Thanks @bigwamfor the prompt follow-up and inspection.
I have four quick points for clarification please:
1. Replacement pouch - I plan on buying the (below) black leather MP-40 three magazine ammo pouch to replace the belt-mounted ammo pouch - before I commit to buying this, please confirm if this colour/style is acceptable? I take it then that the brown shoulder-mounted canvas pouch is acceptable and can remain in place? Please confirm if this is the case;
2. Painting parts of the survival pack: understood - the two seed trays and the two bottles are to be re-painted blue/grey. Please confirm if the blue funnel which sits directly below the radio (see my pack pic) also needs the blue portion to be blue/grey as well?
3. Action pic - yes, noted. I will upload a different (and far more interesting) action photo shortly - this I expect should not delay approval of the kit in the meantime - please confirm;
4. Re-submit pics: can I simply re-post the photos of just the replacement parts for approval/inspection? In this case, the pouch will be slipped on the belt and photographed flat on the floor and I will provide a fresh picture of the complete backpack once re-painted.
By way of heads-up, as much as I would like these items changed, sourcing the items from abroad will take some time as I live in the Middle East, but I will respond as soon as the work is done.
Looking forward to your replies so I can ordering.
