  5. Thank you Kat!! Hello Mr.Jerry, That is very kind of you. I'll take you up on that offer. PM sent. Thank You! Semper Fi Phil
  6. Thank USVM, That is great information. She was a WAAC prior to becoming a WAC. I'll have to check again for tag's, I did not see any when I took it out and saw I needed buttons for this one. But having the SSgt chevrons that would put her in the latter part of her service as a WAC. So metal one's for this one. Are the metal buttons the same for male and female uniforms ? Or do I need to look for specific WAC buttons? Semper Fi Phil
  7. Hello All, I was going through my Aunt Annie's uniforms and I guess I missed it, but I have one jacket that dos not have any buttons on it. I think its the worsted wool type These have the eyelets sewn around the holes so I know I can use the type that attached with the retaining rings. The picture is of the same jacket, just looks darker. My question is . Do I need to find the brown plastic buttons or will this use the metal gilded one's for this jacket? Thanks for looking.
  8. Excellent display BBG!! You took it down to the finest details and BAM!!! It looks Awesome!!! I love the tiger paint job on the helmet!!! Semper Fi Phil

  12. Excellent addition to anybody's ECM collection. My first time seeing and hearing about this one. Thanks for sharing it. Semper Fi Phil
  13. Thanks Marty, It was the helmet that Patches posted that broke the camels back and I had to ask. I've done metal work. I know the heat required to braze and silver solder ,but the rank always retains its Silver/Gold finish. Do they Heatsink the rank?? Not having an example to study I thought I would ask the expert here, Semper Fi Phil To hear some were glued is also an interesting method.
