    Hi all
    hope you don't mind me posting this here as well as separately!!! forgot about this thread!! opps!!!
    Just received my newest acquisition... its a BGS M53 (M35 style) bought it off eBay but the photos only showed the outside..so I was made up when it arrived with nice soldier named markings, Ralf Becker, R.B. !!! I've added a genuine BGS opfor reversible (yellow, red) band, an unissued BGS thick "cargo" Tarn net and a BGS sumpftarn parka hood as a camo cover. I have some BGS ammo pouches, belt and a "Y" strap somewhere and will post em up when I find them!!

    Austromunga, great original addition to your BGS collection, just the thing those BGS troopers did with their hoods
    Looks great !
    Please post your other BGS items............
    Prost ! Steve.

    looks like the canteen & mess kit have been repainted flat black? I see a little green paint around the edge of the lid.

    The canteen and water canteen are as I got them ... Sold as mint unissued from New unissued old stock in a Matt dark grey...THW perhaps!!??? the leather strap was stored in the cup lid and had never even been opened!!! The new leather smell released as I opened the lid was amazing!!!
