    Hi James, while a novel display item, I would be concerned with cloth items being in contact with metal with potential damp/rust problems.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I like how the stiehlhangranate is holding up you luft helmet, it looks pretty cool. : )

    I have to agree with Ade though, while it's pretty clever I wouldn't recommend displaying the cloth items on anything metal.

    Very clever display. Maybe put some clear plastic sleeves around the gasmask tin and then the cloth cuff titles over that so there is no cloth to metal contact?
    I love the clean and well lit look of your display!
