Wonderful display. Love the diversity; much like my collection. I also like how you have the drawers/shelves for display purposes. I have drawers as well but it is more for overflow/storage. It is always nice to look at other people's collections to gain ideas. With that said, I am going to see if I can do something similar with my web gear.

 

Good job. Keep posting as your collection evolves.

You have a great eye for display. Looks like a museum, BRAVO!

 

I've never though much about rations, but that is really cool to see it laid out like that.

Really love those cast heads, a bit more refined than Styrofoam. Nicely done.

Good change of display, looks very good. If you have enough space you could do some experiments and see how your ideas work.

I especially like the ammo bandoleer on the paratrooper field dress,....an overlooked detail most displays always seem to exclude, pouring over hundreds of vintage infantry pictures illustrates the difference between rear deployed infantry ( held in reserve regiments) and the two bandoleered up front line units....Up front GI Joes were first and foremost concerned about ammo or lack of....you need another bandoleer on the up front field examples...a frag or two would also illustrate the seriousness of their situation. Thanks for posting.
