    Default Japanese tropical uniform display

    This is my first crack at displaying an IJA tropical army uniform. The belt and buckle is reproduction. I have an original belt but will not use it on the display since it is mint. The helmet net is reproduction - all the other items are original. I am looking for the original ammo pouches and a cap chin strap. Also need a gas mask and shelter quarter. This is a work in progress. NH

    Hi Neil. Nice Japanese items. I know you want to be able to see the rifle
    ( and the flag ) but it might be best displayed over the shoulder.........
    Regards,

    Steve, Thanks. I put the type 99 up front just for the photos. I wanted you guys to be able to see it clearly. Once I get a few more items I will post a front and back view. NH

    Patrick, Several dealers at the Allentown, PA Ag Hall show specialize in Japanese items. Price range for the Japanese tropical or Summer jacket range from 85 US dollars to 125 US dollars. If they have insignia still attached they range higher. I see you are in Ireland so probably little chance of you coming out. I am going February 9th and can scout for you. Neil

    P.S. Regarding my display - I still need the leather pouches and some field gear. I want to get a used belt to use on the display rather than destroying a mint example. Looking for ammo pouches, oiler, gas mask, cap strap and shelter quarter.

    Neil,

    Great display! I love japanese items and have really been wanting to acquire some more items, especially an arisaka and helmet, just waiting for the budget to allow for such purchases. I like how you have yours set up, definitely a great example!
