  1. I recently had them listed on there as repros but had a couple of people message me on there saying they were originals. so I pulled the auction until I could confirm. I originally got them at a thrift store where I found several sets for a cheap price in a pile of uniforms. So I bought them and as I had questions about them I listed them as repros.
  2. Ok. That seems to fit together. I was unaware of those repros. The only ones I know of was Moore Militaria's and those coming from SOF in England and they are far better quality than any of those.. Thanks for the heads up.
  3. That is what my gut told me but I just was not 100% sure and needed to make sure my eyes were not fooling me.
  4. I have a set of 1st Pattern Tropical trousers I need some opinions on as far as if they maybe originals or repros. I have several sets of repros and I also have a few original sets as well . These however have stumped me. If they are reproductions they are not like any that I own or have seen and are very close to almost identical my originals but I have a seed of doubt and wanted some other eyes on them to see what others might have to say. https://flic.kr/p/2kp4XjR
  5. Just signed on to this site and saw your post. I had not signed on in a while. If you have a set of USAF harness fittings I would be willing to do a trade. I am also looking for a Sear Key. I am missing one for the initiator on the lower right side of the seat,
  6. Thanks for the info......I appreciate it..... I am only missing a few small things from my seat and that I am trying to track down. I am going to have to try and find the manuals for it at some point.
  7. I have a CNU-111/P survival kit for my MB Mk H7 ejection seat but it is missing the lapbelt strap for the right side. Does anyone have a picture of what the part of the belt that connects to the right side looks like so I know exactly what I am looking for? I know it has to have a different connection that the one on the left side.
  8. Yea, It is in great shape and the guy said it is exactly the way it was when they pulled it from the plane.Its cool also that its the pilots seat and not the Aft seat too. I have looked up the history of the aircraft and it was taken out of service in 1996 and used as a target drone over the Nevada test range. I grew up around F-4's at MacDill AFB when I was a kid and my grandfather was still in the Air Force. Its always been my favorite 60's fighter. I was so happy to be able to own a seat from one. Just need to track down the few things its missing which are small items but seem to be diffi
  9. I just acquired this Ejection Seat from an USAF F-4 Phantom. I have always wanted one and could not pass up the opportunity to get it. It is pretty much complete for the most part. It is missing a few small things like the green Oxygen knob and one of the lap belts on the survival kit for starters. I also want to replace the cover for the lumbar back pad. It is in bad shape. The padding is good but the cover is shot. I am also going to have to find a manual for it. I have been able to attach some of the parts and figuring out where they go by looking at pics but I can only go so far with that
  10. The one in this post is identical to the one that I have posted... http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/217249-philippine-campaign-field-blouse/
  11. It is very similar to the British coats for sure. But it has some differences also. It also looks very similar to Marine officers cotton tunics worn in China that I have seen. When I first saw this tunic that is what I thought it was...
  12. The buttons are cloth covered (as cab be seen in the pics I posted) There are several examples of this same exact type coat ID'ed to US Soldiers (even on this site) that served and fought in the Philippines . It my understanding they were contracted out and made by a company in Hong Kong by the U.S. quartermaster in the Philippines.
  13. Cool... This one has a name written inside of it. I need to see if I can figure out what the name is and see if I can find any info on him ....
  14. Here is something I stumbled across that when I first saw it I thought it was a USMC "China Marine " Officers summer tunic but as is obvious there are many differences. After digging I realized it was a Philippine Insurrection issue tunic. Anyway I thought it was a cool find and thought I would share it here....
