    Default WW2 German field phone with camouflage

    Hi, everyone!
    Last week I obtained this german field phone with interesting camouflage. I have never seen this kind of phone "tuning". What do you think about that? Is there a chance that camouflage is original from war years? Of course the phone was used after war in the czechoslovak army, according to the nameplate with czechoslovak code names.
    Thanks for useful comments.

    Hi, im sorry to say but the camo job is post war made.
    And seems recent.

    Cheers

    Not sure why one would want to camouflage the insides?????? ( maybe to use up some plastic modelling paint?)

    Yes, the code plate has been replaced. A quick check confirms it is Czech - most likely pressed into service as a captured piece in war time or just post war. The camo paint is very odd and most likely a bit of fantasy added later. The only kind of painted motifs I have seen on phones include some kind of unit ID and "Der Feind hoert mit." NH
