French Sam, congratulations. You have A LOT of history in that room ... many rare artifacts.

 

I like the fact that you mixed OD with forest green on your seated Navy Corpsman. Since the service breeches and trousers wore out twice as fast as service coats, I suspect that when OD was first introduced to the USMC in France, there must have been quite a few Marines wearing both colors. I've yet to see it in photos, but a very nice detail nevertheless!

One of the best displays ever. There is an artist who visits this forum that makes her manikins even more life like with glass eyes. Not taking away from your display as it looks awesome!! Well done!

As impressive a display I have ever seen outside of a museum. Superbe! Hopefully in 2018 I'll get that tour!
