Normandy Batlle GI


Recommended Posts

Hello to all

 

The series continues : A Normandy Gi ... you choose the division ...

 

I love the HBT pants + M-41 jacket combo. The mismatch is nice and oftenly seen on the weeks after Dday.

 

I also have put the pants off the pants, also very popular among tricky Gi's ...

 

All Authentic exept the Garand which is a prop

 

Same situation, i'll have to use my saw for the feets ...

 

I have others mannequins but they're not as good as those ones to me

That could work quite well, a pair of boots (even if they are small), unlaced next to the GI with the leggings also unlaced in his lap or on the ground, and holding his socks.

Just buy some surplus US Navy boondockers for the footwear, not accurate, but at a glance they'll be reasonable.

 

Very nice display!

Looks verry nice Nicolas !

Perhaps you could put some ammo crates next to the chair? Or let in look like he is changing his socks would be a great idea also like said before.

Cheers,
