Here again present my previous self made cap. Actually this is not a new thread. I just replaced an eagle and badge, added a saw shark symbol on side, and did some weathering.

Thank you for browsing.

William









The one in the front left was my first self made badge.

Very nice indeed!!! like the dead flat color on the beak showing it is a cloth covered beak over leather or Vulcan fiber. The little details you employed really brings this KM cap to live. If someone wasn't told it was 1/6th they would assume it was a real one..... congrats

sorry my englisch is not good

would revise the cord again still a very nice hat here is my Chief Engineer Officer

The style of the caps with blue or white top was the same. However, for practical reasons, white caps with solid uppers, were rarely made . The round cap lid had a diameter of 28.5 cm in size 57. The four equally long side parts were the front and rear 6.5 cm 5.5 cm connected high and front, side and rear with vertical seams. Intermediate cover and side panels, a 2 mm wide foray ("piping") was sewn from cloth cover. In front of the lid part was through a cotton layer and a double layer Steifgaze stiffened. In the lid rim inside a held together by a metal sleeve metal bracket was inserted, which should keep the lid in the form, however, was mostly removed. The cap height was 12 cm forward.The one with a blue background cloth-related, 5.3 cm wide cap edge was reinforced with fabric or a piece of cardboard. On the edge was a 4 cm wide black mohair band with front seam in extension of the side panel seam. The strip was between two advances of base cloth abutted its lower edge and the lower edge of the upper joined immediately above the band. The top was sewn just above the upper thrust.
The cap was lined with mostly light blue silk or rayon, and with a thin deposit of white gauze between forage and cover. In the middle of the cap was inside the diamond-shaped weld plate from glashellem celluloid (celluloid) was quilted, which had the gold-colored imprint of the manufacturer, the company's brand and the size usually. A stitched seams by two specialist served for receiving a name strip.
The approximately 3.5 cm wide sweatband brown leather inside was sewn to the lower edge and rear stitched or glued and often adorned with a loop of a narrow, white silk ribbon.
The 25 cm long and 5 cm wide in the middle screen in black lacquered vulcanized fiber had sewn a narrow edging of a black lacquered leather straps and was at the lower edge of cap. Chance is a black patent leather screen without finding edging. The bottom was mostly black, rare brown.
With Vfg.v. 13.5.1936 ", effective 01.07.1936 was substituted for officers of the leather shield with a gold embroidered umbrella. This consisted of synthetic leather or a similar material and was covered up with blue bunting and bottom with a thin, black leather. Embroidery attached himself to the narrow, black lacquered leather trim on. width of the screen in the middle for lieutenants and captains lieutenants 5.4 cm, for staff officers and admirals 5.6 cm. embroidery of gold thread or gold yellow Celleonfäden was for officers to Lieutenant including as well as music master to bar music Master a 7 mm broad, inwardly truncated (round) jagged stripes, for staff officers and Musikinspizienten a 1.8 cm wide oak leaf tendril and for admirals and Commodore a double oak leaf tendril, with the arc of the rear Ranke was flatter. Both halves of the tendrils touch in the middle of almost . officials Portepeeunteroffiziere, Upper cadets, midshipmen and cadets kept the black screen unchanged. Interesting is the reasoning in the introduction available: The introduction of embroidery had become "necessary" because "the officer be as military commander already early on," had, and because "in view of the Foreign Service who in foreign navies provided for officers cap embroidery had also shown for the German naval officer be the most appropriate. " The chinstrap could "not be replaced by the army ... established cord," because he "proved to be useful in-flight services" had.
