    Nice, are you going to need jungle boots, they def go with nte Nam era, I think those are what was issued in the jungle. I have some Vietnam era m 16 mag holders if you want them. They have been sitting around my house for ages. I might even have some era h suspenders to hold up your A.L.I.C.E gear too.

    Nice setup, Jon. But no buttpack? I cannot see it from your unphotoshopped pic. Did you ever get that flak vest? Not meaning to hijack your thread, but this is my setup, as of now. I went a bit overboard (intentionally) with the water cantines, I have two attached to the Alice, and one missing in somewhere.. There is also two quarter water pack in there, as well as the shovel with it's sheat. Some of the gear are authentic, 'Nam era, and some are not.. I Have not bought the jungle BDU's or boots, but this is a no hurry project. Also not in the photo is my airsoft car-15, and some genades.. Mine will weight a ton when finished, without the bullets, water and other stuff!!! There is a army surplus store near me where I have bought all of these, if there is something you need, let me know and I'll see if they have them.

    Hi chibi

    Yep the butt pack is there buddy (you can just see the straps frm it in the 'shooting' phot)

    I too have two canteens but have left my shovel off as that will go on my lightweight ruck once I get it.

    and yep I got the flak jacket

    Re: Non SW but my 'other' costume

    Nice, REALLY nice. I'm taking the shovel out from my alice too, as they were not carried in the jungle, but left in the firebase when embarkin on a missions (there is only so much use for a shovel in a jungle..). How much did you pay for the flak jacket if you don't mind me asking? The nearby store asks a 140 euro's for an authentic 'Nam era jacket, which, while is tempting, still is a bit pricey.. And now that you mentioned it, I can see the straps from the butt pack...

    Tim - that is one very fine costume. Is it all period ?

    Chibi - my flak jacket cost a lot but you can get them for around £100, still very pricy though

    Jon, please call me Ville if you don't mind going by first name basis.. I checked the Flak jacket, and it's 149 euro's, which is around the same price as yours.. I guess I'll have to get it while I can, as it won't be any cheaper. As far as periodical jackets go, at least.

    Ville - 149 euros is about the going rate and they won't be getting any cheaper bro

    if you want we can run ideas past each other as our kit comes together

    love the B&W Chop job pics, you gotta age them a little more, some yellowing or blood stains would be really cool.

    These are some very nice setups you guys... I've been really leaning towards making some type of WWII setup, do you guys have any advice? Maybe a good place to find items? Thanks!

    When I was doing boot camp, they showed us Full Metal Jacket just to warm us up. Very funny. But that Kubrick movie is like a summer camp compared to reality, so if you want to join voluntarily (I was forced) - think it over THREE MORE TIMES, stupid

    Thanks for the advise (although a little late ). Been there and done it. 3 years in the British regular forces and then 15 years in the Territorial Army (and now i teach young cadets). This dressing up stuff is far more fun though
