  1. Chris, in my humble opinion you have to think of the bunker as an ongoing work in progress... The more pictures you show, the more I like your bunker! It is indeed hard to display paperwork, it just takes so much space to do it properly, but since you have enough hardware to show, I would concentrate the displays on that and keep the paperwork in some nice binders and maps. Of course the nice ones can complete the displays and will give it just that extra power... Keep up the good work! Adler 1
  2. Thanks for your nice comments gentlemen! Now you made me consider about that admission fee ... Christophe, For some reason, don't know why, I don't have Saxon uniforms in the collection... Maybe it's time to go hunting for one ... Adler 1
  3. Thank you guys! It took indeed a lot of years to get everything as it is today, but this hobby stays fascinating because there's always something new to explore, even after all these years of collecting... Adler 1
  4. Ok, meanwhile I enlarge the bunker and put up some field beds... than we can camp with all the good stuff besides us ... Adler 1
  5. Thank you very much for your nice comments gentlemen! I Started collecting in 1973 (d*mm, seems I'm getting old) but that was just at a low level... After service in the army, things started getting more serious... Sure, but you have to bring a lot of Imperial stuff with you ... Adler 1
  6. Since a few days, bunkers seem to be popping up here and that inspires me to show some pictures of my own "bunker". As most of you know, I collect German Imperial but my main interest goes to the WW1 era. Feldgrau uniforms, bayonets, steel helmets etc... Of course I also have some WW2 stuff, but to be honest, that's a bit "on the side"... Please enjoy the pictures, Adler 1 Some more...
  7. That's a really great bunker you have there sir! I'm not surprised you like sitting there and watch documentaries, read books or just look arround ... Adler 1
  8. A great bunker it is! I think you spend a lot of time there Adler 1
  9. Ok, it's been a while since I posted a pickelhaube, but I think it was worth waiting... After looking for several decades for a nice felt lacquered ersatz pickelhaube, it finally happened! A while ago, I was able to purchase this M95 Oldenburg Inf. Regt. Nr. 91 with stamps and all... There's a little crazing in the lacquer here and there but I can live with that, considdering how long it took me to find one and let's not forget the rarity of this fragile haube... How often does one encounter an Oldenburg helmet? Please enjoy the pictures Adler 1
