    FJR display Normandy Fake or Reproduction items

    Many thanks to the emails about my display with some pics on the new 6 FJR profect string. i have a property in Normandy near Carentan that was occupied by 6 FJR dung the Normandy conflict. The display i have made is to try and re created a possible scene of that time frame and locality with 6 FJR. The kit and equipment in my display is 95% original but most of the uniforms and helmets for FJ and ss items are reproductions. Unfortunatly we are not all blessed with pots of money to be able to purchase original items. So i have used reproductions to try to finish and add to the display to complete it. My display is not open to the public but for me and some close friends. and the term FAKES does tend to lean towards trying to decieve or mislead someone. I'm not in that game and have in no way said the uniforms or helmets where original on the first string and pictures. I thought given this is a forum for like minded people with the same interest and hobby to share info and items of interest. So i thought other members would like the pics. obviously some less than others given some comments.

                      A really great looking display! Owning a piece of property in the Carentan is a very special thing! Congrats!

                              I think it looks fantastic! A lot of thought and effort goes into making a display like that! In a perfect world we would all be multimillionaires and be able to buy whatever originals we wanted, but of course, this is not reality. The next best case is what you have created.
