Very nice chap. Look forward to seeing it in action in the mosquito-ridden jungles of Birmingham next summer! Banzai!!!

Still drooling over that Arisaka - however, 2x G43 puches, cap cockade and cap all on their way. So only things I need are the ubiquitous breadbag and a canteen

A slightly worse-for-wear M1928 Thompson, probably to turn into M1928A1 configuration with the British modifications.
Tempted to correct the cocking handle too

I seem to have done a fair bit of shopping in recent weeks, so let me see:

Luftwaffe Field Div collar tabs, Herman Goering Div collar tabs and cuff title.

Richard Underwood Luftwaffe gaiters in dark blue grey (lovely bits of kit).

A Japanese M98 summer uniform and insignia which will do nicely for WW2 and Indochina.

A (very) shiny pair of DMS boots to replace my poor old disintegrating ammo boots and my disintegrating BCHs. Some TLC will be needed on these to dull them. First coat of dubbin on already.

Lovat Scouts Atholl beret and cap badge.

Officers and EM (original) British side caps, plus appropriate cap badges. Royal Engineers (maternal grandfather) and Royal West Kents (Great uncle).

Original WW1 officers SD cap, which is hand made and utterly beautiful but needed some repairs.

A nice bicorne (don't ask).

Bought my first ever piece of kit for a US impression ready for Tarawa, a reenactor-used USMC helmet cover - even came with sand in the packet!

Here is my generic 37mm AT gun. I finally received parts for the split trail carriage and assembled it. Gun shield and few tidbits are still missing. It shoots marking projectiles using compressed air.

Yep. Even metal shell casings. Only the gun shield will be from plywood.

Dynamite +

Hi all
I've been a bit quiet for a time but I've been putting some new working props together.
When I say props I mean

Sorry photos the wrong way round.
All the sticks have Ww2 Dynamite labels on them & they all go bang,the rope has a fuse threaded through the middle of it & the plunger will set everything off when the handle is pushed down.
See ya.
Pete
