Hi,

I am relatively new to this forum and want to start of by posting a couple of my favorite uniforms.

I collect LW uniforms and insignia(collar tabs). I have been collecting for several years. I look forward to learning from the experienced members of this forum.

Paul,great looking uniforms.I've come across several Luftwaffe uniforms lately.I wonder if more people are getting interested in them.I've still haven't picked up a fligerblouse yet,although I've wanted one for quite some time.Looking forward to seeing more of your collection and learning more about tunic in general.

I hope that people are not getting TOO interested in them! Wink

Although I have noticed a sharp increasing in pricing recently!

Thank you for your kind words Raymond! I guess that what attracts me most to them is the manner in which the waffenfarbe is displayed on the tunic! I also have a modest collection of the collar tabs.

I would be interested in seeing other Luftwaffe tunics that are out there. Please post yours!

Regards
Paul

Paul, I took photos of the 4 tunics I have.As usual they didn't come out that good.They looked good on the camera but on the computer screen they are dark.One of these days I will learn to take "JR quality" photos.
First is a Feldwebel with pants.

Raymond, great tunics! Especially like the HBT! But I love the term "britches" reminds me of my Pop! Know anything about Luft '43 caps? If so, I'll post mine. Regards

Raymond,

Thanks for posting your tunics! I am considering opening a thread on tabs! I cannot seem to get enough of them! I must have them all!!! Of all of your tunics, I am most especially keen on the Flak grouping! That tunic seems to be untouched and in awesome shape!

Your HBT tunic seems to have had all of it's insignia applied post war, except the eagle. Collar tabs were not worn on these tunics. Despite this, I have some possibly great news about them... the shoulder boards seem to be the ULTRA rare straps used on LW blue shirts! Please have these authenticated as I have only seen one other single board in my entire life!

The attached photo is a portion of your tab photo. The tab on the far left seems to be a very rare Air Traffic Controller Feldwebel. Can you please post a close up?(air traffic controller had a light green waffenfarbe versus the dark green waffenfarbe worn by the Administrative section).

Leipzig,

I only have one LW M43, that is pictured with the flight Fliegerbluse. If you would like some additional photos, please do not hesitate to ask.

Regards
PaulR

I will look forward to it. Please post it in the Luftwaffe tabs thread that I am starting! I am now convinced that you have an Air Traffic Controller tab! Nice!

Now we are cooking with fire!!! Juan! It is great to see you here! That is a spectacular set up. That double decal helmet is definately an appropriate match with the droop tail eagle on the flieger. Very attractive grouping! What shield is that? Can you please post a close up?

Bob,

That is a stunning GenLt tunic!!! Can we please see some close ups of the tabs and boards? I love shiney things!! Also, can you please post a close up of that awesome ribbon bar?

Are either of these tunics named or attributed?

Thanks for sharing and lets keep these tunics coming!!
