    Hey Phil. You ain't kidding! Mannequins are expensive items. I'm hoping my mint unissued M33 tunic fits on this one, once I finish paying it off on lay away. I frequently check craigslist for mannequins, and for stores going out of business. I have found that mannequins sell very fast.
    It's not easy finding the right mannequin at the right price. I've been looking for some to portray Russian pilots and all those in the $150-$200 range are extremely effeminate looking (must be a fashion thing). To get a mannequin in Australia that actually looks like a man, the prices start at $350+. There's some old retro ones on Ebay occasionaly that look good and cheap prices, but are pick-up only as the postage is prohibitive.

    I just believe a Soviet fighter pilot should look a bit masculine, and most of the mannequins coming out of China these days just don't cut it in that department. They'd be all right for advertising trendy clothes. I just can't see Boris the pilot being that limp-wristed.

    The Knight's Cross looks great, nice contrast. Red and black always look impressive together.

    Cheers, Willie.
