Thanks Erwin for the praise, but i'm not in that kind of career. I'm in the military myself and do this kind of art as a hobby.

 

Here is a black beret for the 2nd cavalry, that was worn in the 70's here in Germany by the cav troopers.

I took IMPERIAL QUEST's (Steven) advice for ryker displays and made this little one.

Thanks Steven,

I was never a great friend of ryker mounts for display purposes, just for storage.

But your ideas are great for this kind of displays.

Yep, I wasn't either. I actually started using these as an economy measure. I figured that with the money I was saving on framing, I could buy a lot more items. After a while, I really started liking the results I was getting, and I never gave shadow box frames a second thought.

This section is without a doubt my favorite part of the forum and Rattle, your collection is one of the threads I keep looking at over and over. Your displays are beautiful and your images, well to say they are phenominal would sell them short. Thanks a lot for taking the time to make and post those images and sharing with all of us what a quality collection is.

 

Cheers,

Jeremiah
