OK I believe we can class ourselves as specialists for collecting all things U.S.A.A.F.?

We strive for total authenticity in our personal representations.

Now I know some items are not available or basically classed as hens teeth and rocking horse poo so incorporating these into our impressions is not a viable option.

But what are your own views regarding original against re-pros?

If originals are available does it desist away from the effort if we don't use them? After all we aren't actually doing combat in our kit where it has the chance of being damaged or destroyed.

Cost does equate into the matter but as previously stated we are specialists?

I for one like to use original.

MIKE.

A friend and my self do a bit of film work now and again.we have supplied a lot of original equipment including original uniforms which are great but you have to remember most of this stuff is now 70 years plus!

We would sooner use brand new copies because during WW2 enlisted men were issued with new equipment ,with this in mind you can iether retain it as new or distress it as much as you want with out thinking that you are destroying a piece of historical clothing.
All we are trying to do is to replicate a soldier or an airmen as accurately as possible , i would sooner put my original kit on a manaquin and use modern uniforms to wear.
