Adler's Imperial and WW1 collection

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago I had some time to move things arround and hang up my welcome sign. I also could dress up a few mannequins. In the WW1 US section there's a new guy arround, but I'm also working on a late WW2 German guy. I still need some things like belt, gasmask, some straps, shovel,... But already the guy begins to look nice in my humble opinion...

Enjoy the pictures...

Thanks for your comments guys!

Pete, I'm affraid I have to do the dusting myself... And at the time the children still were at hom, the bunker was much smaller... and it's locked very well also, never had problems with the kids...

Here's another update on the bunker...

I always wanted to have a nice shelf for my German camo helmets, well I finally installed one... It even looks better to have other helmets on shelves too...

Thanks to Pierre, I could add another grabenpanzer to the collection. It's a size 2, model 1 with the slits on the side to attach a strap to fasten the grabenpanzer to the body. The maker mark is the diamond shape, but this is stamped in ink, nut punched in the metal. A rare bird it is...

For some reason, some things come in pairs... you find nothing for a while and then everything pops up at the same time. Only a few days after purchasing the grabenpanzer, I managed to buy the Garde du Corps kuras from the same officer as I already have the helmet from... How many times can something like this happen in a life time???

Guess I'll have to go low profile now ...

Serious mate.

The world needs to see this (out of the bloody world ) collection.

I don't think i have seen the like before .

Just so many things to view and so many things in lovely condition .Most of this here being over 100 years amazing.

    If you were in my home town i could get you a huge display area in the local military museum in a second.

Shame you are not sir.

again thanks mate just breath taking. :thumbsup:
