Replica of Saddam Hussein's Medal Bar

12 posts in this topic

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After much soul searching I finally decided on a way to mount the medals as seen in the portrait of Saddam Hussein. I made sure that NO damage was done to the medals. I just put the display together. Above the Medal Bar is the Portrait of Saddam wearing the medal bar. Next to it is a bag containing pieces of the bunker under his main Palace in Baghdad. This was a long project as I could only afford one or two at a time. The Wisam al-Jadara, 1st Class (the first medal) took me two months to get. I hope that you enjoy the display as much as I did making it.

Would love to see a closeup of the bar you made.... the frame with everything looks very good.

Well worth the effort I would imagine

It may have taken a while to assemble but in my opinion it was well worth the effort Doc.

Cheers on a job well done. :beer:

For my next project I'm labeling every medal in all of my displays. Some displays are done already. After That I hope to be able to Mount all five classes of the PRL era of Poland's Order of Virtuti Militari.
