Love the Pacific items - American and Japanese. I don't see a lot of the Japanese stuff in my western NY area but I do keep my searches pretty local.

Japanese items in general are pretty difficult to get hold off these days

 

Thanks

New setup with the Mud brown hand camouflage ! 
Taken an age to collect this Brown painted field gear, by far the hardest to find

Wow! Great collection Dean, I like the USMC full mannequin setups you got there, they are put together just right. Those Camo lids you got there are killer too, makes me jealous! Are they named?

Thanks 

yes most of the lids are named, the hand Camo one is part of the MHS ESB grouping, the other is the William Rogal grouping. The super sixth lid is also named but I’m still trying to read this 

I will crack it one day

here is a couple more Dave from my photo collection, the marines Garand belt and canteen cover seem to have the early thick brown camo ! 
 

Some of the helmets in the photos with the hand camo are just beautiful. The marine on the right looks to have a hand Camo’d medics bag

Is the flamethrower functional?


Well everything is original and there but the cylinders it currently has on it will not pressurize due to 2 holes in them so as it stands and as it will always stand is deactivated.

I’m using a new light for my photos which I think really brings out the little details, here is my HQ co marked helmet, on the side you can see where a spray of blood has hit the side, you can see the droplets perfectly rounded on the cover especially at the front. The helmet is not rusted, I find that rust is more orange, this is a deep Red colour and is a spray. 
 

Cover, helmet and liner are all original to each other, liner is a Mari e jungle liner also marked HQ co

One can only imagine the horrors this lid has witnessed, whether friend or foe.
