Ok I cast my vote for green step in...

remember SQUADRON/SIGNAL FALLSCHIRMJÄGER Booklet
Fritz Becker in his greenie and Gauntlet gloves

remember airfix 1/32 scale FJ toy

A greenie could and was used EVERYWHERE!!
....historically and reenacment"mäßig"!!!

There´s something "spiritual-mystical" about a green knochensack.......like the fishtail parka for a Mod!!

I agree. And I also voted for green smocks.

BUT Airfix 1:32 on the parcel had SPLINTER Smocks (the officer had kind of tan, but all others splinter. also on the backside the description for painting shows splinter), not green ones and bluegrey "Wollhosen". So thats no argument for green smocks but for splinter. On the parcel it said something like "blaugraue Tuchhosen wurden dazu kaum getragen" I remember it well...

Here is a link. The parcel in the 70ies was little different but the picture and printing was the same:

I vote for the green step in. Like others have said...It was worn from beginning to end and its classic! However....I can't help but to love them all! Both the green step in and the Splinter button up jump smocks are worn in a new film....Devils of War. It's a purposelyade to look like a bad B flick sci-Fi film set in WWII. Very cool Fallschirm uniforms with attention to detail! ;-)

Just imagine trying to paint a splinter pattern 1/32 scale. I'd settle for a green coat!

An interesting and similar analogy to Willi's jump smock question would be, "which jump helmet best represents the Fj?
1. DD
2. SD
3. Camo, and if camo, a specific camo?
4. late war no decal

Perhaps we should create this thread.

yes , i vote for the SD helmet with Black rubber, second type chinstrap, and steel screws first type
I think the more representative
bye

You should add the Luft Ground Forces Jacket too. It was worn by FJ in all theaters at all times during the war. Don't get all wet here....just a suggestion.

It does not say "Which uniform best represents the Fallschirmjäger", but "Which jump smock..."

Double incorrect - it was introduced to late to "was worn... in all theaters at all times...", and pics showing true paras wearing one are very rare, although it is common sense.
