Default BW mannequin

I recently acquired a half mannequin and thought it might liven up the forum a bit to display some BW \ BGS kampfanzug from the 1950's through to the early 1980's. Nothing exceptional, but it's it gives a good impression of the overall appearance when displayed on a mannequin, or half mannequin.
Unfortunately no filzlaus, but hope you enjoy the timeline.

The 50% mannequin is compensated by your 100% effort.
Well done .

Well done Sir.

I appreciate your efforts. I especially like the use of the dress hats with the field uniforms in the officer set-ups.

I've included a "felt louse" display to complete the set.

Many thanks,
TJ

Thanks for all the feedback.
For continuity I need to complement my collection with some 'feldlaus' , but never seem to see it fo sale now. I seem to come across more splittertarn than 'feldlaus'

Apologies--but before I get picked up on it up, I should have written 'filzlaus', not 'feldlaus'!

Heh.

Back on topic, I've been trying to find a decent and affordable mannequin for a long time. With all the retail closures in the US they should be everywhere. There must have been a division's worth of mannequins from Sears alone. Maybe in a thousand years someone will find them buried in Illinois all lined up marching order like the Terracotta Army
