Re: The Kit Pic Thread

Had these a while, but thought I'd share. They were taken in Normandy (near Carentan) and the Jeep is a restored war time model (not mine unfortunately)!

Re: Professional Upgrades?

5. Cylinder, so thing will increase your FPS and can also increase or decrease your FPS, say if you got a heavier metal cylinder your get a higher FPS just slower RoF, but this will last for ever! But make sure the rest of the gun can function with it. Again your going to have to ask the dealer abo...

Re: Air Weapons and the Law

My understanding, after a lot of on line research, that didn't lead to anything official, is that: 1. There isn't any legislation for airsoft replicas, anything below 1.35J is classed as a low powered air weapon. 2. The 1.35J limit isn't legislation, it was as a result of home office research using ...

Re: RAF cap identification

Hard to tell from the images, but given the condition and colour of the material I'd say it was a fairly new one. Obviously depends on how well it was treated, but I've seen 10 year old ones that looked worse than that. Interesting that it's had the brim pulled down in the usual manner, despite the ...

Re: US infantry kit

If it doesn't go as a job lot I'm interested in the entrenching tool and mess tins (subject to cost) - let me know.

Re: In memory of Meltham - New Northern WW2 Event July 17th

Can't do 17th (1st Wedding Anniversary!), but would be interested in other WW2 games at that site (subject to it including US Airborne) - you'd probably get all of Fox Comp along (5 of us), if the dates are right (we're all local to that site). However, and its a big 'however' - we wouldn't be comin...

Re: alternative to jumpboots??

My first jump boots were a pair of old British Army High Legs - I used a sanding attachment on a Dremel and took the top layer off the leather, then using some of the paste type renovating polish made them the correct colour! Took a while to get right and you have to be careful with the stitching wh...

Re: Waterproofing the ASG MP40

No AEG, WW2 or modern, is waterproof and in theory shouldn't be mixed with water (risk of shorting). However, I've played in heavy rain, snow, hail and everything in between, over a number of years and have never had a single issue. I wouldn't go swimming with one, but I can't see the need to take p...

Re: American Kit Pics

The way you are holding your weapon in the first two photos. Butt up in the shoulder, muzzle down. It's a very modern way, not very 1944 Normandy. I would have thought this was the natural way to hold the weapon when in combat conditions (on patrol etc.). Agreed, I doubt any WW2 soldier would pose ...

Re: Attending WWII airsoft events

I voted 'Fairly Interested' as I still do modern milsim, although I'm struggling getting to any airsoft event this year due to child care (long story). I started WW2 due to a schoolboy interest in that period of history, it being another way of playing airsoft and wanting to scratch the 'back to bas...
