The pattern is wrong. It's a copy of a copy and not of an original. It is better than many versions though.
It is discussed at length on a certain forum with German leanings.

It's not terrible, it is better than many, way better than the Sturm print, just being a copy of a copy it inherits the mistakes.

Not the greatest but better than some I have seen. Too much green. And they rarely, if ever, had shoulder boards on camo. Making good progress though.

Any chance of seeing the whole of the splinter pattern? One repeat?

Yes, it shows what I feared.
You copied a Sturm splinter print? You certainly have copied their famous mistake into you print.
It is WRONG. It is not a wartime German splinter pattern.
Image
The area shown within the box does not exist in the original specification items. It only appears in the Sturm repros and repros copied from repros.
The 'Arrowhead' shape and the fact that their are only two blocks of green are the tell tales.
Here are some originals that show the correct print
http://cgi.ebay.de/Zeltbahn-Wehrmacht-O ... 1c1cff988f
http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?VIS ... 0612501215
Where do you guys get your information from?
Who advises you on the accuracy of your prints?

Remember Genossen, some re-pro Zeltbahns are based on Swiss camouflage which is like the German pattern.

I have heard that but never seen a repro that I thought looked like a Swiss pattern copy. I wonder what it is based upon? I like to see the evidence or reasoning.
That print by RangerCamp is not what is commonly thought of as a Swiss variant.
In my mind the identifier for Swiss material is the interconnected blocks? Little lines that link or bisect the blocks of colour. That and the prominent yellow 'eggs' often seen on one side.
Not all Swiss zelts feature these markers. Some have no links and some have barely visible eggs.
I dont ever remember seeing the arrow head and two green block section on any Swiss zelt either. I own a few but they tend to utility items and never get much more than a cursory glance.
The eggs can be found on RB.numbered German production. Not as bold as on the Swiss but there for certain.
Very early [pre war?] Swiss zelts do not feature the link lines and the print on one side is almost exactly like German. The square shape and strong yellow eggs gives it away.
Here is a 'classic' Swiss zelt. In the second detail photo a 'link line' can be seen far left of center.
http://zeltbahn.panzerwerk.com/index.ph ... &Itemid=41
Very visible links and eggs on this example;
https://www.libertytreecollectors.com/p ... ategory=23
And here a side by side comparison.
http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/ ... ?p=2860820
So, I've heard the rumour about Swiss pattern being used for repro but have seen no sign of it. I think that is because for most purposes the print is similar, three smaller blocks of green amongst brown in two distinct and repeated groups.

A little addition, last picture in this series shows the 'eggs' on a German print.
http://iacmc.forumotion.com/t4508-zeltbahn-splinter
More subtle and less yellow than their Swiss kin but easily visible on the left hand zelt. No links, just eggs.

Genosse,
At last years War and Peace( Beltring Front) , Myself, Camerata Supermario e Comrade Andrei Kozlov were taking our ease, on the WPFG Plot which was just over from a Gitlerite Jäger group, they had a mixture of Original Zelts, Swiss Square and Repro Wehrmacht Heer Zeltplanen ( the very dark ( like it is soaking wet)/grey based make) ...Camerata Supermario spotted it in the Groupings/repeat patterns, they were Swiss in the nature in the Re-pro Zeltbahns...best PM him.

I hope this helps.

We had just been bitching about all the Teds using Italiano Mod 29 Telo Tenta as cheap tents rather than their own issue gear..... we put them really to Rights, they were so shame faced. we had a rather nice day.

:D
