The top is a repro that I managed to score off ebay for $16. The bottoms are from my Russian snow-suit. If you are looking for a good deal on winter camo, Hessen antique has Italian snow suits on sale right now for $9. If you take the ties off and add four buttons down the front, it should look just like the one I am wearing.

So I haven't posted for a while, since my last 'impression' pictures, I joined Das Reich UK and got a lot of gear (with their help), no more Post-war sub-standard crap for me.
I am far from finished but I am really close, I am waiting for my original late-war jackboots to come in (payed £20 for them! Lol, deal of the year) and my SS Schütze insignia. I still need to repaint my 'SS' stahlhelm the correct feldgrau colour, but overall, everything looks and fits great. I'm going to upload a picture of all my gear tommorow (when my jackboots arrive) as this picture is only my SS EM barracks gear.
So far I have:
An M40 tunic, M40 trousers, Mouse Grey field shirt, Modified NVA suspenders, Original WW2 Heer jackboots, EM buckle and belt, 2 Kar98 pouches, German WW2 y-straps, Khaki M31 breadbag, Modified post-war messtin, Plastic replica, modified canteen, NVA e-tool and carrier, M35? Stahlhelm replica (needs repainting), M43 cap (for late-war events) Dot 44 tunic (for summer/late-war events) and some original personal gear (matches, scarf, Esbit stove, gloves, mask, etc).
Here is a shot I found from the Rockford WWII days reenactment this fall. While not an airsoft event, it shows me and some others, who are also starting up a WWII airsoft group, in our Italian impressions. We are portraying the 63 Legione Tagliamento on the Russian front for the eastern front battle, the guy in the foreground is portraying an alpini ski unit the "Monte Cervino":

Awesome pic of awesome impressions. I would have to imagine that Italians drew their share of friendly fire while serving on the Ostfront-- from a distance that helmet profile could easily fool someone into thinking you were Ivans.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
