My small Display

Just went through this entire thread form beginning to end. Very nice to see the changes and the awesome items you have in your collection. Something to admire and strive to achive. With all of the kids gone now, I want to start collecting WWII militaria. My wife has agreed that I can take over one of the spare rooms and make it into a display room. It's empty now, and will take quite awhile before I have anything of substance, but looking at the displays on this forum is a great incentive for me! Now, if I can only determine what I really want to collect... :think:

 

Thank you,

 

JD

Hi!

You really have a fantastic collection, but I am particularly interested in 2nd Lt. Ralph G. Hodgson Jr and his crew because, the Navigator, 2nd Lt. Richard F Hackel, is my uncle. I have been researching his service during the war for several years, so this was very exciting to come across! Are the pics in this display of the actual crew? Do you have any additional information on this crew you may be able to share with me?

Thanks!

Ellen

Added a few new displays to the wall and changed out the WWI uniform with my 45th ID medics Ike.

Hi Stephan,

 

Me like what me sees! :w00t: A lot! Nice job!

 

Now how do you clip all your items to make those stunning pictures of yours? Photoshop?

 

I'm looking for an easy method to remove items from their background like you did in your pictures, but PS takes waayy too long and the result isn't perfect.

 

Sorry for the off topic

 

Nice collection!

 

Cheers

I just love this one.

 

Your whole collection is a great display of American Military History and your ribbons on the uniforms are all in the correct order of precedence.

Found me this nice C 4-23rd Infantry, 172nd Infantry Brigade OD beret today in an antique shop where i've least expected it.

 

The flash is made of two pieces of felt.

Very nice collection!!!Where have you purchase your torso mannequins and the display case?

 

 

Thanks,

 

 

I think i've bought the torsos at a fleamarket and the display is from a furniture store in Germany.

Nice display of a collection. It needs only a part of a room and ideas and it will work, have the same problems with less place for the collection.
