  1. Very nice pieces hermano! 👍 I hope we will get some informations about this unit.
  2. I have another Cuban but soviet made belts like this. But mine are brown coloured (scroll down; unfortunately I haven't translate the text into Spanish and English): https://cuba-militaria.org/ausrustung/
  3. I have to correct you. Such belts are soviet made and they are typical for 1970's and 1980's. You can find them on russian auction sites. Here a description with pictures from my collection.
  4. I saw your post from a few years ago regarding Cuban police call boxes.  I am a Gamewell police call box collector here in Michigan, and a retired LEO.  Would you happen to have a box available or even just a door?  It is a really unique item.

      As a follow up, because of the weight and shipping issue.......I would be very happy with just a door and not an entire call box.  I have owned roughly 50-60 boxes over the past 25 years, and this would be one of the most unique.  As a result, I would pay some serious dollars for a door (with hinges preferred).  Thanks for your patience.

  5. Hello friends, since last friday I'm back from Cuba. In one month there I could get many nice items. So one actually uniform of a general de brigada: Here my complete result of my trip:
  6. Hey guys, here an example of my Cuban DAAFAR badges. The DAAFAR uses three types of classifications badges: for navigators, for technicians and for pilots. They will award in five grades (Maestro - Primera - Segunda - Tercera - without title). Here the 3rd grade of all types. The last one is from the army/navy (for comparison):
  7. You're welcome amigo! Yes, it is very similar to the soviet one like all many other badges (for example for ground forces/marina or soldiers/service men). Why Ramiro wear such sub marine badge I do not know too.
  8. I can try to ask for it in Cuba next march. But it is a real mistery.
  9. I've never thought that INTUR used such uniforms. I only know the old INTUR-money for tourists in the 70s/80s. Can you make a foto of the interior or the hat?
  10. So gentlemen, today my newest piece arrived me from the US of A: a general's peaked cap for gala uniform and service dress (ca. 1988 - early 90s). Here's is a reconstruction of an service dress of a general de brigada at the end of the 1980's. All pieces are 100 % cuban.
  11. Amigo, the shown badges are similiar to the Soviet Submarine Badge except the red star was removed and it was replaced with the cuban national coat of arms. Gold version is for comanders, silver for all another crewmen.
  12. Ciao amico! That's a very interesting peaked cap I've never seen before! Very, very nice! Well, as you guessed correctly it belongs to Instuto Nacional de Turismo (INTUR, engl. National Institute for Tourism). This peaked cap must be from the 1970s.
  13. Thanks Paul. Well, I think it's difficult as for you. I think you need some luck to get them. I've got the luck to have a friend which has a belarusian friend who bought the shoulder boards and the winter jacket in Belarus for me and brought them to me. Today my second winter jacket of the 80s and combat boots arrived from Ukraine. So you will see I get my items from around the world: USA, Europe, Cuba etc. Unfortunately I have noticed, that some US sellers are really mercenary. They have fancy prices. The Cubans will say "Pa' la pinga"
  14. Hallo friends, here you see my new entrant of my collection: an officer's winter jacket for the battle dress unit of the 1980's. The jacket is absolutely new and unused.
  15. Hello fellows, after a long time a short update: Here' are my new epaulettes of a Division General. They are absolutely unused and from the 1980's.
