    War Room Display

    GREAT JOB, OF COLLECTING AND DISPLAYING WONDERFUL PIECES OF AMERICAN MILITARIA. (MY PREFERENCE) PLEASE, REMOVE OUR 48 STAR AMERICAN FLAG FROM THE ROUND GLASS TABLE TOP. OUR AMERICAN FLAG SHOULD BE DISPLAYED IN A POSITION WITH HONOR. THANKS GIH
  2. GREAT DISPLAY, THANKS FOR YOUR DEDICATION TO YOUR PERSONAL INTEREST. SHAREING THESE UNIFORMS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED. A NICE WOOL ERA CORRECT 48 STAR FLAG WOULD HELP PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE ACTUAL TIME IN U. S. HISTORY, THAT THIS WAR WAS FOUGHT. GIH
  3. CONGRADULATIONS ON A FINE COLLECTION, PLACED TOGETHER, AND DISPLAYED WELL. YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD TASTE WITH THE OAK/WOODEN FRAMED DISPLAY CASES. I REALLY LIKE THESE HINGED WOODEN FRAMED DISPLAYS, I'VE NEVER SEEN TWO PLACED TOGETHER, (WITH A PIANO HINGE) BUT THEY ARE REALLY PRACTICAL. GREAT JOB, I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HARD WORK. GIH
  4. A GOOD, INEXPENSIVE FILLER IS THE THICK BLUE INSULATION FOAM, USED IN CONSTRUCTION. (SOMETIMES AVAILABLE AS SCRAP MATERIAL FROM NEARBY CONSTRUCTION SIGHTS). USING THESE MATERIALS, YOU CAN MAKE AN IRREGULAR SILLOUETTE AS YOUR DESIRE, USING ADDITIONAL ITEMS. GOOD LUCK, GIH
  5. SCRAP BLUE FOAM INSULATION WORKS VERY WELL, CUT TO DIMENSIONS OF A 20 OR 30 MAGAZINE. THIS FOAM IS ALMOST WEIGHTLESS. IT IS NOT UNCOMMON TO SEE SCRAP PIECES LAYING ON THE ROADSIDE. GOOD LUCK GIH

  8. GREAT IDEA, WITH A SIMPLE CONCEPT. GIH
  9. I JUST BOUGHT AN IDENTICAL SET (SHIRT AND PANTS) IN VIRGINIA YESTERDAY. I WAS ABLE TO EXACTLY MATCH THE TIGER STRIPE PRINT, FROM THIS ONE TO MINE. WITH THE OPINION THAT THIS CLOTHING WAS MADE IN THE 70-80's MY QUESTION, IS THIS AN ORIGINAL PRINT/MATERIAL OR AN EXACT ERA COPY OF A TIGER STRIPE MATERIAL OF THE WAR? I WILL VALUE ANY/ALL OPINIONS, THANKS GIH

    A COLORFUL SUGGESTION TO YOUR DISPLAY: ADD AN ARRAY OF KOREAN WAR IDENTIFIED UNIFORM SLEEVE PATCHES, WHETHER U. S. ARMY, NAVY OR USMC. EVERY COMBAT SOLIDER WILL TAKE PRIDE IN HIS UNIT/DIVISION PATCH, REGARDLESS OF CIVIL WAR OR THE CURRENT ONGOING CONFLICTS. I HOPE THIS WILL BE HELPFUL. GIH
