Another photo from Oshkosh last year. Looking forward to another great one this year as they commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII.

Nice that they let you into the Mustang. I've gotten to do that few times in the past but it isn't common that a P-51 owner will let you into the cockpit...

Cool!

 

You too, great period impressions! :D

 

One more pic of LRRP Company D, 151st Inf, 1969 (with the tropical rucksack in the left hand, sorry about the mosaic because of my glasses is not the VN era style)

Thanks dude.

 

More MACV SOG please?

 

A breakdown on who made your stuff would be good too.

 

Not completed yet. :lol: I still working on it, which might be one of my "hobby assignments" of this year.

 

Pic of my current web gear - maybe I need to exchange the position of those two M1956 canteen covers with the inside M1956 pouches?

Nice SOG stuff dude.

 

I would say leave the canteens as they are as this is how not all but a majority of rigs where set up or replace ammo pouches with more canteen covers as they held more mags.

 

Either way it looks great.

 

Here is an excellent reference page on some SOG stuff if you haven't seen it. these dudes go to another level.

I love this shot, great brackground and the color looks slightly washed out like lots of original shots from the 60s.

Great work!

This impression is based on some newspaper clippings from a February 1945 issue of "The Guidon". The Guidon was the Ft Riley newspaper. The article shows 2 photos of mounted troopers wearing gas masks and 43 jackets.The newspaper is too brittle to scan so you will have to make do with my effort. One of the men in the pictures is clearly wearing his water bottle on his cartridge belt. Other than the gas mask and new combat jacket the trooper looks as he would have in late 1942. Shortened M1 bayonets are worn but i fogot to pull mine out of the trunk. The unit is IDed as 1st Sqn,1st Training Regiment.

Hey guys!

I don't really re-enact (I live in Toronto, Canada, the few reenacting units nearby don't really interest me), but nevertheless I do like trying on the uniforms in my collection.

Here's one of my impressions, an Army Air Force Pvt. circa 1942. Ignore the shoes, everything else is authentic. Feel free to critique! (I know I'm a bit fat, but I'm working on that. As well as finding correct shoes.)

Hey BowlofRice between you and i we killed this 40 plus page thread!

 

Is it because we are from the Commonwealth?
