replicated. We have been creating copies of the insignia for many years, and they are appreciated by reenactors all over the world.

The eagle is woven with a dirty white (not snow-white) thread on a black background (for Panzer uniforms). Snow-white thread does not give the right effect, so we used a dull white color, which gives the appropriate shade on the finished uniform piece.

The set for the side-cap consists of two parts: an eagle and a cockade. Colors of the badge: black, white, red. The insignias for the tankers' uniforms were issued during the entire war without changes.

How to sew the patch?

There are 2 ways.

I. Method for museum copies. Trim the excess along the contour of the insignia with a margin of 5 mm. Tuck these 5 mm under the insignia and iron (you may use glue). Fasten the stripe on the clothes with a few stitches of threads of bright color, so it sits smoothly. Sew the stripe along the contour with small stitches (seam around the edge). Remove the bright thread that fixed the insignia.

II. Way to for reenactment (easier). Remove threads from the inside of the stripe using the scissors or razor to make it thinner. Glue the patch onto thin paper or fabric using tailor's glue or PVA. Dry it using an iron (if the glue is liquid then you should use as little glue as possible, otherwise it can leak on the front side). Cut the patch along the contour with no margin. Fasten the stripe on the clothes with a few stitches of threads of bright color, so it sits smoothly. Sew the stripe along the contour with small stitches (seam around the edge). Remove the bright thread that fixed the insignia.
