Go4Broke, WOW! You look good and I mean REALLY good! If you were caucasan like us of European decent it wouldn't have the same effect. Well done! Best Japanese impression I have EVER seen. Put those pics in the Stich Knot-See thread! The Samuri sword is a nice touch.
Danny, AWESOME! I'm guessing that's a standard issue Japanese Imperial Army garden hose behind you as well. LOL
Of course! What better to water the cherry blossoms of our Imperial Land of Yamato, whose utter beauty makes our enemies, the capitalist Yankee dogs weep with?
...that and I hate your everseeing farb detecting eyes, Jack!
Thanks for all the comments guys! Yeah I just got my IJA kit over the weekend from a friend, and just had to go out and take some pictures, albeit in the yard. Now I just gotta wait for that Tanaka Type 99, and I'll be golden. BTW that sword is my family's original IJA NCO sword, that my great-grandma, er smuggled into the US after the war, lol.
And yes, Shutze and I will rule the world, after we take care of certain nuisances...

Dru, looking good! I like the idea of an Italy impression as you know. The only thing I would change (and it really inst much of a change) I would recomend you bent the bill of your hat. The straitness of it now makes it look like you are a new recruit and you would be more likely to have a tropical stuff if you were an Afrcia vet. Other than that all you need to do is get dirty and you got it made. Again, well done!

The hat is actually pretty new, but the tunic has layers of dirt on it. I don't want to bend the bill because it supposed to protect the face and eyes from the sun bending it would let the sun hit my eyes. I do put it in my gas mask can during play, so it gets a little bent that way. I don't like the look of the bill when its broken down the middle.
Jager.Drü Great! Remember, your not supposed to bend the bill but obviosly it did happen, and you do look more vetran, if you did it, I ike to wear my hats and let the bill bend naturally. But thats just me.
My suggestion is, Take the pictures outside! It would look awesome in the bright Italain sun!

aj czarkowski: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
