Awesome. It's nice to see some military gear around here once in a while, especially WWII. I'm a big collector of U.S. camouflage from the South Pacific theatre, I want to get around to taking some pic's eventually. I've also got about 10 German uniforms too.

That looks great.

Here is another source for uniforms.
WWII Impressions

I saw that on the History Channel's Mail Call, but I haven't bought anything yet so I don't know how good their stuff is.

Thanks guys. The paratrooper still needs work, but he is close.

My source for WWII is At The Front

http://www.atthefront.com/

They've got thebest replica stuff, and the Rant is funny as heck (not very PC)

I need some riggers pouch, and also the hard to find invasion gas mask bag.
Would love to see some of your WWII display. Post em' . :)

aw, very nice. :love

What's the white bottle and other stuff on the belt? I don't remember seeing anyone wearing those. Also, is the knife on the back the bayonet, or a boot knife?

Again, very nice. :thumbsup

Thanks. The "white bottle" is a incenary M6A1 grenade replica. Used by the paratoopers to disable cannons. The other pouches are "rigger pouches" for paratrooper specifically, and can hold M1 clips (4) or 2 grenades.

On the back of the belt, I have a 10" M1 Garand bayonet. A boot M3 camillus is coming to complete my impression.

Added Paratrooper "Let down" rope and Replica Hawkins mine to the Paratrooper loadout. I think I am done with the BOB impression :)

Boy, those paratroopers sure do carry A LOT of gears.

Now, If you're not a US resident, like me,
are there any good sites for buying replica WWII rifles,
the M1 garand to be specific??

These rifles don't have to be real (wood and metal) or airsoft or anything,
they can be resin or any other 'replica' material.

I've been looking allover for them, but no luck whatsoever.
(I don't wanna pay 100's of dollars for them either :angry )

-sorry to maybe hijack this thread, but I do hope someone can help me out-
