    I'll start out.

    Moved into our 'new' house and marked out my territory. :D There is a mix of original, reproduction, and a very few airsoft items but the large majority of what is shown is original. Some of the pics aren't great, the lighting wasn't the best and shooting items behind glass is tough.

    Enjoy. Click images to enlarge.

    Not 100% historically accurate but provides a good idea of how a GI would have been outfitted in Normandy in July, 1944. His HBT pants and shirt are repros that were used in the filming of "Saving Private Ryan".

    Top is a 'last ditch' Japanese bayonet, middle is a '43 dated German bayonet, and the bottom is a battle damaged WW1 German sawback bayonet that is unit marked.

    The 'coffee table'. I normally have plexiglas on top to protect the finish.

    An original USAAF photo. Here's the story on this photo: the front bomber was hit by flak and the mortally wounded bombardier prematurely released his bombs.

    Three official USAAF photos from a set of five: P-38 making low passes. All marked "not for publication" on the back.

    The helmet cover is a reproduction that was used in the filming of "Saving Private Ryan".
