So I thought I'd share the following PSA to my comrades here
DO NOT get on Amazon with a Prime account and search for Tamiya modeling products. It's bad for your wallet. Ugh.

my Prime account is affiliated to my GF's .. so all her favourites and recommendations are Warhammer / paint related ... our Netflix account is in her name so all the recommendations are suddnly "Full MEtal Alchemist" related, so Manga everywhere so she can't find "Twilight" or other guff

I searched for gas masks on ebay cos everyone in the office was sick and I was joking you can get a cold war gas mask for about £15, found one of the full head rubber ones, lets just say my recomended searches have gotten... interesting

Speaking of gas masks, you know what’s annoying? You can’t find current issue us gas masks surplus ANYWHERE
I like the design and had prescription inserts for one (being nearsighted in basic means you get all kinds of cool prescription stuff, and BCGs); but could never actually find one to buy

I have some experience of this .. most UK Army stuff is "issued" like weapons and gas masks and other non-clothing like bergens and at one point goretex weather proofs .. it's illegal to sell "issued" gear .. I think the US has a similar stance .. see here https://www.stripes.com/news/seller-beware-all-military-gear-not-right-for-ebay-1.32343
I don't think this applies to Replica obviously

what you can do is find out who makes it
the Mfg of most military gear will sell anything they can to the civilian market because its free profit
heck you can even get the full interceptor rig without the plates legitimately off the manufacturer as a civilian, its just the plates and some of the patches that are restricted
this is especially true of protective gear like NBC stuff because they want to sell it to the first responder market, and the law makes no real distinguishment between fire departments and ordinary people
just about the only 'infantry issue' stuff you can't get are things made in house by the army itself, strike plates they use, some sections of the NBC kit (mostly the stuff in the injector kits) and the IR-reactive pattern patches

what's more amusing is that usually the stuff available on the open market is actually better
because single-bidder and lowest-bidder contracts

@WindstormSCR so very true - it was more of a “I have a thing designed to be used for this specific thing so I want that specific thing” lol
But yeah I know if I ever build an AR it’ll be so beyond milspec it’s kinda hilarious

@amis92, not sure that #2554 is a bug, it's a quirk of how BS handles different types of modifier.
The Flamestorm points were set to increment on instances of "Agressor", Boltstorm are on "model". BS handles the updating differently.

Sure sounds like a bug to me... But we may call it inconsistency if you wish ;D
I kind of want to mark it as BS bug to have reference in future of such quirks etc. We don't really have a list of them. Some are more popular and well-known, others not so much.

ok, I've relabelled it as a BS bug.

I'd say the "don't set hidden and modify to unhide" instead do it the other way is one of "well-knowns" (or was it the other way around ;D )

yeah, that was an old bug on iOS. if something was hidden by default, you couldnt unhide it with modifiers
