    My collection in new display cases

    I finally have my collection displayed in new cabinets but they still leave a lot to be desired. The inert grenades on the top 2 or 3 shelves form a light blocking canopy over the items below, so I must remove everything and install additional lighting for the bottom section.
    US SUBS and Paul the Grenade both have great display set ups and I may end up scrapping my cases for something more like theirs!!!

    It is not well organized but this was just a "test filling" of the cabinets so here is my collections world debut........

    Here are some inert Japanese items

    Very nice collection and organization. It's no wonder that Jap stuff is hard to find in the U.S.

    What's the story behind the Dole Pineapple grenade?

    Thanks to highlandotter and HAZORD for the kind words!

    The Dole pineapple can and the Plochmans mustard bottle next to it are the product of an eBay seller with a warped sense of humor. He listed them as "experimental pineapple grenade" and "experimental mustard gas grenade" along with an absurd story of their development and trials. I share his sense of humor and bought the pair (really cheap) as conversation pieces.

    Very impressive. I was told early on in collecting that Jap items were common in the US, but I have not found that to be the case at all. I am with Hazord - now I understand why that situation exists. What variety of Russian BM? APFSDS round do you have - 100, 115 or 125mm? I am leaning towards 125mm.
