I don't really collect Japanese items but I have a lot of it. Here's my first attempt at a manikin display. I still need to find a leather belt. The helmet is dated 1941 and is reportedly a bring back from Truk.

That is a beautiful display you have. Thanks for sharing it. I especially like all of the ordnance you have on the shelf.

Impressive display. The mannequin is one of the most lifelike I've seen.

That looks amazing, but your helmet really sets off the display. It's perfect!

I have been fortunate to find original gear in near new condition. The helmet came from a fellow collector long ago. He got it directly from the vet who brought it home.

If you don't really collect Japanese items, I can't wait to see the stuff you do really collect.
