Viktor - nice pick of you, Rory and others. Makes me wish I was still part of it. Small crtitique if I may, don't go heavy on the neckchiefs and the webbing Y-straps. Looks better without and was more to the "norm".

All the best with the new group.

Maybe the neckcheif wasn't worn very often by the Werhmacht but i would say the
webbing was during late War, i always think its good to have a mix of equipment when
portraying late War it adds to the late War look imho, as by this point equipment was in
short supply as everybody knows, and soldiers would wear whatever was available
Maybe the old sweats would wear the leather equipment but the youngsters coming to
the front would be issued whatever was in stock, just my two cents :wink:

Got to be honest, the stock not being folded out and it not being fired from the shoulder lets an otherwise good image down..

Picture taken 2 weeks ago during a Historic promenade in a Belgian Village.
I was portraying a Panzergrenadier Gefreiter of the 2nd Panzer Div.

I know I will be off topic a bit, but here is a link to my first Wochenschau type video... shot with a time period film camera using B&W 16 mm film, camera is 1926 American Bell&Howell Filmo 70a. The video is first version I intend to improve the credit screen at the beginning:
