  1. Hey Ronnie! Came across this thread again and still in awe of your collection. Any cool finds since last posting??
  2. You could get creative and add your own lighting, either in the form of LED strip lighting or LED push lights. Here are a few older threads that may spark some ideas: https://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/267290-led-lighting-for-display-cases/&tab=comments#comment-2149853 https://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/116473-another-display-cabinet-lighting-project/&tab=comments#comment-869300 https://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/272210-neat-uniform-display-case-idea/
  3. Nice to see life brought back into it! Love the M26 jacket, best looking dress uniform IMO.
  4. Your post made me want to look up more about this guy and boy what an incredible wartime experience he had! Amazing that you acquired this Ace's uniform. Is it actually ID'd too? https://acesofww2.com/USA/aces/tilley/
  5. Really like that latest mannequin, more of a ghostly, shadowy vibe. Where is it from?
  6. Love these mannequins! Any updates?
  7. Yep repro, I have their WWI haversack and t-handle shovel cover. Any chance you'd sell the cartridge belt and aid packet?
  8. My grandpa also served in GHQ in occupied Japan immediate postwar and he wore two adjutant general disks on the lower collar of his IKE with two US disks on top.
  9. Nice collection area Morrosch! Quick question, where is that sitting mannequin from?
  10. Looks 100% original to me. I've never seen that maker mark/quality within the reenacting realm.
  11. Yeah I guess it makes sense why all the furniture in classic haunted houses are draped in white sheets. Though if you do the same with your mannequins someone may mistake them for ghosts!
  12. Nice to have a complete uniform in great condition like that! Will display very well. That wool shirt though is of WWII era, most likely the son's? That WWI mounted canteen cover is somewhat of a rarity, especially with an intact leather strap. Is a canteen cup included as well? And not sure if you know but that American Legion disk was to be placed next to the veteran's grave.
  13. That has got to be one the best WWI 1st DIV groupings ever! And that hate belt is incredible!
  14. Great set up so far with quality items! What's the background on the ID'd WWI 1st DIV uniform?
