Very interesting, another one of these "marked-out" kits has just showed up on Ebay:

It would be interesting to find out why or who did this to these kits.

Ben, Actually, you do not print directly on the paper. The paper is basically a mesh with some type of light sensitive, emulsifiable coating. You actually print directly onto a transparency or 20 lb printer/copier paper (just the exposure times change) with inkjet or laser, doesn't matter. You then ...

The instructions may say, but I would not personally suggest using spray paint unless you only want to use the screen once. I purchased some Wally World Acrylic Craft paint, squirted it on the screen and then used a squegee (sp?) to spread the paint around. I think I used a little too much paint, di...

I purchased a special paper from here: http://www.photoezsilkscreen.com/ You actually develop the paper with printed 20 lb paper or transperency as an overlay using direct sunlight. After exposure and development, you soak the paper in tap water for 10 minutes and then rinse the screen. It is actual...

Restoration, Kit, Gas Casualty

Well, as I am sure most are aware, my first 12 Unit kit was a "modified" gas casualty kit. It was a late ware box with the "For Gas Casualties Only" text cleaned off and painted over. http://www.309th.com/84thpics/albums/userpics/10001/unit_1.jpg So, with a little urging from Ala...

Tablets, Water, Purification, Canteen Master Crate

Thought that this might be interesting to some… I recently acquired an unopened, 300 piece case of 100 count Halazone bottles. The case was dated Sept. 1944 on the exterior. Curiosity won me over and the tools came out. So, here is a play by play of the opening of a 300 piece case of 100 count Halaz...

Roger,

Currently I am running the fly without a ridgepole. With the addition of the extra side lines (there are grommets already there), will the vert's hold upright without the stabilizing lines? Or, do I just need to throw together a lightweight ridgepole?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Ben! I was thinking it was possibly an early or late version, but had never seen any photos of this particular kit. As far as the price, I was very happy! Surprisingly, I picked this up off Ebay even and feel like I got a steal, especially with the sulfa shaker envelopes (a variety I haven't ...

Aeronautical First Aid Kit

Well, I picked up another decent kit to add to my collection and for a pretty cheap price for what it included: <$50 shipped. I do have a question about the kit though. It does not look like a typical "aero" kit and has a different marking: "Medical Department USA". Any ideas? ht...
