Tropical tunic

Hello to all,

I recived few days ago that tropical 1.model tunic. I am working on to find the way to remove the paint becouse I am planing to restore it.
The second is, all insignias were remuved. As there is so many types of them, I realy looking for some pictures of insigniar which metch this type of tunic.
If someone has some of the insignias to sell, I will be hapy to buy it.

Re: Tropical tunic

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Nice original tunic. Any visible markings inside?

Unfortunately i can't help you with info on the paint removal. Maybe another member can assist you.

As for insignia you will need a pair of tropical Litzen:

A first pattern eagle:

A pair of shoulder straps:

Re: Tropical tunic

All these will cost more than 1000 euros depending on the branch of service that your shoulder straps will have and if it's a matching pair.

At least this is the total i would expect to see for insignia coming from the internet.

If you have sources to find directly from the German market then you will save a lot of money.

Re: Tropical tunic

There I found some of the items... eagle is on the way smile
Need your opinion aboth the litzen and chevron. Litzen taken of the tunic are in prity bad shape (maybe even bettrer for that tunic), the next one are too nice by my opinion (I doubt also are the right one or not..colours are not as they should be)...

Re: Tropical tunic

Yes the chevron and Litzen look original from the pictures provided.

The mint pair is not correct for a tropical impression. Go for the salty pair although it will be very difficult to apply them on the collar.
