You have a great and informative web site. I just wanted to share what goes on here on this side of the globe. Our airsoft team is basically is composed of Filipino and American expats. We are blessed to be in the Airsoft mecca of the world with great airsoft gun choices and lots of inexpensive replica gear and cheap tailors who can make anything.
Our team is also blessed with graphic artists and photographers who can recreate our photos into period style photos using state of the art cameras and software.
We also reenacts VN aswell as WW2. If you are ever in Hong Kong please do not hesitate to contact us for a tour from your Asian Brothers in Airsoft arms. You can visit our team web page here: lrrphk.proboards57.com/index.cgi?
Some of our phots below: We have no access to real guns here so everything is airsoft.
Thanks for the kind notes guys. We try and get it right but the hard part here is finding the correct locations for back drops sometimes and getting enough people interested in an actual ww2 style game is next to impossible.
How'd you get Photo #4 like that? I want to know so I can do that with mine!
That was managed using the contrast and brightness controls in MS Office Picture manager then further adjusted in photoshop with the grain adjustment. It's all trial and error. A couple of our team mates are real graphic masters so to be honest they may know of a better way of doing it.
I think the real trick in doing these photos is putting yourself in the position angle of where a real combat photographer would be and properly cropping the picture. This is something we are trying to learn too by really looking at period photos and footage. Sometimes we are more succesful than other times.
Thanks for the kind notes. We (except me) are all Filipino) so we have some challanges with trying not to look Filipino, especially doing an SS impression. That's why faces are mostly hidden in this case. The unit size varies depending on the potshoot. Rarely do we play an actual ww2 style game as there is little interest here. We have no blank fire guns in HK as it's against the law so everything must be airsoft or custom made
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.

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.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

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.
