Very nice display Eddie. You always see pictures of the guys with MG34's and MG42's over their shoulders and carrying them. They get heavy to carry after a while!

Great set up Eddie
Looks like the Panzer officer with his back to the camera is wearing a British brown officers belt, judging by the pattern on the belt

Hi Eddie, very nice set up.
You have missing bullets. I have bought all of mine from a UK collector. If you need more i can try to find his email and send it to you.
