Very nice interwar impression. Reproductions are excellent.
I am not so sure about the air-force pilot insignia for this uniform and the Trupele de Geniu insignia, the latter may be communist period, but I am not 100% sure.

Thanks Ionescu.

The pilot badge was just a fun piece I wanted to try to reproduce.
It will have to leave the impression latest next week. The reason is something pretty nice, original to period and fitting to the overall impression will replace this space. ;)

Can hardly wait till I get it.


About the badge "Trupele de Geniu" I'm too not yet sure if it fits.
I tried to find out more about it and from which period it is exactly, but no break trough yet.
When I look how it's made and constructed it could be period.
Have to search more about anyway.

Greetings
Robert

Yes the ribbons are all reproductions.
The red with yellow is for the order "Mihail Viteazul".
As the color isn't really as it should be, wine red with gold,
i replaced it all ready with another much better reproduction.

Thanks for the clarification. I can understand why you have replaced that ribbon.

As a collector of Romanian medals it is not easy to find replacement ribbons here in the U.K.. Would you be able to let me know where I can buy them in Romania?

You could send me a private message if you prefer.

Regards - Alan

Thanks.

Replacement MV ribbon looks much better.

I see a new 2nd row of ribbons has been added. I recognise the Order of Queen Marie on the right but what are the 2 on the left please?

The aviator badge had to leave the impression.
It got replaced with the badge I was searching for since a long time. :D

Last year a friend of mine was in Trencin-Slowakia at a Tank-Meet.
We decided to go together this year in mid june.
Laugaricio Tank Meet

As my friend doesn't have a uniform i contacted again Dragos Diaconu to make one for him.
This time a officers uniform for Vanatorii de Munte.

This was the sheet i provided to Mr.Diaconu:

Epoletii

The big Buttons are original.
As the buttons are extremely difficult to come by Mr.Diaconu made a mould for the small buttons and made them out of Resin.

Again have to say i'm very pleased how the uniform came out.
What remains is to "fresh it up" a bit with some ribbons and officers brevet insignia.


Any comments welcome.

Greetings
Robert

Talking about reenactment in Romania. I recently joined "Military Tradition" Association because I like this kind of events, despite the fact I'm only 16, and I want to get my first uniform soon.
I was talking to a colleague from another forum who lives in Russia. Two weeks ago, he said that he was involved in a huge reenactment at the border with Minsk. According to I'm, at this event took part a few thousand actors, with dousins of vehicles (tanks, armoured cars, artillery and even planes). I was wondering why we can not do something similar here in Romania. Usually, our spectacles are resumed to 10-20 soldiers in total, rarely having a cannon or a car. But I guess we just do not have enough members in Romania. Other chance would have been if there was a large international festival in our country.
Otherwise, why can we not have a large scale reenaction here?
