Hi Jerry,

Thanks for another authentic reconstruction. I appreciate your attention to detail. You look like you just stepped out of one of the crews:

Those USMC PBJ-1H squadrons are often overlooked, but their Mitchells with the radar directed 75 mm cannons were an awesome weapon. Can you tell us about the white label, or marking on the top flap of your E-17 kit? Thanks again! Regards, Paul

Thanks for words about my imperssion and another cool photo....Nice that only one person appreciate it :) I like so much these crews... The white point on top of E17 is only paintwork in square:((( Im having idea for new impression but, will take a lot of time to make it:))) Maybe You will make another one :)

Another shot of VMB-613... Im curiosity why on most of crew pics only two guys were wearing green nylon flight suit... They are pilots???

last one: lieutenant:RICHARD DOSSELO from VMB-611... noticed that he is wearing M668 flight suit ( round collar and two chest pockes and pencil pocket on left arm)

enjoy,

Jerry K.

Hi Jerry,

That's an interesting observation about the green nylon suits. Since it was a newer item of flight clothing at the time, perhaps it was issued to officers (pilots) first? Regards, Paul

Nice Jerry! Thanks for these very good photos and your representations! I love particulary your Nylon suit with plate name and rigger pocket for the knife. Impressive! The 1945/46 USN pilot seems to be less collected than the 1943/44 period I think. It's really seems to be an authentic pilot from these years! :thumbsup:

Very rare seeing Nylon flight suits in ww2 (on your ww2 pics).

Thanks for comments Bebel...

I like both era of pilots early or late(45)... I think in late war you can show more items like all kind of survival and rigger stuff:)))

 

The best regards,

I'm still dumbfounded as to where you found all of the rarer WW II Naval Aviation items because I haunted military, gun and antique shows and put out want Ads and interviewed USN aviation vets for over 17 years and never saw the really rarer items that you have in your collection. Thanks for sharing the pictures with all of us collectors.
