Here's a few displays I made in the basement. Most of the Corpsman stuff is brand new today, from a very good friend of mine and couldn't be happier to have added them to my collection. Riker cases are mix-n-match handfulls of small insignia I had in boxes and decided to separate out mainly for aesthetics and not because any of them go together.

Another display table I've had up for a while. Again, some of the stuff doesn't match and is more just a little bit of everything thrown up on the table.

Carving on the Arisaka rifle on that table. I know, I know, "IT'S NOT US!!!" but it's a war trophy from a US Marine, so hope it fits!

Some panoramic shots of the "other" marine uniforms. The big wooden crates in the center of the room are full of various field gear items, from WWI to Present (mostly VN era and OIF era).

Most of the rest of this stuff has been posted elsewhere on the forum, but newer photos and all in the same spot this time.

These two are a 1st MARDIV Cape Gloucester uniform, and a 1920's USMC PFC uniform.

Dan, it appears you have to much old war stuff. I will pm my address and you can send it to me to unclutter your basement. You know all that stuff could be a fire hazard. I will take it off your hands to make your home safer. I am such a nice guy.

 

Seriously nice collection, Chris.
