Might sling it over my back in that case just so it's out the way a bit. I was planning on loading it up with grenades and bb's for skirmishing.

Ralph

That's what I tend to do with mine, they hold flash bands nicely! :happyswing:

Gordon showed me how to put it in 'properly'. One thing to watch with the repro ones is that stuff can very easily fall out of the top (the zips come open, the press studs pop open etc) so you might want to sew/pin the zip up or put a stuff sack inside it or something.

I usually wear mine on my chest so I can keep an eye on it easily get stuff out.

Cheers

That's a good idea Martin. I might just put a sack in there so I don't loose my grenades.

Ralph

First go at a looks like Japanese impression, based on mikoyans suggestions:

20160124_132835.jpg


I don't actually think it looks too bad, although the Russian pouches are a bit more obvious than I'd hoped and my attempts to get a Russian waterbottle into a P37 carrier failed miserably, but the British waterbottle isn't too noticeable. I was pleased with how the helmet came out, and with a bit more foliage it'll disguise the shape more.

Banzai!

That's looking really good, Martin. I'd agree about the mosin pouches but once we're out in the field I don't think it'll be too noticeable. It definitely does look the part though.

Ralph

My German loadout - this is close in my opinion even with the cheap trouser option. I have some more options for insignia and the national emblem on the way.

Trying in my new Jap kit. Haven't got the puttees quite figured out but the rest is looking good. That backpack was a pain in the arse to sort out though.

Looks absolutely cracking mate! I said it over on the Tulagi game thread but its worth saying again: I'm so impressed with all you guys portraying the Japanese. The level of commitment in is awesome!
