Re: most realistic looking reenactment photo

I think this is a neat thread and a lot of the submissions herein are absolutely awesome- but let's examine what makes a reenactment photo look "realistic". As I understand it, in this context, "realistic" means "looks most like an original photograph". While many have posted photos of themselves in...

Re: Show us you!

Halle,
From all of my photo research, Italien camouflage is nearly exclusively an SS item with a few exceptions, especially 12th SS.

Re: Show us you!

It is very easy to fix on a denix. Get a piece of wood and a hammer, lightly rap on the rear of the sling loop to tap the whole barrel off of the gun. Flip the sling loop, tap barrel back on. Super simple stuff.

Re: Show us you!

Leander_H,
I love your photo montage. Your back garden looks very 1940 France and I love the concept of the photo. Had me fooled until I read the caption. Very creative, +1 from me.

Re: Vendors for Repo M30 Gas Masks?

As far as I know, there has yet to be a reproduction German gasmask of any variant. Originals are fairly plentiful, just get one of them.

Re: Show us you!

I'm glad we're back on topic. I would replace the front clips on those Y-straps though.

Re: Denix MP40 question

Danke! So let me run this back to you before I feck it up! I tap on the rear of the barrel nut/sling fitting toward the end of the barrel and it'll pop right out? Sounds too good to be true, but if it is, all the better! I have letter and number stamps but they are a totally wrong font. The crappy p...

Denix MP40 question

I recently got a second hand Denix MP40 for displays and I am trying to improve it some. I am putting on new brown colored faux bakelite from Zib Militaria, and I would like to remove the sling attachment ring and flip it to the other side so that it is in it's correct wartime configuration. Does th...

MP38/40 in original photos

Hello friends, I am asking a favor, can you post all of the original photos you have/have access to which show MP38/40s in use? I prefer Heer truppen, but I will take anything you've got. I am doing a photo study on how soldiers carried them, how they held them, and how they were used. Commentary is...

Re: Show us you!

Not a terrible first attempt but I would definitely recommend losing the splinter, getting correct glasses, and shaving off the beard.
