Renfield, an excellent cross section of uniforms. The one shown at the right is one not often encountered as it is the early regulation AAF officer's tunic (less waist belt). Another goodie is the tailored Ike jacket with the instructor's wings on the lower right sleeve. If you are looking for officer uniform shirts for these, I have some available (prefer to trade). Sorry, but I am very limited on ties. I really like your bullion 8th AAF patches! Jack

For the tops of those torso displays, I've had very nice results with black crushed velvet under the uniform tops and over the necks of the displays. You can pick up a yard ot two from any fabric store. I drap the fabric over the torso stand, mark it with chalk, and cut it out. I use stainless steel "T" pins (also from the fabric store) to hold the velvet on the form while I put the uniform on it. I don't worry about hemming or basting the edges of the cut cloth, but you could if you were bothered by stray threads, etc getting on your uniforms.
Post some more pics as you add to your display.
Thanks for sharing,

Very nice display room you have there and I expect it will only get better. Thanks for the following pics, you read my mind as I was hoping to see a close-up of both of these. Thanks for posting. :twothumbup:

And on a personal note , Man this is the 21st Century, you don't have to stay in the closet anymore. Be proud of your mauve carpet and man dolls (as my wife calls them).... :laughing1:

I have some other nice uniforms I bought before I found what I wanted to zero in on. This is a nice Ike, I have the pants, shirt,tie, and belt. I have the mans small Bible with his name and unit in it. I just do not have the space. Nothing new there.
