Hello again. This time I give you a German paratrooper in the North African desert. He is loosely based upon a photo (shown), in which a paratrooper has a full beard.

I hope you like him. Thanks for looking.

Hot Toys H/S and body, DML uniform and DID gear.

Great figure! Really like the detailing and the painted hands.

One thing though, and it's just being picky, but if he was a Luftwaffe para, he'd probably have a different style cufftitle, and at least this particular one should be on the right sleeve. Check here for the Luftwaffe cuff: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/uniforms_firearms/uniforms/luft_cufftitles/Afrika.html, or you can do a late war and maybe just replace it with the 'Kreta' title and add the brown 'Afrika' title which only reached some Luftwaffe units in 1943 (see here for examples of both of them together: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/campaign_awards/cufftitles/kreta.htm).

Although the IAB could be worn, it could be exchanged for the Luftwaffe GAB, so both would be correct. However, he'd probably have the Paratrooper badge after completing jump training. Monkey Depot has one here: http://www.monkeydepot.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=7943

Again, great figure, and I'm really jealous that you found the DID MP40 bags... ;)

I really like what you've done with your fallschirmjäger! To make his uniform even more accurate, I recommend you replace his Heer Infantry Assault Badge (an Army award) with the Luftwaffe Ground Assault Badge (an Air Force / fallschirmjäger award). Here's a link to help out ...

Paratrooper in North Africa

..........:lol Escelente images and good subject. :thumb....The Fallschirmjäger ... special elite troops of the Third Reich .... stood out for his courage and bravery. Nicknamed by the British, as the Green Devils.
I have a site on my website that makes an extensive tribute to 5 pages for Fallschirmjäger on European soil.
