    Iraqi Displays

    Post by cybercarnage on Fri Jan 16, 2015 11:54 pm

    Hi everyone,

    It just dawned upon me that I haven't shared a bunch of pictures of some full displays I made about a year ago. Let me know if you have any questions!

    Waw, I do not collect Iraqi stuff at all...but your complete displays have a really nice looking indeed ! I really like your mannequins, they do their effect.

    I am on phone at moment so I can't get link through ebay app but you can search "sports mannequin". The seller is mannequinmaven. There are few different poses with same head scuplt, including kneeling with arms for rifle and pistol stance. Those are just perfect for displays of OEF SF.

    The rifles are kit builds. They make some really killer kneeling ones, and radio operator ones. Here is my Vietnam Green Beret display. I had to take the radio off because it was too heavy, but you can see it to the right.


    I really like to put a lot of effort into making good displays, as I think well displayed collections are superior to complete collections that arent displayed at all.

    Connor, I absolutely agree with you that displayed collection are better...I've kept my collection in boxes for years because I did not have mannequins...Now problem is solved, I purchased a lot of mannequins that permit to display my collection. However, we can not fing such cool mannequins as yours (I mean, the ones that can have rifles, etc). They are not available on the european market, and purchase them in the USA will probably be too expensive because of shipping price...too bad because their looking is excellent.

    From what I've heard, there are a lot of really nice dewatted weapons in Europe. Perhaps the laws are different in Belgium, but there are a lot of dewatted AK's that could look good as a "captured piece" with a US display! The shipping for these is really expensive even here in the US but it's worth it!

    Here's one more I found on my computer.

    Iraqi Special Forces. He's sporting a set of the ultra rare Tetranike body armor used in the Saddam era.
