Absolutely magnificent! Looks like a museum. I would love to have a quarter of those items!

Awsome display! Love all of the named uniforms! I hope I can have a collection this nice one day!

If you keep at it and stay focused you can surpass what I have. I do wish I had started earlier in life, but I enjoy it now. Also welcome to the forum Michael.

I'm considering getting a mannequin to do an Operation: Just Cause display in my room. This thread has given me lots of inspiration. I don't have much of a collection of JC related stuff, yet, but it'll come with time. My closet is only big enough to do a few things with, but maybe a fallen soldier type of display and a mannequin of a basic infantryman will work. Gotta work on my library, some, too...
Nice work on your display, though!

Hello Erwin, most of the uniforms I have on display are named, some have been researched and I even have pictures of 2 of the veterans who wore them. I have learned from fellow forum member cobrahistorian, Jon, that it makes a much nicer collection to have a few named, researched uniforms than many common uniforms. I have made an effort to follow his example. I do have some very nice uniforms that have no name with them, and they display great.
Ditto on this. I will be selling off all my armored uniforms except the couple that are named. I will probably cut the entire collection down to named items only.
And your room doesn't look crowded at all. I think it flows nicely.
