My Soviet uniform from hiki arrived today! Everything was going great till I noticed the breeches were XL rather than Medium! Tried them on anyway and it's way to baggy to get away with. Hopefully I can source some other trousers in time for Saturday
Regards,

Ralph

My Ares PPSh arrived today! It's second hand from a guy who said he hasn't used in a year and half but I've regressed the gears and put a new hop bucking in so will see how it shoots tomorrow. Fingers crossed it's OK for Saturday.
Regards,

Ralph

Took a fair bit of filing and sanding to fit though.

Got these through today, super quick. Really impressed with the quality of the bayonet. Nice blued steel and lovely grain on the wood handle. Gas mask tin is nice too. Still figuring out a way to wear it without it knocking against my other kit too much.

Today I...

...Found a "Holy Grail" stash of brown battledress buttons! Stupidly cheap! 147 of the buggers!
Also found a genuine 'Lightning' zip al la parasmocks
for ~50p.

Thank you New Zealand. Thank you.

My webley arrived today, hoping it won't chrono too hot so I can play with it on Saturday.
Why do you always carry that umbrella?

Just ordered a new front bayonet mount for my k98 as the faux cleaning rod snapped completely off.

A set of M1938 suspenders turned up out of the blue. I assume it's the set Hikishop didn't send in my last order - some 4 months ago.

For those of you previously drooling over my map drafting set; here's one on eBay for far cheaper than you'd be able to buy the component parts for!

Fliegerbluse and field cap arrived today from Mr Richard Underwood. The fliegerbluse is very smart, even the wife thought it looks good on me. Very nice.
