Re: ww2 reenactment

I would recommend joining an established group first, the travel is somewhat irrelevant as even if you form a local group you will end up travelling all over the country to the public shows and private battles etc. Get a couple of years experience of the scene, get your kit right etc, before startin...

Blank fire MP40

As I am retiring from reenacting after 10plus years my gear will be appearing from time to time on here! First up is my converted MGC MP40, nice conversion with the reinforcing ring and correct telescopic spring tube. Comes with 6 Vig mags and an original strap for £1100. I have more pics that can b...

Re: M40 restoration

I would definitely strip it first as a matt paint over the top is going to scratch off really easily. Get it to bare metal then prime etc in the usual way, much more durable!

Re: Aging uniforms

If you must age it, wash first to shrink the seams (they buckle up slightly) then using a very fine sandpaper lightly skim the 'highlights'. Other than that let them get dirty, wipe your hands on the trousers when eating, spill stuff, throw yourself on the ground, sleep in them.... they'll soon lose...
