                Hi Martin and Manny,
                Many Thanks for the comments,the first one i posted on ebay has already met its reserve and theres still a day and a half to go . I'm glad that putting all that effort in is now paying off.I owe Uwe Zankl all the Thanks in the world for his help with this project,he made these harness's a reality with those very detailed pictures he made and shared with me.
                Regards
                Bob

                      Was that "all except one" to me??? or did you manage to find someone else?? If not...you can mark me down for 2 minimum. *laughs* I forgot how many I'd ordered...also, if you can find the other parachute parts I'd requested, just tack those on, but I will also be more than happy to purchase those off.

                        hi Jon,
                        No problem, All are yours, and are reserved for you pending payments .
                        I hope when you and your team receive them you get some Great pre Crete pictures. I think it is an exciting time for us Collectors /Reenactors to try to recreate some of of those fantastic pics we have all seen here on the forum and in the many good reference books available. "fertigs Machen!"

                          Many thanks. The parachute arrived today and is absolutely GORGEOUS. This will go very well with the 3 chutes I've already got put together, and with one or two more chutes, I think we could have quite the display for Crete!!!

                          People are already amazed to see one FJ in a JU-52, so I am eager to show them 4-8 quality reenactors together, showing them what the Germans are capable of doing in response to the endless supply of American paratroopers and less common, but still readily available C-47 transports.

                          I definitely have to say that this chute is the "belle of the ball" though....absolutely INCREDIBLE!!

                            Hi Jon,
                            Glad the package arrived safely and you enjoyed its contents.
                            They really are a nice piece of kit ,expensive but worth it IMHO.
                            send or post some picks when you can.
                            Regards

                              Wonderful reproduction Bob. The detail work is magnificent. A worthy contribution because few originals exist.

                                Thanks John and to everybody else for all the nice comments .
                                The RZ16's sit very well with the original RZ20's we have in FJR2 U.K.,thus enabling us to portray the earlier time frames of fallschirmjager airborne operations.
                                Very expenisve project,one i would not attempt again,but i'm glad i saw it through to the end,i've had no complaints everybody is very happy with their new babies
