[Sticky] Kit loans

I'm slowly getting a reasonable FJ impression together (well, OK at 100 yards on a dark night...) but my attempts to convert my plastic Stahlhelm into an M38 helmet can most charitably be described as a dismal failure. I know the game uniform reqs say I can wear an M35, but I wondered if some kind soul had an FJ helmet I could borrow? I'm a 58 but bigger is fine as I can pad it.

If not, no worries as I'll wear my sidecap or M35. I'll continue to plug away at the plastic conversion as well.

Thanks
Martin

I have one you can borrow. I'm a 59. I doubt very much if you'll bend it :D

I can lend you the MK.II shorter version if you like ,with a choice of 1911 springer or a 38 Webley replica holster filler.

"I have one you can borrow. I'm a 59"

Great, thank you.

I'll bring my other helmets as well (the chopped up plastic one doesn't look too bad with a helmet net over it), but I'd much rather have a proper FJ helmet.

Cheers

I'd like to borrow some basic 37 Brit webbing as I feel carrying a couple of small bottle of water might be a good thing. And looks better!

How big's your head Marsha? I have a 59cm FJ lid

Alternatively your coal scuttle lid would be fine. Not all FJ had the cut down ones :good:

I'll sort you out with a para helmet Marsha, I've got Helga's which is small. And if nobody tells her I'm lending it out without her permission, all will be fine :whistle:

Just in case you are scaning the forum, Happy Birthday for tomorrow Helga :wink:
