Hi everyone – have picked up a few more bits and pieces of late:



First up an eagle and a fliegerhauptingenieur der reserve board. I picked the board up on ebay for 30 euros. I guess no one knew what it was:


Next up, a set of fliegeringenieur auf kriegsdauer tabs, and a board (regrettably only a single) with the pink underlay:


Some T boards for the summer tunic for a fliegeroberingenieur and fligerhauptingenieur:


Two sets of boards for a fliegerhauptingenieur, both in unworn condition with the smaller pips:


A very salty and well worn set of boards for a fliegeroberstingeniuer. These ones look to be cottage made but I have no doubts that they are the real thing:


Boards for a fliegeroberstabsingenieur, and for a fliegeroberstingeniur:

I now finally have the complete set for the regular officer ingenieurkorps ranks up to the general ranks.



I still will be on the hunt for boards and tabs of better quality and condition, as well as for a tunic (one day…!). I intend ultimately on setting up a display board with all of the tabs and boards, once I have them. I still need to get hold of the generalingenieur boards and tabs, plus some more of the a.K boards and tabs. I think it may take me a while to get the last few…!

Cheers,

BC

Embrace your inner pinkness! One awesomely focused collection there. Are you going to get into the Nautiker stuff while you are at it?

Thanks guys

Hi Paul - I was thinking about nautiker stuff too at one point but that branch is even harder to find... none the less I am keeping my eyes peeled. Still have some tabs and boards for engineers which are proving very elusive...!

Cheers

BC

Hi everyone – latest acquisition is a well worn Luftwaffe officer’s sidecap, named to a G Kirsch. According to the Luftwaffe career summaries, Kirsch was a Luftwaffe hauptingenieur, so I had to display the cap with some new boards and one of my sets of tabs






Cheers

Hi everyone,

I have been searching for tunics for this branch for quite I while and I am very pleased to now own two, thanks to a kind forum member.

The first is a tunic for a fliegeringenieur – this one looks like it has seen some service and was possibly re-issued, as it exhibits wear and signs of having the arms lengthened plus some other tailoring. The insignia looks to be all period applied. The tunic is very small!




The second is a lovely fliegeroberingenieur. This one is in excellent condition and shows little service wear. Again all insignia looks period applied.







I am very happy to now own a couple of tunics in this branch. My long term aspiration is to own one of each rank. A man can dream!

Thanks,

BC

Thanks to the generosity of a fellow forum member I was able to purchase this set of tabs recently, a lovely set for a fligergeneralingenieur. These tabs at some point in their life got wet, which has rippled the material slightly. The wonderful thing about these to my eye are the mix of the gold bullion and celleon thread; the tarnishing of the bullion showing up in stark contrast to the bright celleon. This gives these tabs some wonderful character.




And by way of comparison:



I now only have one more set of tabs (senior sonderfuhrer) to obtain to get the complete set of tabs (boards on the other hand for the general ranks still elude me....)

Cheers,

BC
