I'm planning to do a Brazilian 'Smoking Snakes' bash in the near future and he's going to wear the Brazilian wool uniform along with a US jacket and US gear. I was just wondering which existing 1/6 uniform that would be the most accurate, shade wise, to use? I was thinking maybe German or green chinese ones from Battlegear Toys? Any other suggestions?

Green Chinese ones, does anyone have better pics of these?


German ones


Maybe BGT's japanese Olive/Brown or Tropical Green could work? I'm having trouble finding closeups where you can see the shade better... Anyone have better pics?


Reference;


Real Brazilian ones;


Thanks in advance!

If you're talking about the pants, both colour AND style (type of pockets, etc.) should be important to you, if you are intent on making an accurate figure.....

Yes sir! I'm going to add the pockets, just need to find the pair of pants I'm looking for!

EDIT: Found this info, so I guess any of the above from BGT could work!



I think I'll go with Chinese Green...

Impressive all around, and an education for me. I agree that the pockets seem to be the most distinguishing feature.

With all the colour variations due to the different dye baths and such I personally think you'd be safe using any of the above .

Thanks for the photo! Was it taken in Italy? I'm planning to do a little dio where a soldier from the FEB is searching a recently captured Italian NCO of the "Italia" division. Thanks, I'll let you know if I need anything!

Here's some interesting info about a direct confrontation between Brazilian and Italian troops, fall'44;
