Me too.
I have painted some Chinese copies as a stop gap.
The ones I have seen are not the same field grey as WH, being more of a tan shade.

You want coastal artillery ones i presume to go on a field grey tunic for KA impression. Same design as km ones just painted a greeny sand colour.

If so for shoulder boards

Main buttons

Very good ones. They are original. I have brought two sets of him for my KA impressions. Will be buying some more soon of the seller for another uniform. Not easy to find otherwise.

Hope this helps.

21mm is too large for the tunic.
They are Greatcoat size.

Try these. Regulation size was 1mm less. Stated in Angola's keiegsmarine uniforms and traditions vol 3.

Every Fieldgrey KM tunic I have seen have had the 18mm in all positions.

18 is very small it's shoulderboard size almost. 17mm is shoulderboard size for KA.

The first link is for 18mm shoulderboard buttons if that's the size you want.

You at Detling this year? If so pop by my pitch.
