Good impression as usual!
How is the Pig doing?
It's an A&K?

The lack of eye protection scares me.

Knowing your reputation for great impression I'm curious as what is the make of your watch on your arm. Is it a period watch because it seems to be about right for a 1965 timepiece?

Cheers for the replies and feedback guys, always appreciated!

The watch is indeed period specific Borealis, a repro, but accurate. Its a copy of the US army service watch (with a nylon strap for the jungle conditions) that were everywhere in Nam. I got my one for £20 sterling and its being going strong for nearly 5 years now.

Yeah, glasses were off for some of the photos, some posed, some in game.

The A&K M60 is doing very well indeed sHaKal, I had to replace the spring with a less powerful one and upgrade the barrel and hop but its a excellent support AEG: Lots of ammo capacity and range for keeping heads down! Thankfully the design is ludicrously easy to upgrade: one lever to completely remove and access the hop system and inner barrel, and you just remove the butt plate and a screw to change out the spring! Genius.

awesome, and your back is not too shabby either. Makes me kinda wish I went with the m16 and not m4. Didn't notice the watch - good eye.
