Collecting Vietnam and later.

Ok, I seem to have spread my interests a bit as I decided to collect some Alice gear as well as temperate climate clothing of the same period. I already have a few items which are not Vietnam specific so hopefully this will not cost me too much.

I have been reading right through the U.S Militaria Forum learning quite a bit. Its a shame that I won't be able to find the same quality uniforms (badged) in New Zealand or the same amount of equipment but at least the prices are not too bad here.

I made a stand to put my M56 webbing on. I made this out of; a Camera tripod, a bar bell and a roof rack mounting. I think it looks alright but will try and get a manikin at some stage when I have finished my games room.

ERDL 1977 Helmet cover

Real nice M65 Jacket 69 dated.

The hood is quite rare to have intact from what I've read.

$25 Claymore Bag

Lucky to have the instructions intact.

LC1 medium pack with field applied camo.

Mismatched straps and no date to be found.

LC2 medium pack which is a bit faded.

No frame with this and no readable date.

1999 etool cover. I am repainting the 76 dated blade.
