Default My collection so far

Been collecting for a long time but got serious about 2 years ago. Finally got my Signals NCO on a display. Found a used mannequin that fit. I even opened the safe up and dug out an all matching P-38 rig for the NCO. Also included some other photos of my uniform collection thus far. I donít really have any rhyme or reason in terms of what I collect. I mean as long as itís all originally applied insignia and of course Luftwaffe....then Really whatever catches my eye. I would like to get a General rank uniform....something named Iím thinking. But thatís another day!

All of my uniforms have been reviewed on WAF and have their own threads. Actually now that I think about it most of these have been from WAF members. I think before getting anymore uniforms I may focus on getting the accruements for the ones I have. Iíve had my eye out for a few nice leather officersí belts but havenít really found anything that I like. Would love to find something with a cross strap for my admin tunic. But those seem far and few between. Also headgear for them all. But damn a nice Luft Officer Visor is as much as a tunic is some cases!

I donít have my own room yet. So the crew just hangs out downstairs in the movie room. I would like to get something set up so I can display ALL my collectibles! But one day...I canít be too pushy! My wife is good about my collecting!

Enjoy and as always please leave your feedback good or bad!

You've built up an enviable collection.

I particularly like the LC signals tunic. The high-grade admin is also pretty neat.

Thank you Gents!

I am happy to hear I did well! Although I have to say if it wasnít for WAF I wouldnít have the tunics I have, I had a lot of help from the members here! So big thanks to all the members who have schooled me!

Nice stuff. I'd put the holster with the Fliegerbluse though

Hi Dave,

Thanks for sharing, and nice job. The fact that you have a space to display them for now is in of itself a minor blessing.

Thanks again to all that posted! I appreciate the kind words. I got lucky in the last few months and snagged a few nice pieces.

Gene, yes I agree. I will move the holster over to the Fliegerbluse. I had actually decide to build that particular one out. So I have my eye out for a nice belt, medals and other stuff to complete my Para impression. We will see how the next few months go!

Hello Jason

Yes I suppose I should be happy for the small little piece of paradise I have! I am slowly adding, so my stuff is encroaching farther and farther into the downstairs common room! Before my wife knows it I will have some framed pieces hanging up!
