WOW Silvano, I am impressed my friend. Great looking gear!


How did you manage to put on his jacket, shirt, and the boots? I have the exact mannequin, but there is no way I would be able to put double buckle boots on him or a wool shirt.

Thanks Justin !
The shirt is quit large so I was lucky to put it on him and it fitted ! The double buckle boots fit great only I couldn't close them good, onely 1 eyelet is used.
Just keep trying my friend, when you get it the next time will be easy !

I have to say the standard of displays shown here from our brothers across the English Channel (FR, Bob, Silvano) is absolutely immaculate. Bravo, gentlemen! :thumbsup:
