I know some photos of peoples collections have been posted in the german soldier section but i think it deserves its own section Very Happy

Here's mine - first up vintage mint off card






next up one of my childhood figures , not much of a uniform i know but this is how he was back in the day .
i never had this uniform as a kid , so the helmet must have been a swapsie .plus this is not his original head as the eyes had rubbed away making him look blind Sad






next up some variations mostly vintage with added 40th bits .

Fantastic set of pictures Jet, I always liked the Dak uni. When i started collecting they were and still are expensive, I have three vintage examples almost complete that i put together bit by bit which was a lot cheaper, i was very lucky to get matching items and it was well worth the search. They all have the wrong boots and the brown goggles are mam painted up, i will sort them one day  Very Happy

Amber goggles is definitely the way to go! Great touch!

Fantastic pics of a great uni guys! It's after my era so I never had one as a kid and just like Dal, I don't have one as an adult collector either!

Love the childhood guy too James!

Seeing as the German Stormtrooper was always a best seller it should have been obvious a variant like the DAK would be popular. Makes you wonder why they didn't try any more, like a snow trooper perhaps. It also makes you wonder why, seeing as they made the Royal Engineer variant of the British Tommy that they didn't do an 8th army Desert Rat!

I should say you guys need a few Desert Rats to take care of all these Gerrys!

Excellent DAK figures!!! I have a few from other makers, but these Action Man DAK figures are fantastic!

What is the story with the amber goggles? They look excellent!

You're right Steve , a desert Rat would have been an easy one to do , seeing as the had most of the uniform done for them with the LRDG .
