WWII Camouflaged Marine Infantryman display


Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting your hard work...very well done, and very nice stuff! :)

Support our troops...abandoning the War on Terror is not an affordable luxury.

I'm so old, I still call W.W.II U.S. militaria "war surplus".

Very nice! Great detail, I really like the watch...working or not.

Always interested in purchasing items pertaining to the 505 Parachute Infantry Regiment in WWII (82nd Airborne Div.). Please send me a PM if you have something.

Redundant in my compliments but wow this is a spectacular very effectively done display. Looking at these things individually is great enough but to put so much into this mannequin is a real treat to see. You have done a remarkable job and I really enjoyed looking at this thread. I too love Marine Corps items, it's all I collect. Thank you again for sharing this and all the time and effort you put in to allow us to envision in such detail was a Marine from '44ish would have likely looked like in WWII.

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

Just came across this for the first time as I am researching for my own USMC display. I am envious of your camos. They are a little out of my price range right now so I am just going to go with the HBT utilities. Again GREAT work Dennis and thanks for sharing!
