    Current status of things...

    Post by Plunket75 on Wed Mar 19, 2014 1:45 pm

    I wanted to show you guys the current status of my new basement focused on the 101st Airborne.  I still have a lot to do but I can't help but do a little display of what I can find and can put together.  There's a lot more to come, but as of right now I like where its going.  






    UCP-delta and multicam...


    My new multicam dressed Soldier...a work in progress


    A shot of the old and the new...101st Airborne in Normandy and the new Multicam deployed to Afghanistan.  A lot has changed in 70 years...

    Great collection; I really like using the mannequins; it gives the display some personality. Thanks much for sharing these pics!

     Great displays, sir. Pure quality!

    In the first picture, do I spy an uber-rare 101st ABN modified DCU?

    Thanks for the comments guys. As I said I still have a long ways to go with setting up the basement but in the mean time here are few more...

    My small OEF/OIF group, a work in progress.  


    Early ACUs with early green patched ACU ACH helmet covers...


    Close up of the two helmets...both are 506th helmets with different style clubs, the one on the right is for the engineer element in the brigade.


    Here is a close-up of the mannequin with the ACU KDH plate carrier and combat shirt...


    nkomo, here is a closer shot of the modified 101st DCU.  This only has the pocket sewn on the left sleeve.  The jacket is fully patched with both pathfinder and air assault wings...

    Just a small update; been doing some work on my current OCP dressed Soldier.  Added a well used groin protector, a PVS14 (Dummy) and some commo gear.

    Tom, sorry for not getting back sooner.  The sensors are part of a S.O. Tech trauma sensor.  I have only seem photos of 3rd BDE, 101st Soldiers actually wear these in Afghanistan.  So these may have been a test or prototype item.  These were made to go hand in hand with the interior helmet mounted sensors to help diagnose body trauma of wounded soldiers.  I have only seem these come out of Ft Campbell, so I would assume they were only issued to units in the 101st.

    I've got one with the sensor and it came out of Campbell as well. There were also multiple others with the sensors as well that I didnt pick up.

    Wow, great setup, I'm reworking my room to put in some manikins and I really like your method with the standing ones in the back and legless in the front, I'll have to use that (once i get enough stuff to need to of course)
