Belts (Posted 19th April 2013)

Added the cross strap and russian pistol holster (though the holster needs dying). I've had the main belt made from matching leather with the right buckle to a custome width.

Buttons and gubbins (Posted 6th April 2013)

Shoulder boards, rank insignia and buttons. All authentic russian military uniform gear to complete the greatcoat.
