    I love it! Using stones as base is very creative! Out of curiousity, why is VN era lid there? Unless I'm mistaken, some of units actually used it in DS?

    Your absolutely correct James, the Saudi forces in GW1 wore US M1's with "Beach side" Mitchell covers out, they also wore German Helm 1 ( M1956)lids too, with the same covers!!

    So Mitchell covers are very appropriate for GW 1 displays Wink
