Meet the Left waist gunner of the B-17 Mrs Geezil

Hello Gent’s,
Well my WONDERFUL wife bought me a mannequin for my Father’s day gift.
So as I promised I would share my display with all that were interested .
I did it up to recreate what Phil Chaperon told me he wore on the day they were shotdown on a mission to Schweinfurt on April 13th 1944 . These are the M1938 coveralls I just picked up.
I have a set of WW2 low quarter boots coming to put some shoes on those feet. The second pic is my display to Honor my Great Aunt and Phil.
Meet Phil!


I’ll let this sit like this to take it all in. I am SOOOO Happy!!
Then I’ll put on the B-14 Michael gave me. Then the 8th AF uniforms I have.
Man O Man! I finally get to play dress up.
It’s like having my GI Joe back but life sizecool militaria

Semper Fi
