My collection of tropical/DAK equipment

Today I managed to take pictures of all my tropical gear.

You will see my tan sprayed M40 luftwaffe with a green painted cross on top and a M42 ND with a more pink collar to it. The helmets is displayed with my tropical painted gas mask and three MG34/42 ammo cases.

Hope you enjoy


Cheers
Alex

Re: My collection of tropical/DAK equipment

Wow friend, these are outstanding camo items.

I like the way you display them.

I couldn't help but notice that the tan M40 LW is another from the one you used to have (size 60)? And what happened to the rest tan camo helmets? Sold?

Re: My collection of tropical/DAK equipment

The M42 is awesome too. I would prefer it without the green paint in order to have the full desert camo color shown tongue

We all have our own taste and I personally have a hard time deciding whether I am a “Tan man” or if I prefer multiple collars. Lately I have bought more collar full pieces in order to improve my Normandy display. -Which is the answer to your question Chris.. (Where did they all go). We can’t keep them all right... Unfortunately :- )

I would love more details about the camo helmet please

I got the M40 luft helmet about a half year ago but I still haven't found time to take pictures of it in details. I promise to post it once I have done so.

Attached are some of pictures of the Normandy display.

Wish you all a great weekend!

Cheers
Alex

Re: My collection of tropical/DAK equipment

I know what you mean mate. Unfortunately it's true.

We can't keep them all.

If you still have the photos of the "flown away" tropical helmets please post a few.

Re: My collection of tropical/DAK equipment

Haha, yeah it really makes a good display to put such a helmet in an area where it fade in..

I took these pictures at a place called Raabjerg Mile in northern Denmark. It is our only "dessert" here and it is only a size at about 1 km² big_smile

Cool Alex. It's so weird to have that piece of desert land. It is surrounded by green fields, hills and the sea is so near but in the middle ..... a desert hmm strange cool
