Stripped, stained and oiled the stock on my PPsH. Who knows, one day I might even get to use it in a game!

Well not quite today, but a few weeks ago, I acquired..."Erwin". He is really a frog masquerading as a German, but he looks damn good and is fun to drive, if you ignore the idiosyncrasies of his 2CV mechanics. Suffice to say my skills didn't extend to creating his all metal body.

He lives down in Dorset, although I not keen on driving him much beyond a 30 miles radius of his home there, least not until I can get a towbar attachment for the car to make longer journeys more viable

I went to Bexleyheath Airsoft Fair, looking for sniper rifle parts, wasn't as good as previous days, but did manage to pick up an ICS M3 grease gun for £40! Not in perfect order, and took me all of 10 minutes to get it working when I got home, new deans connector, in jam barrel and it was away. Needs a bit of looking at but not a bad bargain for the day.......considering I didn't even want one!
I like it now I have it!

....make you right, I don't need anymore, what's fatal for me is to say " This is definitely the last one I buy" and before I know it I'm saying the same thing again!

Ive just aquired an mp41 stock from HKtiger111 to fix/ upgrade my tired agm mp40. Initial fitment looks promising. I hope to have it ready for the November game in the tunnels. On another note, most of my team down in cornwall are moving to bolt action springers, so Im looking forward to the prospects of organising a potential game down here.

Made myself a pair of Russian Lieutenants shoulder boards.

They started life as my spare pair of infantry shoulderboards, with the addition of some scarlet tape and a couple of small Soviet stars each.

Maybe I'll actually get to wear them at a game one day!

Today I reblancoed my late war British webbing. It is several years since I last did it and I noticed at the Burma game how faded it was. I good coat of Shoot and Scoot KG3. It certainly looks better now, hoping to wear it for Op Rebound. We can only live in hope.

I also reproofed my rain Cape, as it letin a fair bit of water in January. Next up, I need to reproof my Zelt tent...

Reproofed my Zeltbahn tent, which knows, I might get to use it this year. I got this one from Tim and he said he wasnt 100% sure about the proofing, but on the occasions I've used it before it has been OK.

Good old Thompsons water seal, a good deal cheaper than Nikwax. I did the sidegate with it at the same time.

Bangolare Torpedo & crate.
Well I'm trying to use everything to make it s real looking as possible so I bought spacific wood & aliminium piping ect ect.
I've designed a nose cone that will be pre loaded with a charge & will not become live until the last pipe gets connected & then to fire it you will need to flick one switch & then push another so there's no chance of premiture firing or anyone being too close the the nose cone when it goes off.
As you must realise by now it won't be fired by a pull fuse but battery power. -- attachment is not available ---- attachment is not available ---- attachment is not available ---- attachment is not available ---- attachment is not available --

Bangolare torpedo.
Today I've been tinkering about to try & design a way to connect all the pipes & as I can't weld I've come up with this final idea.
Becouse everything is made from aliminium I cane use the pipe to feed the negative of the battery to the Pyro at the other end of the Bangolare.
Hope you like it.
See ya
