    My first Russian piece.

    Post by ripcord on Sun May 15, 2016 2:47 pm

    Took long enough, but I finally have a Russian/Soviet pattern in my collection.

    There are many reasons it took this long for me to acquire anything Russian, but it makes sense that it would  be an early pattern...

    I can definitely see why collectors  would want every variation of this pattern..

    Yes, Alex, you were right : definitely wanted more.. pirat

    Raff, your VDV post certainly is tops and a great reference. Thanks ..

    S

    Now you DEFINITELY need the first version, with pistol holster, early and late colour batches of each, and might as well get the whole lineage of the airborne series uniforms which started with the OKZK-D NBC costume for airborne forces issued in the 70s...

    Here is something that is a must for any Russian collection..

    Really like the colors on this one..


                                                                                 

                                                                                  

                                                                                 

                                                                                 



    Intersting size info overstamp ; it 's still wrong, this thing is more like a 56..

    Yes, the mustard color is hard to resist isn't it? Told myself I wouldn't get any more VSR, but I suppose that doesn't count the Winter Mustard VSR set that finally arrived after 3 months!

    ohh Alex, one shouldn't do that ... 'Mustard' is a keeper ... all other colorations such as 'green-ish', 'brown-ish', grey-ish tones etc. are rather easy to find, but mustard is not that easy ...
