    WHAT are your HOLY GRAIL ITEMS ?????

    Post by bond007a1 on Mon Aug 31, 2009 1:28 am

    I thought it would be FUN to see what sort of stuff makes everyone's HOLY GRAIL list..NOW I know that some of the things on my list are quite common...maybe to you...but for me...I have NEVER been able to succefully bid or aquire ANY of them...

    As for me...here are a few:

    any Rhodesian camouflage uniform
    East German Blumentarn uniform
    any Cuban uniform
    Panamanian uniform
    any Estonian desert uniform
    Danish desert uniform
    Czech Rep desert uniform
    Italian comsubin desert uniform
    Italian vegetato uniform

    Like I said..some of these are probably quite common...BUT not for me...

    Any type of camo, really. To be honest, my true "holy grail" items would be (not necessarily in this order):

    Red OPFOR AusCam uniform
    Jordanian KA2, any pattern
    Filipino PSG camouflage
    USN NWU uniform
    Pre-GW1 UK four-colour Desert DPM (as sold to Iraq prior to war)
    New British Arid DPM
    Snow MARPAT
    Lots of others I probably can't think of but will want sometime soon, including that Dino Camo in Camosaurus's avatar. lol!

    Camo fiend,

    I doubt anyone will ever find that Dino Camo anywhere. What I might be able to help you out with is that PSG bricks camo... Wink

    Another camo in my Holy Grail list would be the new Australian DPNU and the DPDU series 1 set.

    Other patterns that comes into mind:
    CADPAT AR
    Swedish desert
    Hungarian 4 color desert
    French experimental flecktarn tex union
    French Lizard "Algerian era"
    Colombian digital Ecuadorian Tiger
    Czech "clouds" pattern

    And the list is endless...
