    rearranged my Apartment; new displays!

    Post by CamoDeafie on Mon Jun 04, 2012 5:35 pm

    since my brother's got a new place, i gave him some furniture, which freed up space for me to build a cohesive display with one new mannequin and redid a couple displays to better reflect their respective eras; the shelving unit covered in camo holds my extra gear that are not already in the closet with uniforms;
    the complete display; L to R; Barber 82nd ABN/Idaho NG with 1986 LBV,US Army INSCOM unit(Intelligence and Security command) 6 color with Night parka and customized LCE-LC belt with 3 M16 pouches tied to custom M1956 harness and random pouches on it-Mercenary25, remember this!? Classic Desert Storm PASGT/sterile 6-color, LC1 equipment, Strobe light pouch added to shoulder, and Franklin 3 color modified DCU with 2000 contract E_LBV and SAW ammo pouches

    detail of Night Camo display; I took net out of the gear's buttpack and put it on neck area as sweat rag, I do not know what INSCOM did over there, as there are NO information other than who they were..

    detail of Franklin mannequin


    tell me what you think of the display! Smile and yes thats a Norinco SKS resting against the Entertainment center lol

    I like how you use common items like LBV and ALICE gear to create great display. Not too high speed, very old school.

    Good job, in the sample you can find the three standart loadout of the US Army in the 90's and early 2000.

    This makes rethink my situation. I also have put my entire collection on shelves and boxes. And think should be better exposed in the wall or on mannequins.

    I was giving him compliment because I love the old school gear like LC-2 gear but I think I worded it vaguely in previous post. Smile

    three standard loadouts; correct! I DO have a 90s 40mm grenadier vest somewhere, but I am on the look out for more industrial shelves and torso mannequins or suit racks to do more....in one closet i have 7 complete displays on wooden hangers that I can switch out when I feel like it Smile (2 are LBV types, 1 is british DPM, 1 is BHI Omega vest; MOLLE FLC and MOLLE RACK, and a late 70s/early 80s USMC RDF with LC rig)

    Aah I forgot to mention that I remember this custom LBE. Someday I would love to have it back. Would be great for desert storm display. Smile

    hahahaa Merc; I am KEEPING it for now Very Happy am still trying to find info on the unit tho. (INSCOM)

    EDIT: found something about Desert Storm!
    It soon became apparent the post-Cold War world would continue to hold unforeseen and unforeseeable perils. In the unstructured international environment created by the sudden collapse of the bipolar world order imposed by the Cold War, crises could -- and did -- take place around the world. At the end of 1989, the threat posed to American interests in Panama by the country’s narcotics-linked strongman provoked an American military intervention, Operation JUST CAUSE. Eight months later, the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq resulted in a massive deployment of American forces to the Arabian peninsula and the subsequent liberation of the emirate in Operation DESERT STORM. The challenges of JUST CAUSE and DESERT STORM -- successive crises occurring half a world apart and in totally unrelated linguistic environments -- made large demands on military intelligence and appeared to serve as a portent for the future.

    INSCOM successfully met these demands. Its 470th Military Intelligence Brigade had been in place in Panama when that crisis broke. INSCOM’s 513th Military Intelligence Brigade, with a long-standing contingency mission to support U.S. Army Central Command, was positioned to meet Army intelligence requirements when deployment to the Persian Gulf began. Once brigade elements had moved to Saudi Arabia, INSCOM was able to augment the unit by "lifting and shifting" its own assets around the globe. As the situation reached its climax, the brigade’s echelon-above-corps intelligence center was expanded to a full operations battalion and placed in support of the G2 of Central Command’s Army component.
    -source http://www.inscom.army.mil/Organization/History_supp.aspx?text=off&size=12pt

    so; the night camo set up makes sense for INSCOM!
    Mission: The 513th Military Intelligence Brigade deploys in strength or in tailored elements to conduct multidiscipline intelligence and security operations in support of Army components of U.S. Central Command, and theater Army commanders.

    The 513th Military Intelligence Brigade is comprised of four battalions and a task force: 202nd, 224th, 297th, 345th, and Task Force Lightning. Each unit has a unique mission that plays a vital role in the mission of the brigade as a whole.

    The 201st MI Battalion was activated as part of the brigade in 1982. The battalion has been actively engaged in virtually every major military contingency operation since Desert Storm, to include multiple deployments to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, three rotations to Somalia, two deployments to Haiti, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Qatar, Australia, Singapore, Korea, Bosnia and Kosovo.
    it also makes sense if the original seller of the LBE was in Bosnia/Kosovo as relayed to me by MErcenary25 Wink

    hmm this is very interesting! I think i shall be keeping this particular display as is!

    Excellent stuff! I just wish that my man cave was finished so that I could do the same. You've got a nice looking and well thought out display.
