I just painted up another set of Dragon British Webbing

... using Vallejo's Middlestone paint to simulate Blanco KG1. Compare with an untouched Dragon small pack above. You can see how light it is. I'm letting it dry along with the white glued brass tabs. The bayonet and the e-tool are BBI's, suitably modified. This stuff is getting harder to find. No idea what I'm going to do with it. Another Brit para? Another Brit 43rd Wessex Recce trooper? Perhaps another Canadian ... ?

Looks good, Steve!

Hope you pick a 'bash that carries a No. 1 Mk. III SMLE with that sword bayonet...

Re: I just painted up another set of Dragon British Webbing

Some say that the Canadians rarely used Blanco on their webbing. Here is a photo of Canadian Artillery Lieutenant James Montgomery Doohan, of the 13 CAR, taken just days before the Normandy invasion. Note how his belt appears darker than his tunic, so I'm saying KG3.

And, yes, that is "Scotty" from Star Trek!

Re: I just painted up another set of Dragon British Webbing

Now my Lanchester-armed glider-pilot has some kit! Actually, the full kit was stuffed into the rucksack during the flight - he obviously couldn't wear it while flying, and one couldn't just leave it on the floor. The rucksack was discarded as soon as the pilot de-planed and formed up with the other members of the Glider Pilot Regiment - which fought as a distinct unit. They were held in reserve initially south of the Hartstein Hotel.

I gave him a Lanchester SMG since it was initially contracted for as an RAF airfield defense weapon. But most went instead to the RN. Were I a pilot who had access to one, I would bring it instead of a Sten. An added incentive was that it took the Sten magazines and used an Enfield sword bayonet. The pilot-issue Sten was the Mark III version, the cheapest made.

Great reworking of the classic '37 pattern...as for the figure...options a-plenty (cheers also for the 'Scotty' reference). Thanks for sharing, Steve

DML P37 webbing always seems to look better when itís painted.
