    Here is the latest version of my display.

    I am currently working on a USMC uniform display... I recently acquired a canteen with USMC "dog ear" cover, and a Ka-Bar and will be adding them shortly.

    The Marine has decided stuffed a souvenir into his pocket!

    Here are some better shots of the display cases:

    In this shot we have my WWII Soviet, German U.S. Air Corp collections. We also have the World War I medals that belonged to my great grandfather.

    In this shot are display cases honoring the U.S. Marine Corp as well as the American units that took part in the initial wave of the invasion of Normandy. Below the cases on the wall are my British/ Commonwealth medal collection (Thanks, Andy!) as well as my Canadian helmet with 3 color net and bandage.

    Thanks, Josh! I wish I had more room... but there's only so much I can squeeze into a college dorm room!

    The display looks fantastic!! I think you have done a great job with the limited room you have to work with there is a lot of stuff going on but It doesn't look cluttered ...

    Great work mate, Looking forward to seeing the USMC set up when it is finished off

    Thanks for the kind words! Unfortunately, the additions to the USMC setup will be hooked onto the side and rear of the belt... It wont be visible unless you turn it around... BUT knowing it's complete is satisfying to me!

    They're similar... but they're actually wood framed display cases from a chain of hobby stores called: "Hobby Lobby". The glass of the display is on a hinge and when latched shut, the pressure holds the contents of the display in place.

    I received a Carlisle bandage and the KaBar in the mail today. I have never actually held one before... what an AMAZING knife!
