    Hey everyone.

    I thought it was about time to start documenting my collection.

    Sorry about the photos' poor quality. My camera is a tad bit out dated.

    Feel free to ask any questions! I'll provide more information once I'm finished uploading the pics.

    Thanks,

    Artur

    My collection Jkvjb4 My collection 24vtbw7 My collection Dr9ffd

    Republican Guard uniform. The first and only example I have. The group came with the beret, shirt, trousers, and pistol belt. Just received the set a few days ago and I love it already!

    My collection 2qdaq1t My collection M915rm

    Airborne beret and canteen cup brought back by the same guardsmen. I actually owe a large part of my collection because of him. I'll refer to him as "Joe" (G.I.Joe, just trying to respect his privacy).

    My collection W9v1pi My collection Bintlc

    My post war issued helmet. The camo net is loose, I think that it's a size too big. Either that or it was stretched. Any ideas?

    My collection 33a4e1i

    A switch to the opposing forces, some DCU items from OIF.

    My collection 2yxg137 My collection 2ilogte

    25 ID/ 108th Air Defense Brigade DCU. It was patched up but never used. Compared to the other DCU, the colors on this one are very bright.

    My collection 30wbiip My collection 2me97yf

    A nice and honest used and abused 20th Engineer Brigade top. Too bad the name tab and ranks were taken off. I'm thinking maybe it was used 2004/2005. Any ideas?

    The general was a member of MACV-SOG and later commanded Delta Force. You can find some amazing information about his accomplishments online.

    I found all three special warfare coins at a local flea market. There were about 5 more (all European command generals). I think the seller found the coins in a storage locker. I didn't have enough money at the time and could only buy 3.
