My Mannequins


Recommended Posts

The Capt. sitting down looks great. I don't know about the dude with the black hat.

A take on Gordo from Fury I assume, I like it!

The displays are great! My favorite is the soldier with the top hat. All he needs is an accordion!

 

 

Here are two photos of a medic from the 94th Infantry Division.

Thanks for the positive comments, guys.

 

Jack, the mannequins are sourced from a variety of locations, but generally they do require some slight modifications to the poses and paint jobs to make them suitable, in my opinion. Recently, I've been using a lot of the posable mannequins currently being offered by a company here in Europe called Europe Mannequin. I believe their US distributor trades as Yanks Mannequins: https://yanksmannequins.com/en/

 

The poses and sizes are extremely good for WW2 uniforms.

 

Thanks,

Ben.

Nice collection! Thanks for sharing.

 

I like the tanker with the top hat too.

See the following US Army Signal Corps footage showing some French civilians welcoming 9th Infantry Division soldiers in Normandy, sharing cigarettes and playing around with a top hat. (@ 5:56). The same hat reappears at 6:14 on a lovely young lady.
