Can anyone ID the thing pinned to his jacket next to the flower?
Please stop using this OP. If there isn't a thread, wait for someone else with the better OP to make a new one. Or save this one.
Could it be a very early flashlight?
That's what it is, I forgot what they were called, though. Elves? Eaves? Something like that.
Gotcha. I figured it was more special than usual.
Just got this as a gift. I know its Russian, but I have no idea about the history or russian designation of the helmet. The markings on the oxygen mask are "KM-32, 80". How much is this thing worth?
Logic would dictate that it was used in the Somalian affair, just before the CAR was disbanded.
Here comraden strap lantern to your chest.
Speaking of cars, Nigel Farage assassination attempt.
Can someone tell me how much the epaulets and shirt might be worth (each item) by themselves?
Jesus fuck let that meme die, it makes us look like huge faggots. (more than we actually are)
Also, got in contact with Estonihat-bro, and a size 59 copy of the M-43 pattern is coming my way. I think that that's a good average size, and I'll try my hand at a non-camo/final version with some extra material that I already have, and post a pic or two when that's done.
The romy-fleck fabric is being printed in a few months (2-3) because I'm a little tight on cash, my grandmother's roof had a collapse from a large leak paired with some melting snow and heavy rain we've had. Sorry for the delay guys, but it'l happen eventually.
Yeah I'm finding that out real quick. Thanks again for all the help and guidance too.
At least I don't have to pay (not that I could if I wanted to!) some slavs to piece it together. XD
Looks more like that desert jigsaw that Chad used.
Second for Swiss tigerstripe.
What's going on over here then?
No tags, back says Israel air force in english is it legit or a good goy souvenir?
They came in a lot with things I actually wanted
It's a German police dress shirt. I paid 25 dollars for the epaulets, tie, and shirt all together. The tag just says "GOLF" with the words 70% Baumwolle 30% Polyester under it. On the inside of the sleeve it has T43/ 44 001/88 printed. The insignia on the sleeve is a regular German police patch, a red shield with a white horse. If you want any closeups of any part of the shirt I'll be happy to provide.
All this for $26 shipped
'Mirin those badges
The pattern is cool at least. What's wrong with it?
Also found a name inside the pants
Who the fuck do you think you are?
He had literally never said "soon". He just dodges questions and lets his bosses answer "soon".
Of course the real answer is "never" because if they actually deliver they would have to stop getting money for nothing.
Could you define what you mean by actual use? Also what's wrong with Poland, are they the China(when it comes to clothing, god damn those chinks couldn't make a decent jacket if their lives depended on it)of Europe? All I want is a jacket that looks good and won't disintegrate after a month of wear. Is that too much to ask?
I was referring to use on the battlefield. They're probably fine for casual wear around town.
And yes, Polan is often considered the China of yurokekistan because of all the knock-offs and plain shitty products the make.
All right then, Is there any company that makes a non shit M65 repro(even Alpha industries tries to pass off chinkshit as the genuine article now, I'm not paying 180 dollars for chinkshit) or am I gonna have to go surplus. If surplus, where can I buy from that won't sell me some made in China piece of shit?
Then where can I buy a surplus from and know that it's actual surplus and not new production made in china garbage. Fuck man, even Alpha Industries outsources to China now(and passes the savings onto themselves), and they have the gall to charge 180 dollars a jacket, for shit that isn't even made to the original specs(pockets smaller, liners don't fit right, etc.). To quote some guy who's review I read on them, I'm not paying made in America prices for a jacket that was made in China.
I got a new camera today, and it was a nice overcast day. How's the photo?
I do, but it's getting too dark out for pictures unfortunately. I have 5 types of nuggets, a K31, an Ishapore 2A1, a Enfield Martini converted from .303 to 20 gauge, an a VZ24(t)
Is anyone else's new years shill bonus late?
A few pics of what I'm making will look like. (If all goes well)
desperately looking for East German camo, that ships to Canada for less than the cost of my first born son. any options?
A 59 will fit me actually.
>Eesti guy still not claimed his £13
>All these industrial sewing/overlock machines for sale near me
I guess textile manufacturer in the UK really is dead. Not to overshadow you spook, but the biggest cost I can actually do something about is the work cost, I'm somewhat inspired to start small and eventually make larger things. I had all the materials in front of me for the parkas for example, but not the skill to use them.
Just won a sexy faded Tropical DPM shirt with Corporal rank. My size too.
Nice, also what do you want on that helmet i'm restoring for you? Like any designs? name? Oh also i'm not sure if I asked you this but do you want a sandy finish on it instead of cork?
I'd like to use mine, I have both parka and pants. But mostly its eye candy to make collection more fancy.
