  4. Hi Ken,Nice to hear from you.I fancy building a couple for a display i have in mind relating to the Rapido river crossing,You got any specs for any of the type in your foot locker?..I have some basic stuff but nothing firm to use.When we went Italy last year a guy in casino "aquired" a paddle from a farm, the farmer was using to get his pizzas out of the oven near the Rapido.So there was a big chance it was used by 36th.So that got me a finking :thumbsup: Something unusual and kinda usefull as well :w00t: .. If any one can help i'd be greatfull. Cheers, Dave.

  14. Jon,You could kit your self out with originals for buttons in your size...
  15. They do come up from time to time on Ebad,I managed to get a nice one in 07 that would have been a 46L[52inch chest] if the lable was present.There was a guy over here that had a big one [50 inch chest,Lable 44R]forsale at my last show i did.I also asked jerry Lee,he said no one had enquired about them..There is a way you could get them done,ask one on the chinese sellers on ebay??.you'd have to have a minimum order and send a original.. Dave.
  16. I want to sort the rust out on the inside,So it don't transfer on to the liner..
  17. Can any of you guys tell me how you treat rusting so as the paint isn't damaged?..Also how common was black camo? And what theaters were mainly doing it. Thanks, Dave.
  18. This type is the Philips Pack Saddle,I think RobinB has one or two..Not sure on yours Tom..Its not in my FM25-7 pack Transport Manual. Dave.
  19. I had a couple of real bad corroded ones off Ken[remember how bad they were Ken :crying: ] some time ago,All i did is gave all terminal connections a good sanding and a spray/clean with wd40. Does the switch move ok?,May be worth giving it a spray with WD40. Dave.
  20. Do you think the stamped are early mfg,Compaired to the ink stamp?.If so do you think there may have been breaking issues bit like the blade marked m3?..[Just thinking out loud :think: ].. How close are the OEC 1979 made to the WW2 made ones?..do you see many pitons up your way Robin?,I've got some type I III and IV coming over.No stampings,But unpainted. Cheers, Dave.
