Dragon German Army Case Green Alois Parachutist Query

Hi All,

If anyone has the Dragon Alois figure handy could they check and see if Dragon ‘struck’ the correct Jump Badge for him (WH one had the army eagle above a Swastika at the top of the badge), thinking about getting one if the insignia are correct and I can’t find any close up pictures on the Dragon site or with Google searches.

Thanks!

Mine is stored I'm afraid, but from memory it does have the correct Heeres Fallschirmjager badge

My Alois figure with some upgrades, the badge and tunic are the stock pieces that came with original figure and I believe the badge is the proper Heer jump badge

Hey Pangaea95 thanks for the closeup picture! Yes the Heer Eagle and swastika at the top of the wreath confirm its the correct badge, thanks to the helpful board members I now have an Alois in my collection!
