This is the first pattern jump smock for the elite German paratrooper, or Fallshirmjager corps.
The helmet is a trimmed down version of the standard army issue, designed to keep from catching the visor in parachute rigging. This paratrooper carries the Machinenpitole 40, or simply MP40, known as the Schmiesser sub machine gun, which was actually designed by Heinrich Vollmer and manufactured throughout the war.

The reverse view, he carries extra ammunition clips, and his binoculars. This is similar to how these troops would look during the invasion of Belgium.

Another single piece homecasting from black rubber molds with melted lead.
