Default As boredom sets in - a few changes in my room.

Well as the Corona Virus has us all hunkered down and living the simple life, I thought I would make a few changes in my room, and spread things around a bit more.

I have posted most of this stuff before, but hopefully my changes pass the test with members here, and my little corner of the world isn't too boring, these days it is mostly Luftwaffe... (with a very small selection of Heer items that I just couldn't let go).

Cheers

Bob

Thanks Bob, awesome collection. You've managed to keep me entertained for a few moments during this otherwise somewhat uneventful day.

Here is a pic of "Hank", he minds the door and keeps everything in order

He is a US 8th AAF pilot, tunic is sadly un-named, but all insignia original to it....
