View Full Version : Officer's PEAKED CAPS! DIY nightmare?

Hi guys--newbie here again. RE officer's peaked caps--have just taken delivery of the DiD Adolf: quite impressed with the authenticity of the sculpt, but the HATS ruin it. Beautifully made (can't figure HOW, either--tiny sewing machine?)--but altogether too TALL, too ROUND and too DEEP; no proper AH hat SHAPE to it, the effect is totally wrong. This question applies to ALL peaked officer's caps I suppose--what's the best way to make your own, more realistic looking? It's the most GODAWFUL shape to reproduce, and I can't see that sewing one (with piping as well) is actually possible. Anyone done any, and HOW? Got any photos? Thanks!
