Great framing ideas for displaying the insignia. I'm definitely stealing the idea for my room. I've always liked the idea of framing a map, insignia, and other artifacts to show it all off together. I've had my display up for about 2 years now and seeing this has energized me to change it up some. Can't wait to see more.

 

Are you putting together a Somalia SF display as well? I'f so, I'll start you off with an E&E map.


Thanks,

Tom

Matt,

 

This is an incredible display and one which I've really enjoyed viewing. Your room is set up really well with a clear aim and is very pleasing to the eye. Please keep posting.

Great stuff Matt :thumbsup: I would be interested as well to se some close-ups of the SOG uniforms Matt. Would be nice to se a few of the 46th SF also.

May I ask if all your uniforms are named?

Great stuff ,

But why cover up the names on the vintage items .

Just a piece a tape.

 

Considering the public access to forum, we provide alot of information on here.

 

It would be easy to look at "real-deal" uniforms and create some copies and put on our favorite Auction site and sell as 100% real-deal.

 

Thanks, not as much as you-I am trying to catch up though !!!

Matt could you send a close-up of the Starburst patch on Post #50, bottom right uniform. It sure looks like a in country made Luong Phan patch.
