    Post by michelwijnand on Sun Dec 11, 2016 10:23 am

    Fixed up an old loadout I once made, changed out a lot of stuff, and wanted to make it more complete, so here's what I came up with, hope you like it.

    Gear:

    M64 summer uniform
    M64 foul weather/winter uniform
    M51 (M1) helmet with camo net
    M71 belt
    M71 suspenders
    1 Nylon and 1 plasticized M71 magazine pouch (cheated with this a bit, 1 pouch is for FAL, the other for FNC)
    Late type C FN FAL bayonet
    M71 bayonet frog
    M71 canteen in pouch
    M71 multipurpose buttpack
    M71 tent halve in pouch
    M51 gasmask in bag
    M71 backpack
    M71? sleeping bag
    Trifold shovel in pouch
    Laced boots (M??)

    Nice complete kit - are there any markings on the bayonet and/or the sleeping bag?

    Thanks guys!
    Legendary is a big word though, some older kits are (mostly were, I fixed most mistakes) pretty rubbish, and I've had to do some extensive fixes, as is the case with this loadout, which is almost a completely different kit than it used to be.

    And the bayonet has no markings whatsoever. I bought it as Belgian a while ago, from a Belgian seller.

    The sleepingbag probably has a label inside, but I haven't unrolled it at all since I was lazy. It's the standard type sold on 2ehands.de by seller Polytra.
