Hi Friends there are some my new photos in WH uniform :

Bread bag with canteen in brown cloth and gray mess tin with strap. Present the shovel and the bayonet in their traditional cases. Helmet m40 feldgrau.
The armament consists of rifle mauser k98 and stielgranate. Boots standard. I haven't used the zeltbahn.

Awesome looking kit.
I myself don't 'do' military stuff. But is there anyway to dirty it up a bit without it looking messy?
You know those scenes in war films when the 'new kid' arrives in his pristine pressed fresh uniform - kinda reminds me of that a little?

A good basic impression! Well done! I have a few suggestions, nothing major though so don't get worried.

1, put your bayonet into the scabbard eagles head facing forward, think of the pommel as a birds head with the curved part forming the beak and the button the eye. Have the beak pointing towards your front!

2, use the strap that holds the e-tool in place to wrap around the bayonet scabbard also, this will stop them banging together and making noise!

3, put the left loop of the breadbag on the left hand side of the rear y-strap, strap, this will stop your breadbag from sliding around on your belt in combat!

Some time in future need to invest in a pair of leather sole marschstiefel. Your Infanteriesturm abzeichen looks low unless you have EKI in prime centre spot on breast pocket, may need to adjust it (pic shown of my orig M43) acordingly kamerade. Good to see both feldflasche and kochgeschirr on correct side easier to reach water canteen when needed. I hope you fill canteen and not leave it empty like we see at times, may I suggest also putting some bulky stuff in Brotbeutel like spare socks with your spare ammo, rifle cleaning kit, rations as choice is yours, looks better as breadbag was prime bag for carrying personal items in the field. Your back strap on your Y straps needs adjusting so the bottom hook fits bottom of the belt, D rings were never worn in such this way, only at front if wearing pistol holster or mekdungs tasche eyc... This is just an observation Kamerad.

Many books out there, uniforms and traditions volume 3 shows how to wear equipment or a period Reibert book that was created for the german soldier (if you can read german that is hehe).

It takes time, took me years to find decent pair marschstiefel, was lucky to find originals in great condition in size 10. Mind they were painful to wear first few times walking into some old sweats foot print lol

Watching wochenshau's, weekly newsreels is great way picking up alot information. I have some including frontshau instructional shown to NCO's on correct feldausbildung (fieldcraft). Sent PM

The D rings were worn this way. I'll dig up some photos if I get the chance. One thing it does is it shifts the Y strap loops higher onto the shoulders and can help with load carrying with the A frame or rucksack.
It is also a quick fix for moving from MP40/44 pouches to rifle pouches. Saves time in not having to adjust the straps.
There are English translations of Reibert available. Still not native tongue for Felddivision but might help him.

Rubber soled NVA regular conscript boots are a bit obvious.

As a stand in for years i used slightly post war west german jackboots (i think they may have been for parade or tank crews, not sure).

Anyway they are all leather with leather soles and a 'horse shoe' reenforcement on the heel. They dont have hobnails as standard but have a glued on thin rubber grip you can barely see. You can easily hob them though.

They cost me £30 and you can still find them fairly easily at shows and a few UK stores.
