Great examples of the Dutch DPM covers James, I would like to source the Desert 3 colour version to add to my own similar covers
Hi Camo collectors ,here's one of my favourite Warsaw Pact Raindrop patterns, I particularly like the Czech Vz-60 Jehlicí pattern as the underside of the pattern is very unique.
Here is the pattern under IR light courtesy of henrikc Vz 60 - Camo
very nice set opex ,i agree on the czech needle pattern as being one of the best of this genre ,it makes the nva version quite bland , the jacket looks a very early one ,do my eyes see a 1964 date next to the crossed swords acceptance stamp and the ir photo looks amazing ,thanks for sharing
( it's a bit faded to make out) the only let down is that it is a Woman's version as it has no exterior chest pockets, and the buttons are sewn on the opposite position compared to a male jacket, but I really like the pattern so I can deal with this small issue.
I found the IR picture whilst doing some research, and thought it would be good to share the pictures/site here. The pattern under IR is amazing !!
Thanks again buddy
BTW-Have you any more cool Austrian Pea Pattern items to update here, I would love to see them
hi opex to be honest i didnt realise the jacket was for a women but still looks superb mate ,but now you mention it i have seen czech needle pattern skirts on sale from time to time if i could convince myself they were more like an eastern block version of the kilt i might be tempted ,as for the austrian camo ive picked up a few pieces ,i must give a huge thanks to mark k for the trousers though its bringing my display closer to fruition ,and seeing as you ask so nicely here is a rough idea ,please excuse the nva belt and czech boots though they are just gap fillers and also the war room is a bit of a mess
Many Thanx James I know they have gone to a good home were they are appreciated.
Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
