    Default 2nd Pattern Tropical Tunic

    My first tunic so obviously I'm posting it everywhere in cyberspace and boring everyone to death! I've been told that all the insignia have probably been replaced but that doesn't really bother me. The faded mustardy yellow colour is very nice, much better in real life.

    And why not Ben I like the faded look.

    Looks great. I would maybe only replace the eagle with one a little more worn to make it more in keeping with the rest of the tunic.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello Ben,
    That's a nice and worn Troppen Feldbluse. Congrats for you first purchase. I agree that breast eagle and tabs are most probably replaced. Aren't shoulderstraps Luftwaffe Nachrichten ?
    A bust and a well worn tropical belt/buckle would make a nice addition to this tunic.
    Thanks

    Greetings BenVK,

    Absolutely excellent tunic. I am looking for one just like it. It doeslook like all of the insignia have been replaced and the boards are luft. I have a full set of fieldgear for this guy.

    Nice pick up.

    My pleasure Steve.

    Thanks for all the comments so far. Yes, the boards are Luft ones or so I've been told.

    Definitely Luftwaffe boards Ben, but a splendid looking tunic. I don't mind the tan tunics. Very nice ebay pickup (I told you that I wasn't going to bid).

    Bumping this old thread. Ben that is an awesome tunic. What happened with the boards? Did you replace them with Heer ones or have you sold the whole thing in the meantime?