Thinking about buying one of those flecktarn flak jackets. Nugget Enterprises apparently stopped selling them a while back, which is a shame. Would have preferred to buy it from them. Does NE sell anything similar that I missed?
Noice. I just won pic related. Now starts the money pit that is Asian camouflages.
Also this. I'm more excited for this.
Yar. Someone tried to snipe it from me in the last seconds but my autobid said no way José.
Im gonna sell some of my items because I want some space for more exotic designs. its really gonna be repro uniform set or common camo patterns. the only foreign thing i'll sell would be the Portuguese shirt because I got 2 now
Pic related my full ass closet
Beautiful, unissued stuff is hard to find.
*ArmA desire intensifies*
I posted in the last thread about finding the Serbian parka. I went back to the store today and I did get a hood for it but I didn't see any ones with fur collars. I did find pic related in what was labeled as Czech but the place isn't always accurate. I was just wondering if maybe this is the right thing.
I'm glad it's legit. I was a little suspicious. But based off who it was from I wasn't too concerned. It is called Fang, right?
That looks like one of the Czech Cadet parkas.
It could be. Unfortunately the most they ever label their apparel as is what country its from and what time of clothing it is. ie: Czech Parka is what this was labeled. The only one ive seen labeled more detailed is the Austrian M65 parkas they have. Sometimes they have the camo type too.
It's Czech. If it has zip closed pockets it's a cadet parka, if it's got buttons it's an M85.
That's what I call it. It doesn't have a name. It's sometimes called "MK.1/Type 1 Camouflage" or "Japanese Airborne Camouflage", although that is inaccurate since it wasn't restricted to airborne troops.
Sorry I had to miss, had a date to fix up a rifle.
I've met Sully, friendly guy. Would feed him children's souls again. Bough a number of things off of him too
Did any of you guys dress up in camo?
I'm a complete asshole.
Got to make my freckle quota.
I wore my M84 parka and the OG107 from the OP image.
No homo. I even brought my family.
I done told you to go buy braces for that bar. Most of us here have experienced a closet failure.
Go to the hardware store and buy a 2x4. Cut it to length and screw it into the rod in the middle.
If you want to make it look pretty buy some while spray paint.
Bam. Problem fixed.
>German Navy parka
Got any pics?
>even brought my family
What a nice guy.
So I'm going to stain my rifle soon. Can anyone tell me if there is another step after the staining? Do I need to apply a protective layering of some sort?
This is my first stain job of any kind so I'm a bit unsure.
>experienced a closet failure
>implying that you're not the closeted failure
I should take another Swissurp photo. This one is really out dated.
HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO PROPERLY BLOUSE THE WINTER ALPENFLAGE PANTS
I TIE UP THE DRAWSTRINGS BUT THEY KEEP UNDOING THEMSELVES
AND WHAT THE FUCK IS THE PURPOSE OF THE SNAP BUTTONS ON THE CALVES
AND WHY DO THE FUCKING SUSPENDERS KEEP FALLING OFF
Tie them around your ankles and double knot.
I'm assuming you have normal boots? The Swiss issued ankle-high boots with gaiters, not normal boots.
>Snaps on the calves
Slim down the trousers so that they aren't so baggy and won't snag on anything.
>Suspenders keep falling off
Claimed it and shipped your purchase bro.
I took the liberty of throwing in a few little bonus items.
Nah, some anon posted a fit idea because he thought pic related was too baggy.
And some guy on ebay had a tunic for £18, and I already wanted the wool boonie (plus I couldn't find a grey beanie that wasn't shit.).
You spoil me.
Have you tried crossing the suspenders?
That was me as well. The tunic is a definite move forward from the doomsday prepper look that for sure. Just feel like having it a size smaller would've pushed it that extra notch (towards urstcore for instance).
For only 18 quid beggars can't be choosers. Always loved the butt pockets on swedish gear. It might be interesting to scope out the green (moleskin?) version of the tunic as well.
Speaking of Urst, something familiar will appear on his blog quite soon.
To each his own.
My thrift has the green tunics in on the regular, I might pick one up next time I see them. Been putting it off since forever.
Given his latest fitpics, I'm curious about the way he'll style the parkas. Hopefully he left his lunarcore phase behind him cause I'm digging the Kapital-vibe of his recent posts.
Im going to guess you walk with you feet pointed outwards? You wore those jungle boots ugly, amigo.
Oh right. They're some repro I bought an age ago.
Alpen I missed the parcel guy pick-up at the post office but I still expected it to reach you this week.
For a laugh here's the first milsurp image I ever took.
>I've noticed there haven't been any updates in the last month or two on the project. When should we (people who donated and signed up for e-mail updates) expect some more progress?
Literally just reply to the update e-mails with questions, it only takes like 5 seconds.
use shellac if you want the authentic commie finish there's various methods involving rit dye and iodine to get your shellac to that classic red finish but it only comes naturally with aging so many of them look kind of crap until you get the ratios just right
I hope Urst doesn't wear the parka like some Alien extra (that's lunarcore for your information). In his latest pictures on his weblog he has been wearing a lot of military surplus and wore it in a similar fashion to a Kapital (clothing brand) look.
If you want me to break it down even further, I'm happy to oblige grandpa.
Looks like a "faces of meth" type of thing, only with surplus.
SURP, NOT EVEN ONCE.
Scored this for 5 bucks.
Pants, shirt, hat, and battle jacket/carrier in a.l.i.c.e. trying to find more info on who wore it.
Only know its from 25th Infantry stationed in Hawaii, it has blood stains on it. And the Tropic Lightning insignia.
Any info would be appreciated.
I'm assuming it was worn in 1965-1970 when 25th Tropic Lightning was stationed in Vietnam.
I'll take a photo of the tag when I'm home from work. Thanks telny
Fashion is a mysterious world indeed.
This applies to both posts.
Passively. There's a constant eBay auction for ones that are $70 but I never have the cash to shell out for one. Do you have a hookup for one cheaper?
I hope I post pictures before him so I can say I was the first.
Don't regret it. They aren't worth that much. I got mine for $40 and $20 of that was shipping.
>blousing something that never was meant to be
My office just got a whole box of new, unissued Afghan Border Police shirts under the 1033 program because I guess we can't have tanks and grenade launchers anymore.
>Forget >>28427940, can you grab me the box?
I'll see what I can do about getting some more. I'm really the only guy there who actually got excited over this, but I can't reveal my power level to the coworkers.
So far I've gotten a black Polartec fleece, a pack of shitty canvas gloves, and more of the brown, itchy thermal long underwear with the vagina-shaped fly than I need.
Most likely a Polizeioberkommissar rank.
Here comes some miscellaneous shit.
An old model 58 Pattern gm bag, also one of the first pieces of surp I ever got.
Apart from the rangefinder case, I believe this is a mostly complete BW set.
Got a Danish filter with this for some reason.
I believe it's an M62, I think the M65s are the ones with drinking tubes. Correct me if I'm wrong.
East German police windbreaker (or "Uniformjoppe", as they're called over there).
I've got another RPK mag pouch, it's more of an Afghanka tan, but it's belt loops are sewn too tightly. This is a work in progress.
No canteen. I used it for airshit and innawoods, hence the dirt. Easier to get stuff out of the haversack when it's lower.
I guess, but on mine I have mag pouch, space, haversack, e-tool, mag pouch, and I could still fit a canteen pouch and another mag pouch. Also, are you willing to part with that canteen pouch? Cause I want one desperately, and the only other place I've found in flecktarn.co.uk.
I was told this was a CIDG rucksack. Anyone know if this is true? If not, know what it is? It's like a small ALICE except canvas, and some minor differences.
Has the name "BURK" stamped on the upper back
I'm holding onto it, sorry. I got most of the stuff from I think goarmy.uk, I picked up the holster and gas mask set separately.
Random stuff. Everything from a M1910 canteen dated 1918 to a 2006 MOLLE waist bag.
Here's one for Sully if he's around. Don't know much about it.
Has a few stamps that say something, then have "Mills" in a bullet. Can barely make out a 1918 date.
Sorry Gerwitz, I like 'em too.
The badge says "The State" "Zzvgzgt Factors"
The mongols changed their rank system in '92 so I don't know what it is. Maybe PFC?
Had a little tag in the pocket.

And for fucksake here's the goddamn Norgies already.
It'd about goddamn time. What happened to the elastic?
This is the better one.
I don't think I could afford it, it's rare as shit.
Also I have other targets.
What do you mean? It's still there.
Nice, got pics? Are you the dude in Mongolia?
There's a Mongol on ebay selling the new digital border guard stuff, he's got uniforms, caps, and boonies.
I'd take some pictures if it weren't buried in an archive box.
Half the snaps were rusted closed because they used the cheapest crap they could. All in all it's still a rare jacket, I did pretty good for $40 I think.
Hell yeah dude! If you ever find the time I'd love to see it, I've never even seen one for sale.
*sigh* missed opportunities, damn you stupid job.
How much does a set of Saudi grey six-color desert usually go for? Did I miss a great deal?
>sold for $25
It really puzzles me when I handle cheap tat, I did a better job in my opinion than some countries producing a sturdy item.
