The German Stormtrooper set was one of my favourites too, mine was the one with orange epaulets and I still have it... bought circa 1970. We were poor, so I only got a carded uniform I believe, the rest was made up of stolen parts from my mates and I have added a few 40th bits in to complete. I shall share some photos very soon.
Seen three brown Ponchos on eBay lately ! Assume they are knock off and are not VAM..? (Please let me know to confirm) Brown twill material and two inches narrower across shoulders. wanted to make a bivi roll for my VAM SA Mann (vonSturmtrooper)
Please excuse knock off boots ! But the colour goes better with belt ! Still looking for a brown für pack if anyone has one for sale ( obvious it will be a discoloured green one or a knock off . Signed Ron Hopeful )
Weird you've posted about the brown poncho as the first, and only other time, I've seen one was at AM day in Essex a few weeks ago. I have no idea about it's origins either but as you say KO seems the mostly likely.
