Re: Most Memorable Moments

1) I too found the sink bracket in the bog - so 3-0 to the bracket! :rofl: 2) Stalking a tunnel (light discipline is essential in them) in the complete darkness and seeing a Yank coming towards me with the occasional blip of his torch to light his way.... As he passed me (I was against the wall he w...

Re: Snow Wolf Thompson

Anyone know anything about the Snow wolf Thompson. Seen it for the first time on a list of items available fom Honk Kong, is it the same as the Cyma version re-packaged? Sadly it seems that AGM aren't producing the MP40 anymore. Have had a couple of price lists from various suppliers and although t...

Re: German Infantry Eagle Chest Patch

The last two bits advice are sound - The picture is an absolute gift. I have a pair of black coveralls (washed out a bit mottled) that are actually post war but follow the same pattern as Panzer Coveralls. They have large flapped breast pockets which button up. The front buttons and these are covere...

Re: German Infantry Eagle Chest Patch

As B&H says - if it's for a movie - and you want to be accurate - Plain coveralls....... no rank was worn on work uniforms anyway (officially) and defintely not a "crusher"..... you would wear a "schiffchen" or side cap....... that's a definite...... Soft field cap. An M43 at...

Re: WW2 Normandy Battle - Cerisy forest D+3 16/17 July

Thanks for "holding the fort" as it were Chommers! Choms is indeed correct. Any person holding an event should have in place insurances sufficient to cover all and any risks which may be encountered. Usually these would be Employers Liability, Third Party Public Liability, Personal Acciden...

Re: correct way to hold an MP 40?

Real Steel: An MP40 was designed to be fired with the supporting hand gripping the bulge on the bakelite furniture just behind the magazine housing. In practical terms this led to the weapon feeling unbalanced as it is short even with the stock extended. Gripping the magazine housing is an acceptabl...

Re: where can i get an mp44 sling ?

MP40 had a dedicated sling.
K98 used a standard rifle sling which all subsequent German rifles used. (MP44 G41 G43)
Good repros are available from such as sof and rau. We bought 30 from sof last year for our real steel ones. They are standing up to hard use.

Re: Making new kit look old

It's perfectly feasible that you would have a "clean shirt" in your clothing bag or even stuffed in a gas mask tin etc. Soldiers even today tend to wash clothing items - especially underwear, socks and shirts - as often as possible for obvious reasons. I have photos of friends and comrades...

Re: HAVE YOUR SAY

Yeah - due to the construction of the Stick Grenades they will not function as thermobarics. Shame but at least we tried :good:

So it's standard Mk5 strength Stick Grenades or regular thermos. I like thermos. :twisted:

Re: Detailed plans od a mg34

?????? Measure the length of the drawing - Then divide 48 by that figure (so say it's 4.8inches in length on the drawing - 48/4.8 = 10 therefore it's 1:10 scale) Or size the drawing up so that the length of the MG on the drawing is 12inches...... which would make it 1:4 scale. If you are having dif...
