Hohenstaufen

Postby stubblehopper » Wed Feb 21, 2007 5:20 pm

Just wondering how many guys are loading out as Hohenstaufen ss for the Arnhem event, need a cuff title myself got all the other stuff. It would be nice to get some photos of a large group of airsofters from the same unit.

Yup, i'm doing Hohenstaufen as well. Not looking forward to sewing the bloody cuff title on. Was hard enough putting one on my Luftwaffe HG fliegerbluse :?

BTW Kermit, Hohenstafen aside for a moment, if you're still interested in a Kubelwagen, there's a metal kit for sale on e-bay Germany for a buy now price of 5,000 E or something like that, personally I'd prefer a BMW combo, much more fun. Anyway, at least thats two of us for the Hohenstaufen so far, any more out there?

try glueing it on mate you get a special sewing glue if you glue it first then it stays inplace while you run the sewing machine over it....

Got a Nordland cuff title on at the moment, which came with the jacket, just gonna chalk around the old title take it off with a kraft knife and hand stich the Hohenstaufen one on, job done, no sweat. BTW the old title is 20 cm from the bottom of the sleeve to the base of the title, not that I'm a stich nazi, but seem to remember seeing some comments about that somewhere on this forum. Anyway T
three Hohenstaufers and counting!

Nah, stitch counting is when you look at 50 pics to find the exact stitch used to attach an Eagle to a FJ jumpsmock, and how many people would do that?............oh. shit. yeah - I did

You guys up for a ten minute photoshoot at lunchtime then?

If so, i'll chuck some props and cameras in the car :)

LOL, dont worry about it matey - thats the joy of WW2 Airsoft. You can take it as far as you want when it comes to realistic loadouts, but at the end of the day, it all comes down to personal choice.

It's up to the individual to do what they want, and not upto others to look down upon people "just because they havent got X or Y" or "patch Z is sewn on incorrectly"

My 2p on the subject :)

Look meine Herren , you are starting to get as gay as the Allies with the stitch nonsense . :wink: And believe me they are in disarray as to whether the South Staffs had pink or purple masscara on for the jump.

Glue your cufftitle on if neccessary , but wear it with pride.

Kermit, I'm definatley up for a photo shoot, cos I want to post one or two on the North East Skirmish Club web site, see if we can get some recruits for ww2 stuff.
What props have you got in mind, I can bring a panzerfaust, a couple of stick grenades, a belt of MG ammo and some binos to the party. I'm gonna loadout as a sturmmann, with K98 or mp40 feldgrau jacket, oak A trousers and helmet cover. BTW Oldsweat are you with the Hohenstaufen geezers on this one? Or are you with the Wehrmacht?

Stubblehopper - i've got some 'fausts, a few ammo tins, and some Stick grenade cans. Plus a few more bits and pieces. More props the merrier I say :)

Good point about getting the pics out and about on t'internet - get as many recruits as possible...

Jackboots in the bath? well, you know what they say - there's a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness"! :wink:
