http://www.stewartsmilitaryantiques.com ... 4f79d9a344

Great site for lots of well priced reproduction kit.

http://www.atthefront.com/

Again abit of kit from At The Front, not as cheap as some but they do have some good special offers sometimes

http://www.geocities.com/souvenirsotp/p ... niform.htm

Haven't personnally bought anything from these guys but the stuff doesn't look to bad

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/ww2militaria-k ... idZ2QQtZkm

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/ww2militaria-k ... idZ2QQtZkm

Some of Keith's stuff is quite good, other bits are just god dam aweful, once you know what your looking at you'll be able to spot which is which :wink:

Yeah it is a right pain, but i can't see him changing his policy any time soon.

I've been rather Jammy over the last couple of years and managed to get quite abit of kit off Nakata including, helmet, dress cap, balaclava, tropical shirt and shorts, 2 shelter halves with poles and pegs, riflebelt set and a type 94 holster and its all spot on for accuracy and quality, not to mention price

Hessen Antique recently obtained a nice selection of Japanese Army uniforms and equipment from a recent film production. Many of the items are Nakata quality. Here's a link to the Japanese kit page.

Hello all,
Speaking of repro gear, kits, etc, where can I find a good repro of a Japanese canteen/waterbottle with carrying harness? Also, speaking of Nakata stuf, I was under the impression that Stewart's carried Nakata stuff.
Thanks,

Found this shop on ebay.
Seems to be doing a similar range of Japanese leather equipment as HKK did...

Im just after a little up date as to who manufactures repro japanese kit.

Im atfer some items for our over run Japanese position, USMC display.

As I know nothing im just after some general advice as to what I should be looking for.

If we can get the US side of things right I want to get the Japanese side right as well.

Cheers, Jon

Anything that could have been left behind Ryan, :lol:

Items such as bags, packs, canteens, blankets, mess items, helmets, jackets, insignia.

All the basics really. Any help would be great.

Cheers, Jon

Hi mate,

Right then, for items like the packs, haversacks, waterbottles etc have a look at http://hikishop.net/army-field-gear-c-3 ... pla5csm7e7

They also do the repro uniforms if you want jackets lying around etc

Things like helmets, Hiki also do them but if you want to save abit of money there are cheaper repros on ebay but the added postage would make them more than the hiki if your going to do a biggish order from him

Mess kits, again available off Ebay, correct pattern but the colour is wrong, only $12.99 each though so well worth it
http://cgi.ebay.com/WWII-IMPERIAL-JAPAN ... 4aaa222d1a

Blankets, no repros have been done to date and originals are around the £100 mark. I have got some Japanese blankets for sale, not 100% convinced they are military ones but they are Japanese and of the period, look like late war production to me, priced from 20 to 30 quid

No Repro Japanese maps that i know of but i do have some originals that would be available to copy if anyone has access to a decent sized scanner etc

I have been asked to get details of the japanese ammo crates for someone else, when i get a chance to go and photograph it and measure it your welcome to the details aswell but at the moment i can't give an exact date as to when i'll have them available

If you need anything eslse specific let me know and i'll probaly be able to source it for you mate, or if you need any details on Japanese kit or set ups etc let me know

Thanks for the help there Ryan, I will have a look on ebay now. Any particular jackets or equipment types to go for that are suitable for the entire war, 41-45?

As for the crate, any time thats suitable for you, would like to have it done for tankfest in june if possible and same goes for the maps, would be useful to have anything for the display.

Most of the stuff from Hiki your pretty safe for the period they were facing the Americans

Uniform wise again, most of Hiki stuffs is pretty safe, if you want a tunic the type 98 he does is the most common, or you could just go with the half shirt as its a damn site cheaper if its just to go on a display.
Since we're not allowed at tankfest, (we're too nasty you see) if there is anything you really want on the display, depending on what you wanted to do with it i could probaly be persuaded to lend some kit to aid your display

Hi Ryan,

Been loking around thanks for the help, its slowely coming together.

Why arent you allowed at tankfest, its being run by a different team this year if you didnt know?

We are just looking to have items in the trench that wuld have been left behind after we had over run the position. Anything to do with an mg position and a small cp is what we are looking at doing. Anything you could help with would be fantastic. If you are able to lend us anything, how wuld we get it from you?

Cheers, Jon

Its not the team that doesn't like us, The museum, along with EH and EventPlan group us in with German Camp guards etc

Depending on the size of stuff i can post certain bits to you if you want, along as you guys cover the costs etc
