I based this on my own uniform ;)

The smocks were actually quite green.

ya, some of them were (my great-grandfather took a fallschirmjäger prisoner in WWII, and brought his weapons and uniform back home)

Wow, you're lucky. FJ uniforms are incredibly rare.

Also since you are in a historical reenacting group as a fallschrimjäger, I'd like to know about the uniform differences for the oberjägers and so on.

If you know where I can find a reference to the uniforms, that'd be excellent :D

All enlisted men basically looked alike, though the number of gulls on your collar changed. As a nco, you gained silver trim on your Feldbluse and started wearing gulls on your jump smock. Otherwise, its really hard to tell the difference between the various ranks of FJ - a lot of them would tuck in their rank insignia and many did not wear any ranks on their smocks at all, even higher ranking FJ could be hard to distinguish from their enlisted counterparts while in combat gear.

Fallschrimjager's didn't have the regular helmet, their helmet was flat at the bottom :P

Actually, I reenact as a fallschirmjager and realize there IS a lip on the helmet, though it is not very obvious on some versions of the helmet. Making it just a cube on minecraft looked bad, as well.

They also DID wear regular helmets later in the war if they couldn't be issued a new helmet if theirs got lost or destroyed, and sometimes they were just issued the regular stahlhelm.

Aye, what I meant is that the small lip is quite small, and on mine craft it makes it look different quite different than the original.

I'm also wondering if you ever got my PM?

And also, I'd make the Stahlhelm look a lot different than this if I skinned it into minecraft.

How so?
I have a bunch of german skins up, and I'm looking for every way to improve them.
