Start of my USMC collection

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I want to share the start of my USMC collection.

I always was interested in the Pacific war and just aquired some things to beginn with this theme.

 

My main interest is the early war in the pacific. I know there's not everything correct to this display as I bought the false M1941 haversack but I will look for an early one yet.

The mannequin is also a bit too tall for the M1942 camo suit.

 

To the gear:

Regarding the M1 helmet, only the shell is from WW2.

The M1 cartridges belt is not stamped with USMC but I hope to replace this soon.

 

Also a nice P41 jacket is on the way to me.

 

Here in Europe it's not too easy to get USMC gear, but for now I am happy with my guy. :)

 

Best regards,

Lukas

You're off to a pretty good start, thanks for sharing! Nothing wrong with having place holders until you find better examples. It wouldnt be as fun if you got everything all at once

Rough outs and leggings will fix your length problem. :)

Nice display!


Thank you to all that have served our country and to your families that have sacrificed without your presence at home. Thank you to all that have given their lives for my freedom and to their families that suffer. May God bless you!

Yeah, of course. But I will change the mannequin by time as the coverall is too tautly downwards ^^

 

Best regards,

Lukas

Quite a hard fight with the P41 suspenders and the backpack for the first time...
