    Ditto !

    Outstanding display. Looks professional !

    The expression on the mannequins' face also contributes to the quality of the whole..

    This is not the first such post . Don't stop...

    wow, that looks great. I try to collect and make the same except i use the long ammo pouches.
    Those are for vigneron magazines ... right?

    Yes, the tall pouches are for the Vigneron. These seem to be easier to find in good condition than the FAL magazine pouches shown by belgium_one here.

    I have a question also - is the beret and cap badge shown here used only by recruits?

    Thanks! How hard is it to get the shorter ammo pouches?
