Here are some first impressions of my new assault gun crew uniform, helmet, gaiters and ankle boots, all locally sourced. Ares PPS-h 'captured' firearm. Far from complete, but it's a start, right? Pardon the non-regulation Calvin Klein belt, heh heh.
Thanks to my ever-supportive wife, Sheryl, for the wonderful photographs. It's the first time for me to wear this uniform, and, as Albert said, it's strangely empowering in a half-cool, half extremely silly sort of way. I was dehydrated after the mid-morning shoot (on our garage roof no less) but a few cold biers help assuage the thirst.
jojo can fix you up with a pair. i've got the pebbled buttons you need. the jacket front doesn't seem to overlap as much as it ought to, though. The cut and length do look spot on. specially the trousers.
Did the neighbors take cover when they saw you on the roof?
This was shot on our balcony and garage roof because the neighbor's firewall seemed a good backdrop. Nobody looked up from the street, except for a little girl walking with her mom. The expression on her face when she saw me on the roof was priceless!
Wow, the pictures look great! You're off to a good start, too. PPSH definitely fits. Though i'm not sure if cigars were popular with the germans...maybe a pipe? Great to have another landser to fight along side with.

Aaaah...yes, people's reaction to our passion is always the best. When they see us in our WW2 loadouts and seeing the reaction on their faces completes the feeling of accomplishment and furthers the missing element in it. Poor girl, she must have thought that there's a German soldier on her neighborhood that is out to get her. .. hehe... You should have taken a shot at her with your zoom lens to complete the whole picture...:-)

louiejo1: I have designed and built a pretty faithful reproduction of the WW2 Japanese Type 89 Knee mortar for airsoft use. I takes standard 40mm gas grenades and has an effective range when held at a 45 degree angle of 120-130 ft.
