    Here is the 1/C/502nd display I just finished up. All the items were from the same platoon leader. I hope you enjoy it, the photos are not the best.. Paul

    Your display is really cool, great collection. Your platoon leader is a 1st LT?? Do you have his unity??

    The full mannequin and the display case are all his items,so yes the ACU shirt to the right is his also I have a storage tote full of other items. I am not familiar with the KDH carrier. Its a IOTV with a ACU FLC vest converted into a chest rig. Paul

    Here is my recently completed 1/320th 2nd BCT 101st Abn. Multicam mannequin. All the items minus the helmet and plate carrier are his. The plate carrier is a Condor one I picked up cheap until I can find an issue one eventually. The officer wore coyote tan pouches on his plate carrier and all show use and abuse. Enjoy Paul

    3rd BCT 187th Operation Anaconda 2002. Here is my OEF mannequin from that time period, allitems are original including the K-pot with scrim and camo netting, which I have been after for along time. Mannequin has the woodland IBA, with LBV and ALICE equipment. The only thing I want to change on it are the boots as they should be black leather Gortex. Hope you enjoy Paul

    Did you bought this 101st grouping from Dozer? I noticed the similar rig in one of your photos.

    Very lucky! I wanted this great grouping but sadly, lack of fund won't make it happen. Good to know it is in good hands!

    Again, great collection.

    new 187th OEF mannequin

    Post by Baker502 on Fri Aug 12, 2011 7:17 pm

    Here is that multicam set and painted ACH on a mannequin. I added the chest rig until I can find one like his. I painted a suppressed M-4 airsoft with a camo similar to what is on the helmet which was common practice in the recon platoon.. Enjoy Paul

    I bought the legs used and used the torso and arms from another mannequin I had, I think it looks like a legit combat pose.. Thanks for the compliments..Paul
