glad you like it Q-tiki,
Thats not the half of it! I did a bunch of Tech advisory jobs for TV and movies so Ive always had atleast 15+ mannequins to display uniforms for whatever era the producers were doing. well, they were promoting K-98 the widowmaker, and needed extras in period Russian naval uniforms, well I need the Sean Connery style worn in Red October, I had the shoes and hat no uniform, I dress a manniquin for the premire, and then moved it into my home office. one day my buddy came over who I borrowed the uniform from and said hey I need that back, so I undressed the figure but left his shoes and hat on a naked mannequin. needless to say my window is on the path to the pool in my condo complex, people kept walking by with weird expressions on their faces, WTF??? I had no idea u could see the naked guy with a big old smile wearing nothing but a hat and shoes!!! kinda gay, lol

Looking at your thread is always inspirational to me. I think I am going to go for that army/jungle/safari look in my garage whenever I get to decorate it. I better start collecting (aka: hoarding) junk for this venture. I already have a lot of items that would work, so will keep looking at your pictures for ideas. Keep up the great work!!!

came across 10 new crates last weekend, of course getting them home in my small truck was no easy task, my vehicle looked like the car in "I love Lucy" when Ricky buys a new car for their trip to California and fred packed it!!! thought I was going to have a heart attack looking in the rear view as old wood crates shattered all over the 405 fwy !!!

this is one of four I found about a month ago, spent all day hand sanding the orange paint off of it today...
before....




after
