Here is something new for me. I never focused on some personal items etc. Try to get all of personal, ID items carried by USN or USMC pilot. Here are some of it...

Jerry:

 

A first class display. I congratulate you, knowing how hard this must be for you to assemble in Europe.

 

Glad to hear that your back is improving. I can see that your recovery time has been well spent.

 

And I really like your M1936 pistol belt with the sewn loops for spare .38 Special ammo. Those are very tough to find.

 

Great stuff.

 

Charlie

Thanks Paul and Charlie.

 

Yes Charlie, sitting at home for two months and could not do a lot of activities (like in past two years) bring you a lot of new idea to your head and you tried to do something different:)

 

This M1936 pistol belt with ammo loops is in my collection for a years. I also like it very much. Great rigger modified item.

 

Regards,

Jerry

Pretty groovy Jerry! The creative back drop is what really does it, makes the whole thing pop and come to life. I really like it. You need more down time it appears!

My brother-in law runs a company that makes labels or M3 stickers. They make all those fancy graphix panels for vehicles and all sorts of stuff. Even those peel and stick life size posters you can get of athletes or fantasy creatures or whatever. I pondered the idea of sending him images of ready rooms or flight decks to make posters for walls. By being selective, you have the perfect back drop as if your mannequins are part of the picture but in 3D. Another scenario would be to take a picture you like lets say a TBF crew or VF pilot pending on how many mannequins you have or want, photoshop the individual/s out then assemble your mannequin accordingly to replaced the edited figure. Essential you just reached into the picture and drew the individual out for that depth. Eventually I'm going to send him images of equipment rooms, take down my wall displays, then wall paper my room then re-hang everything. This will give the effect your stepping back in time, of course each wall will be a different representation for variety depending on the theme

Hi Dustin. Thanks for words!

 

Yes I also think about some photo wallpaper of aircraft carrier deck. The ready room will be also a good choice. But this wallpaper in this size are very very expensive here soo I choose a scrore board. But this is very very good idea.

 

Something like this was made at my Museum exhibition. But this is photo of Japanice bomber planes.

 

Good luck,

Jerry

Fantastic stuff Jerry, as always!

 

A question: would be possible seeing a best shot of the funny drawing with the old man with the sickle and the naval pilot?

 

Thanks in advance and still my compliments!

Hello Jerry, nice to hear from you again!

 

Nice sketch, well draw and humorous! Thank for sharing.

 

My pilot is almost ready to take off, thanks, lacks only of a shoulder holster (with loops rigger made)! Actually there's some things that are not proper for the Us Navy pilot: the army parachute and the russe shade "polished" shoes...

 

Best,

Tiger

Some amazing displays and items there! But only ww2...

 

So, I would like to get up a little jump in the time and show you 50/60s Navy gears... :) And I'm sure that all of us really would like if any other collector would display some other items from this time.

Was this guy from VF-41 an ex Air Force F-101 pilot? I noticed the ADC patch and the Voo Doo patch. Very interesting.

At the end of the 50s, the firsts USN RIO initially were formed by USAF. At less for a part of their training. He was one of them (35th RIO to fly in the Phantom II in 1961). Later, he had noted in one of his logbooks some hours of flight in the USAF recon aircraft F-101 "Voodoo". Then, Lt Richards was a RIO instructor in VF-101 before joining the VF-41 "Black Aces" and his last unit, the VF-84 "Jolly Roger".

His stained fligth suit worn over Vietnam (before the Navy issued green flying suits, Navy crews were staining their kakhi suit.)
