    Great stuff! What did you use to fill the ammo pouches?

    Just some 1 or 1 1/2 inch wide strips of 3/4 inch-think pine boards.

    The set-up was inspired by some period photographs, but also by this figure that I photographed at the museum at Camp Elsenborn a couple summers ago... Sorry about the reflection in the glass, but my pocket camera couldn't do a better job in poor lighting.

    Very nice. The short FNC ammo pouches seem to be impossible to find. Maybe the government hasn't released them as surplus yet.
