Spent Saturday taking apart the War room after getting home from a Gang investigators conference. Then repainted the walls, then starting to put the War room back together.

The Tan is the same color as the darker tan on the DCU's


Its still a bit of a mess, but as I go through my collection and start getting it displayed, displays will look as such.

The Displays will flow from WWII > Occupation Period > Korea > Cold War (REFORGER/ Checkpoint Charlie) > OEF

Most of the displays will only have one uniform except the Cold War and OEF. the OEF section will have multiple uniforms from myself, and hopefully this winter uniforms from my buddy who was at GTMO, with me in A-stan, and now he's back in A-Stan. The Cold War will have a Fatigue uniform and set of Greens from an MP stationed in the Berlin District with the 287th MP company.

Looking good! :twothumbup: It's nice to see I am not the only one that adds GI Joe type figures to my war room. I have about 30 of em running around the top of the room on a special shelf I build just for them. :w00t:

Looking great.
I just wish I had a large room like that (mine looks more like the back of a medium cargo truck right now :( ).

Looking Good..

Can't wait to see the Berlin MP uniform set up. I work with several retired MP's who were with the 287th in Berlin in the 70's and 80's.. Great looking set up so far...

Thanks Leigh, Im putting the room together bit by bit, I need to get a couple more shelving units for the center of the room and then get some more torso forms to get the uniforms placed on.

Also here is:

My MP liner/ Helmet collection

Sweet brother! Love the color choice for the walls, along with the mix of period items and some "love me" items. I used to have quite a bit of love me stuff out, but gave up the space for my period stuff. Still making sacrifices even after taking off the the boots :lol:

Some other uniforms not pictured earlier


US Navy MAA, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. More than likely a base patrolman, if he was at the Detention Camps it would say JTF-GTMO

LTC Clifton, MP, Was part of Pattons Staff in WWII and was at the Chosin Reservoir in Korea.
