Will throw everything on probably this weekend to get a few shots...and also to freak out the neighbors as I wage war against this ground hog that keeps eating my tomatoes..humanely stinging his ass of course with my MP40 so he'll find another porch to live under!
Not pictured: - Toque - Soldaten Liederbuch - Jackboots
**edit: a few things I'm still looking to add to my impression are: - M40 Mantel - Splinter Pattern Zeltbahn - Tornister

misc, - Pipe - Soldbuch - Assault and wound badge (for re-enactment) - Party badges (for re-enactment)
Worries, - I am way too clean to be a soldier in a middle of a war, but I didn't have time to make myself dirty. - Sling still needs oiling ;> - Need to oil my low boots also - Low boots only on the last photo, got then yesterday so they didn't get to the first pictures - A-frame not quitely 44's, but I like it when it carries all the stuff "lighter" - Brest eagle missing, haven't got time to sew it on - Webbing is still in a mess
I took a couple of pictures more today as it was raining, hopely you like. My camera made the pictures suck, again, but as I uploaded the pics to photobucket, they seemed to look even better. Only thing I have done to these pics is that I made them black and white, camera made all the rest as it's 3-4 years old and seen much of rain and etc.
But, here's the pics!
Only things added are some leaves on my helmet and little bit of dirt to my face and hands. Also The A-frame is missing and I placed the misc. little better, but unfortunately those pics didn't work out as good as these two.

The Marine "Force Recon" people are roughly the equivalent of the better-known Army Special Forces or Navy SEALs - except, of course, that as Marines they are better.
It has been a while since I posted any pics of the new gear I have got over the past few months. I plan on taking some shots in the field, etc., but for right now I just have a few of my 17th SS impression as of now. After each picture, I'll list out the contents.
Well, my first post here. I made the switch from Allied to Axis, and here's the proof. Getting the rest of my stuff (or most of it) this coming weekend at the Rockford reenactment, but, here goes nothing. My Heer FG Ost front impression.
Rip it up, tear it down, lemme rebuild. Treat me like this is the Stitch Not-See, I just didn't want to be to arrogant and post there on my first time.

A few little differences here and there: 44's messkit isnt specific to my person 44's canteen cup is repainted Helmets boots Shoulderboards Field Caps And the lack of a tornister pack in 44
Innaccuracies: No gas mask cannister: My straps broke at the last event! No Zeltbahn: Misplaced my streps;im very responsible Panzer Grenadier 1941:They werent introduced until '42 Boots: Too brand new, need some use. As well as nylon laces Tunic: m40 probably wouldnt be common in 1944

DAK Motorcycle Recon impression is finally done. I have all the gear (MP40 pouches, bread bag, canteen etc) as well. Finished it off with a tunic from Capt Zak. It's ready to go out and play (in 2 weeks).
Well, I guess it's time for me to hop in the thread.
I'm doing a basic western front Heer impression most of the time, I do have all sorts of random gear and other impressions too. These pictures were taken for a friend to illustrate the placement of the gear, and what I have.
Yes, I am overweight to be a heer soldier and I do mostly re-enacting rather than airsoft.
I'm going to have some better pictures taken at a studio sometime soon... I have actually improved my gear so much since these photos, that I am actually embarrased to show them here. Anyways, here we go.
It was unbearably hot, so I did my mantel rolling pretty quickly and it turned out to be too short... that's why it's not nicely around the A-frame.
It gets pretty damn cold here during the winter (great for Ostfront re-enacting! The actual ost front isn't too far either) so I got myself a winter uniform set. It was + 28 outside and I decided to wear it and watch tv. I felt so awesome, that I had to take a picture.
It's a long way from being done but i'm working on a Luftwaffe pilot set up using all original gear as much as possible , so far i have found a pair of Original Luftwaffe High Alttitude Insulated boots
ME NE FREGO. Guns don't kill people , husbands who come home early do. I am here to chew bubble gum and kick ass , and I am all out of bubble gum
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.
Jun 16, 2018 16:29:26 GMT -5
Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.
Jun 16, 2018 16:33:32 GMT -5
stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
