    Wait for more opinions, but for me, this doesn't look period made. Can you see the attachment underneath? Are there any markings on the piece?

    Colt is correct.

    100% fake. Look at his kit, goggles, flight helmet, etc. Not Luftwaffe issue.

    The faker has taken the Verlinden US Navy fighter pilot bust as a model and added a breast eagle to the life vest.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Didn't think he was very 'Aryan' looking...

    I thought that looked alot like a 'Mae West' life vest. The ear cups
    on the helmet did not look German either. Lol - The eagle had to
    be positioned low and close to the center of the bust
    to enable it to be seen !

    The 'correct' bust seems like it may represent Medal Of Honor
    recipient, USMC Col. Gregory 'Pappy' Boyington.........?
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I believe that you could well be right Steve. I have just searched a few images of him, and there seems to be a resemblance.

    Yes, the same fake. They try and add the hint of a RK at the throat, breast eagle and bogus DRGM markings.
