You've probably seen it, but http://www.ww2airsoft.org.uk/ has some pretty nice kit guides on there.
I've considered starting collecting some WWII gear myself but I imagine it'll take a while for me to get a whole loadout together

i reckon it will take me a while to get the gear together too.at the moment i have a reproduction heavy reversable combat jacket,lightweight pull over smock and helmet cover in the german heeres splittermuster 31 pattern and[while not exactly ww2 repro] us style bdu combats in the same german camo pattern and modern swiss combats and shirt / light combat jacket [again not exactly ww2] in a camo pattern that is clearly based on waffen ss leibermuster

Ah no, As a brit i think i should stick to my own side, plus it will be fun to hunt Chris from MIA.

Plus you have to love the ww2 airborne look and the hip shooting sten... (sorry see bridge too far, far, far to many times, connery/hopkins-tastic)
