The amount of detail on those displays is amazing, you have everything right down to the eggshells on the barn floor. Really makes you feel like you're taking a quick trip back in time. Bravo!

Great display! Love the mannequins and that BAR!

Where did you find those kind of mannequins? As usually all you see are those standard standing mannequins with zero attitude.

"When you initially attacked for seven days and nights without halting for rest, you met and defeated twice your own number. Your advance required the enemy to turn fresh divisions against you, and you in turn hacked them to pieces as you ruthlessly cut your way deep into the flank of the "bulge". Your feats of daring and endurance in the sub-freezing weather and snow-clad mountains and gorges of Luxembourg are legion; your contribution to the relief of Bastogne was immeasurable. It was particularly fitting that the elimination of the "bulge" should find the Yankee Division seizing and holding firmly on the same line held by our own forces prior to the breakthrough. I am proud of this feat by you as well as those you performed earlier. We shall advance on Berlin together." -- Major General Willard S. Paul, commanding general of the 26th Infantry "Yankee Division on February 1, 1945

These kind of mannequins have been produced by Hindsgaul in the 80's. Some of them are scarce because many collectors are looking for them.
