Bollé PILOPSI Goggles

Compatibility with glasses is very promising, hope they work well. The lens being on top of frame is a great design (I have SRC goggles like these) because it gives excellent field of view. Hopefully however it is attached is sturdy because the SRC ones have a dodgy rotating lock system which seems loose so I'm not using them.

They look pretty good for ventilation too - if they have the same anti-fog properties as the Cobras, the extra ventilation might actually stop the liquid build up that the Cobras suffer from. Let us know how you get on with them, please. How much did they cost and from where?

 

One of these bad boys for £5. :P

That's "bad" in the Michael Jackson sense of the word, right? As in full circle...

I've bought myself a Cold Steel Training Gladius - as we're allowed them to "tag" people who are too close. In my eyes a Gladius is better than a knife! Although the hand and a half sword is also tempting me....

Rubber knives are great fun for skirmishing. I once 'killed' a guy in a tower by poking the knife through its gappy floorboards.

not airsoft related but my dad just bought 2 DH frames, a nice pair of forks, 2 mavic wheels, plenty of spare bits. Let the build commence!

 

fair to say money was spent

I've often thought of getting an M4/M16 rubber bayonet for the same reason. Although being of a certain age, my silly side says learning the black art of "Ecky Thump" and attacking with a large black pudding, "The Goodies" stylee, for giggles, would be better (sorry young 'uns, you'll have to Google "The Goodies" on Youtube to understand)!

I've used a hand and a half sword in game once, probably won't do it again anything soon. Very annoying to run with/draw and was overly long.

 

Did get 2 quality kills with it tho and they've earned me a free bottle of bbs 😃

 

Anyhow might get the gladius or the shorter medieval one.

 

 

 

On another note I took a lightsaber to cqb at the weekend, his it in game and wiped it out during the mike Myers game. Best fun I've had In ages running round a dark cqb zone with no loghts and a flowing red lightsaber

keep us updated on that, depended on how much it cost you, I might have a go.

Not going to cost that much to be honest, although it does require me to make the chest armour and the M3 tactical helmet, which is in progress (I'll post some pics when I've got something worth seeing).

 

The helmet and armour are being made from craft foam (20 quid off ebay inc p&p) with some web belts and bits of trim added to them, then there is a drop leg holster attached to the armour (we don't see the pistol much in the movie, so I guess anything which fits my drop-leg holster goes).

 

The MI uniform clothing is pretty basic, it's just a grey short zip-fronted jacket (8 quid off ebay inc p&p) with some black trim added to the collar and sides and some elbow patches in tan added to it, then three unit patches (which I got off ebay for 13 quid inc p&p) sewn onto it and black epaulettes. Under that is a black t-shirt and a black neck gorget. The pants are just plain grey ones with some black trim added along the inside leg (not got those yet, but I expect they'll be about ten quid).

 

The original movie prop boots were in fact just trainers modified with the addition of higher ankle support plus a few velcro straps added, so some lightweight modern US combat boots can easily be modified to look like those. The Mobile Infantry's rifle is the (fictional) bullpup configuration Morita Assault Rifle, which (depending on which soldier was wielding it), is either a full-length Mk1 rifle with an underslung pump action, or a shorter Mk1 carbine version, or a scoped sniper version of the standard rifle, all of which are seen in the movie. Since the Morita is (like the movie itself) a bit of a parody of the rather politically incorrect fascist overtones in the Heinlein novel, it's somewhat comedically over-large (also because it was in reality a fibreglass shell which had a Ruger Mini 14 concealed inside it for the shots in the movie where the Morita was required to actually fire).

 

In practical terms, I would like the load out to actually be usable, so I'm going to make the less stupidly big carbine version of the Morita (which also means I don't have to add the grenade launcher). Looking about for a suitable rifle to modify, I was first considering the recently-made fictional UAR airsoft AEG or perhaps an L85, but I've decided to use the Foreign Legion version of the FAMAS, which is already very close in appearance to the carbine Morita, so it should be a fairly easy transformation to make it look like a Morita without messing about with its functionality.

^^Which is a laudable project and i wish you all the best, but airsoft FAMAS's aren't known for reliability or for the kind of spare parts availability that you'd want in a project gun. I'm wondering if a Type 97 might not be a better starting place? At least you know it will be bomb proof...
