    updating my displays

    Post by CamoDeafie on Fri Jan 06, 2012 1:03 am

    decided it was time to change my SF mod DCU guy to something different..so showing Early OEF period; using sterile named USMC dcu jacket and night camo parka with rigger made hat;




    and the 82nd ABN BDU with 86 dated experimental LBV, which has the camo canteen, 2 beat up M16 mag pouches, a PRC pouch in small of back, am looking for a camo IFAK and possibly another camo canteen.



    I will be posting the pics of my next display after tomorrow when I pick up my full-round male torso display piece Very Happy not sure which of my set ups I want to put on it hehe.

    I need a mannequin like that, but I think it would scare the sh*t out of me when I'm taking a late-night piss. Very Happy

    Before my daughter went off to college, I used to place my mannequin right in front of her door at night and it would scare her to death! I thought it was hilarious. She didn't think so.

    USMC didn't use night camo uniform in early OEF. But if you swap the DCU pants to DBDU pants, you would have nice Desert Storm SF display.

    ubershave, true story.... I have mannequin and it took me few days to get used to it staring at me. But one day it started to talk to me and eventually we became good friends. Well, long story short, my loved ones got worried so they sent me to see doctor. I feel better now....

    i dont got choc chip pants...still looking for a good set of 80s contract choc chip pants..and the USMC DCU was the only un-named random combat DCU I got that would fit the gear/time period since my other uniforms are either newer, AIrborne, Flight, USAF, Logistics, QM, Air Defense, 10th Mtn...wait...would 10th mtn DCU work with it?

    You're right that the night camo isn't an iconic look, but it was used.

    You're right, I went and re watched the video I got if from multiple times and it was actually a green square mesh hood thing, but with the light color of his face and the background it looked like night desert camo to me. Sorry.
