Lets see your kit!

I havn't seen a thread in the WW2 section on kits yet, so let's see what everyone's got put together from starting yesterday to starting 5, 6, or 7 years ago. Help some people figgure out what they might need from either Axis or Allied, all branches.

Lets get a good photo thread going here!

I'll have mine up in a day or two!

Well,

I'll start out with one I took a little while ago... wanted to see if my new rifle, after being converted, fitted the 'look'.



So,

Taken from my profile on OAWWIIR...

My dress uniform, and my lady.


My rifle.


An event pic, pre-rifle conversion...


My tent (though I believe it is early korean war era)

Yes, however... I doubt the stencils would have been readily available at forward medical stations... this helmet is a representation of a used, or worn in medic helmet.

Haha yes, my belt is upside down. I fixed it awhile ago just an old pic.
I went to attach my .45 Mag pouch and realized it was wrong when it had nothing to clip to.

Ankle boots. Nearly identical to the current issue parade boots. The WWII boots were normally pebbled with a smooth sole with hobnails. However, I've seen many reenactors use CF Parade Boots as they're cheap and readily avaliable, as for repro ankle boots, there's only one company making them and they cost a fortune. You can find parade boots at any surplus shop or even at value village for that matter. If you're serious about putting a realistic kit togeather, look for a book called 'From D-Day to VE-Day, The Canadian Soldier, 1944-45' by Jean Bouchery. It'll tell you all you need to know about the Canadian Soldier in WWII and then some.

www.whatpriceglory.com - great source for repro british/commonwealth gear

I've seen upside down pistol belts in some pictures while researching FSSF. The M1918 double magazine pocket (or other mag pockets) snaps onto the belt. By flipping the belt over, they could carry their 1911 mags on either their left or their right.

Boots without toecaps (Canadian Forces/RAF/Royal Marines)

Boots with toecaps (British Army)

Both $85 US which is very reasonable, they are both good quality and are very comfortable after being broken in. Before that they make mincemeat out of your feet. He also sells replcement hobnails, heel & toe irons.

You can also search eBay for "Ammo Boots" there are quite a few of them on there, particularly in the UK, they are still made over there to the same pattern for work boots. You might struggle finding your size though, they are normally in the 9-11 UK range and the postage can be painful.

Best of luck,

Yorkie.
