    Hi Nap, just caught up with this, you are certainly doing a cracking job with all the enhancements, they really make a real difference to an already superb bust. I will carry on watching with great interest.

    QUESTION ?..Which nameplate should I put on the front of the base ??? ..the Chindit one looks good ..suggestions welcome !!!!!..both will go on !!

    How about moving the base around 45 deg. Nap, then you have 2 sides at the front you can use.

    Superb work Kev.
    Good effects on the webbing and kit bags.
    His machete is a 10/10 but attaching with a big wingnut might be a mistake .
    Really good skills from you coming to the fore Mate.
    Informative SBS well researched,as always, Thanks for sharing.
