I now understand gradually that this is not a forum for collectors of militaria, so it's probably not that interesting with pictures from my collection (only old effects). I will post some pictures gradually, so we'll see the reaction. If they dont like it, then **** themself

Regards from Norway

Here a few German Daggers:
Heer Dagger (Alcoso)
Kriegsmarine Dagger (Eickhorn)
Luftwaffe Dagger 2nd model (WKC Solingen)
SA Dagger (RZM-M7/42)
SS Dagger M33 (Böker Solingen)
Luftwaffe Dagger 2nd model (unmarked)

....and some WWII Medals from Norway

And they are all Originals items !

What set up do you have for photographing the items in your collection? I really like your choice of what looks like a red baize background. I am not a Militaria collector but I am seriously interested in the digitisation of slides, negatives plus macro items and Documents.

This is my home brewed copy stand that I built out of two old enlargers and a backlit slide viewer. All lit with variable intensity cold LED lamps. Sorry about the quality but it was taken off a video clip.
Your a bit of a clever old bugger. Pity we aren't neighbours we could be making copies of BREN guns.

More cunning than clever. I think that making BRENs would be out of my skill range, but I did make some Sten copies 30 years ago.

I made plenty of firearms prior to the Australian laws being changed, but being a law abiding citizen, I have not made any since. The penalties are far too great to take the risk. I admit that it wouldn't prevent someone who was a criminal anyway, but that was not what he was pointing out.



And if you are wondering, I live in a state where the ownership of automatic weapons was not illegal, but their importation was, so the legal way around it was to make your own. I made dozens of them.

Well you are doing better than me, all I have ever made was a black powder mortar for launching spaghetti cans full of sand about 400 meters.

What camera and lens are you using on your copy stand?

A Nikon D3000 with the standard AF-S 18-55mm lens and a combination of auto extension tubes and a 2.5X magnifying lens if necessary. it gives me the ability to photograph anything from a full newspaper page down to something about match head size in a full frame.

At the moment I'm using only the 20mm extension tube to copy old slides.

Hi Senojekips,

I`m only using a old cheap digital Camera (Cannon IXUS 870 IS). The background on the medalpictures is just a pece of red cloth. This is why the quality varies, and the colors may show nuance sometimes (red, pink, etc).

Here some German Helmets from WWII.
Helmets, straps and decals are all original. These are not in mint quality, but still in very good condition.

German helmet M42 SD Heer ET64
German helmet M40 SD LW Q 62
German helmet M35 DD Heer SE62
German helmet M35 NS 64

Hope you like them....

Regards
JT1959

The value of these helmets, I would suggest:
German helmet M42 SD Heer ET64 (NOK 6000 = EURO 750)
German helmet M40 SD LW Q 62 (NOK 3300 = EURO 400)
German helmet M35 DD Heer SE62 (NOK 4200 = EURO 500)
German helmet M35 NS 64 (NOK 3000 = EURO 375)

(as normal sales price in Norway)

Regards
JT
