At the moment I am just planning on cutting up one of the tunics.  If I get enough spare fabric from it I may even try to make a m43 cap with the extra if I have enough.  At the very least I will have enough for four tunics total.

Almost done with the first tunic.  Four pockets sewed on, shortened the collar, shortened the tunic, and sewed on the collar litzen.  All I have left to do is to repaint the buttons and sew them on, sew on the shoulderboards, and sew on the breast eagle.  Here is what it looks like so far:

Final update.  The tunic is now complete.  I added the insignia and made an oberschutze badge to give it a little personality.  Here are the final pics:

I think that is a nice solution for an extra tunic for newcomers.  Good work.  :)

Another one done.  This time a m42.  I think for the rest I will be doing m43's since they are easier to do.  Here is the final result:

You know, these, with a bit of work, could probably work as WWI German blouses as well...if you ever get into that.

When searching for options on what I could do with these, I actually saw a few groups who did just that.  However, like you said, it would require quite a bit of work.
