Also this looks great :good:
What are you going to do with the lovely lufty impression, field troop or something more obscure?

It's badged up for Heer at the moment but I'm thinking of a way that I can easily attach luftwaffe insignia to it. Failing that I'll get a separate one for my lufty gear and use it for fallschirmjäger as I'll get a nice Tan and Water pattern field jacket for Field Division.


Great! A man can never have too many uniforms :D

Great choice - it's a lovely gun! How many mags did you go for? There is a thread that shows how to convert K98 pouches so the mags fit :good:

Thanks for the link. I'll definitely check that out. Only. Got the one mag at the moment but looking to get at least 2 more. I figure I'll be dead before I go through a whole one anyway :giggle:

From a airsoft fleamarket: Sten bandolier for 20 euros (~15 £).
Why do you always carry that umbrella?
-Bad memory. Never could remember the password. Knew no Jerry would carry one. Had to prove I was an Englishman, you see.

Also got the parts I needed to make a start on my MP41, anyone got an mp40 Gearbox spare? Lol

My brother's MP40 is buggered externally, so I was going to cannibalise it for parts if he's willing to. I'll see what I can do for you. ;)

Naw, that was mine! Ghost replaced the lower receiver for me. :happyclap:

The area around the foresight locking pin has effectively crumbled on my brother's, but from the way he tells it, the gun was on the way out anyway.

I'll be speaking to him in the next few days - I'll drop you a line if I hear either way. :good:
