Thanks mate can't wait to meet all the 9th soon, looking forward to Saturday. I will not have the K98 back in time so it's the MP40.

Variety is the key to an authentic-looking unit, IMHO. :wink:

The dot 44 must work. I had mine on this Saturday and I heard two from the other side shouting, over there with the camo on and the other shouting where, this exchange went on for a few more minites before I then moved to a better shooting point. With the leaves on the ground and the thin trees it does look good and blends in well. Far better than DPM and that american BDU, they stuck out like a boil on the face.

John M wrote:Yeah, I think a few of us already have a dot 44 uniform in addition to the Feldgrau's. I may yet wear mine at Op. Lightning as I can't really use them at Die Glocke or Op. Aerial. To be honest I much prefer it to Feldgrau anyway. Roll on the MP44 for that really late war look! :D


Don't forget you'll have my much more Gucci Dot44 set to wear at Lightning John! :good:

I have to say Pete's blurred edge smock was really effective camo l - can't remember who bought it - I would've done myself, but I'd already got the dot44 tunic.

I like going for the 'made in the field look' given my age (!) i feel its entirely appropriate... the gebirgjager type smock is nice though... i have an oak a one and i use it pretty much all the time when i go to open days and im not wearing my strichtarn...

Blurred edge is my favourite pattern, looks cool and works well. :D If you're after one I once again recommend Pikestaffs- smock & cover for £50. :good:
