I started at 14 as well. 13 years later And I am still jealous of your collection. Good job kid, keep it up and remember that in hard times it is always an investment.

Wow - very impressive!! You have outdone a lot of people and at such a young age!

Did you hand build those mannequin stands? If so, how did you do it??

yes they are handmade. i just used a couple 2x4s and a pillow.

 

they are very stable and can hold alot of gear.

 

the top has a cross bar to support thee webgear.

 

don't worry i have something in the helmet so the wood dosnt damage the webbing.

As a fellow 14 Yr Old Collector, I must say AWESOME collection. Been collecting for 7 Years and as bellasilva stated I am quite jealous :lol:

 

IF you may, could you either post on here or message some directions on how to create the Mannequin. I haven't been able to find a really great mannequin and this is a pretty great one!

Wow that sure is a sweet collection, and I'll have to say like some others here I'm jealous, especially of them hawleys of yours :D, no really great collection! and nice hand made mannequins, I ain't ever thought to build them that way, I thought of building some out of steel but it'd be expensive....and heavy.