Looks like a simpler, lighter shirt. That had the trousers right? I harder see the trousers. $25 is a steal. I usually see the BDU coats go for about $30-40.
You took your time. Easily the shitiest thing I own is the Pakistani smock.
Sorry, no didn't have the trousers, my mistake.
I had to get up at 4:00 A.M. and drive 2 fucking hours to some shitty meeting with DOE that once again accomplished nothing and just wasted an entire day that could have been spent working through the thousands of pieces of paperwork for some shitty waste management plant. (US gubberment department of energy for you eurocucks)
Oh, it's still a pretty good price but just by about $10 if no trousers.
At 4am I'm usually driving to work. But now that Christmas is over I'm on call.
>I can stay home and snipe the Thai's auctions that end at Oh-God-Thirty in the morning
I have some bad news for you...
Also it only sold for $20.50 (not including shipping).
Don't forget about the Karst parka. Also I got a Czech gas mask from floydsboy. It's going to be a good month.
Also, if I can find out how to not spend my money, another gun from Trench.
It was pretty nice. The stars aligned and I was able to dump a bunch of money into new surp. It was about time, too.
Pls Trench. I can only give you so much of my money!
>TFW 4 days into this eBay Bucks cycle I'm already at $4.35
Jesus where do you guys find this stuff on ebay? With such generic names how do you sort through the other 20 pages of garbage before a good find? Is there a secret list of sellers that I don't know about? God-tier search terms?
>secret list of sellers
Not so much secret, but I find most of my stuff on the same few merchants. I check out eBay a few times a day.
Email me at email@example.com and I'll give you some good ones.
I just do simple searches like
But I also mix it around like;
Some people omit some words so I kinda do a few variations of the same search. I also keep Camopedia open and go down the lists of countries, even the small ones you'd never expect to find stuff for.
That's how I found my Fijin shirt.
Nice! Looks like it fits you perfectly too.

That marpat shirt?
T R I A L S
I forbid you from spending anywhere close to that on some Cadpat clone that you can probably score around a US military base from some troopie in exchange for an Xbox Live card or pills.
I've got some 800mg Ibuprofen still for my sore throat, think those'll work?
That being said, I am thinking of going in for a larger purchase of something rare, just not entirely sure what though.
This one is a lot more intriguing tbqfhdesusenpai.
Appears to be the thinner, tropical variant of their M1952 Cock and Balls used in colonial adventures in Africa. The fabric is not the usual tarp-grade canvas.
Condition is not suitable for me, so a freebie pointer to the community, because I'm a simply nice guy in a cut-throat world.
what about this one, I can't figure out the pattern,. reminds me of the jigsaw stuff.
Hey listen, my wife's cuck is coming over for dinner, so we'll chat next time.
Just got my first real camo shit today. The middle and left I got off some euro site and are a little long but that's ok. How'd I do?
Not bad, what'd you pay? Parkas are supposed to be long so it's alright.
Also what's that on the right? Looks neat.
I saw but all my spending money is in cash form with me or at home. Fug.
>tfw only bright side is when I turn burger dollars back to Canadian dollars I'll have more than what I turned into burger dollars.
I think with shipping it was around $60. The one on the right I found on amazon trying to find something to match my atacs fg pants without spending a shitton of money. Here is the pants and jacket
It's not as thick as my other softshells but it is rain proof, not sure what the technical definition of soft shell is. I'm pretty new to camo any idea what this flap is for? It's inside the hood
Post more shit.. And wonder if I should into useless for posterity, or something
I don't know, all I know is that there should totally be two threads and we should 100% reuse the OP from this thread.
I like seeing colabs with all the different camos. Also holy shit UCP is fucking shit.
You or Sully have it in Spooky sizes? My last trip out to Oaks only yielded burger and McWellfare sizes.
Also.. Will you be getting spooky Jigsaw?
Collabs do look pretty cool.. Even if they on;y highlight what shit Useless is.
Is this the new name for UCP?
I'm looking for S-Long pants and an M-Reg shirt.. For Useless and Jigsaw
>tfw med is slightly baggy an small is too tight for shirts
Kinda sad that I'm in burgerland and don't have all the common burger patterns
Yeah bretty much. It could be worse though we could be on par with the ruble :^)
No its suspended because my paypal doesn't have the money and my non essential cash is all well in cash form.
Florida pic related.
Gotcha. I thought it was weird that you just closed your account.
You know, there's these new things called banks down here in the states. I don't know if you have them in Canada yet, you should check it out.
My banks a canadian bank, I know where my bank card is I just didn't realize I didn't have it until I was on the plane. I can deal with shit when I get back on Sunday til then ebay can fucking suck it.
