I got it off ebay from Ukraine with the padded trousers. It's a post war jacket but I belive they were very similar to those used in ww2.

Picked up a nice pair of felt topped boots as I was freezing in low boots last weekend and can't find my jackboots.

Got myself a rubber kar98 bayonet from the field werks today. Very nice looking thing but needs a paint to make it a bit more realistic.

I got the warhammer paints down from the loft and made a start. Base painted the metal parts so far but I need to find a good colour match for the handle

How rigid is it (on a scale of "tis but a scratch" to "He's dead, Jim") if you were to give someone a good sticking?

It's very flexible and I'd be happy to receive a sticking from such an instrument :ghey:

Though I must say that if you were to bayonet charge someone you'd probably do a lot of damage from the barrel of the gun when the bayonet folds over.

The finished-ish product. Looks OK but maybe I've been a bit heavy with the edge highlighting. Still, looks better than it was.

Finally caved and got an STG44 with all the requisite pouches mags and stuff. It'll go well with my winter kit.

Bought and found quite a few things recently - can't think/be bothered to list everything.

Alas, the Derby Carboot Sale has closed it's doors for the final ever time last Sunday.... ....but I did come away with a set of WW1 type wire cutters (not the folding "frogs-legs" type, the long handled with wooden grips type!) in need of some light restoration - £2!!!
