The Bayonet for Kar 98k
This is the standard Kar 98k bayonet that comes with the figure.
It can be removed from the scabbard ( and I guess it will fit the Kar 98k Rifle that comes with the Infantry Soldier) .
It slides into the Entrenching tool but in real it comes with a frog (thanks mr. Jim Woods) but it's not included so (ofcourse) I decided to build one of my own.
To make it , I used the same material as on the Y-belt
This is how it looks when the bayonet is inserted, but ofcourse it's not finished ....
Now it's complete. I added the little "retaining belt" to secure the bayonet, and as usual, I painted the stiches white.
In addition, I painted the handgrip of the bayonet in a "chocolate" color. The material officialy used was called "bakelit" which was the predecessor of plastic, but some bayonets were equiped with real wooden handgrips.
I don't know why Dragon forgot to make the frog cause everything else seems to be complete on the figure.
Then , ofcourse , customizers like me would be out of a job..... and where would the fun be then.........................
