Started stripping the paint from my mp44 to re-blue it. Nitromors is definitely not as effective as it used to be. Need to find a better alternative before resorting to mek.

Just finished blueing the MP44 and all my magazines. Took a long while but really makes it look great. I'll get some photos up when I get something approaching normal daylight here, it's been foggy and dull all day.

Stripped the Dorito's colouring off the SMLE, to be replaced with some English Walnut stain.
Fingers crossed!

Spent the evening cleaning up the barrels and hop units in an MP44, a PPSH, a STEN and two MP40s.

Finished the upgrades on a few aegs and hobnailing my low boots and jump boots. Kinda fun once you get the hang of it.

Bit of maintenance on some gas weapons. Might stick that 75° maple leaf hop rubber in my K98 but I'm on the fence with it.

I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

Noticed the wear on my K98 was getting a bit severe sonic stripped the whole thing and blued all the metalwork.

...Painted my Mk1 helmet a more desert flavour. Don't think it's the right shade of sand though :/
