I've been wanting to do a scenario with all of this stuff for a while now but had to make some authentic looking army issue boxers for the troops. Now I wouldn't ever describe myself as any sort of a seamster, and have to say that the balloon-back bits were a challenge, but that's how the real ones are, so I had to persevere.
Anyway here's a shot of the skivvies I made.

Or leaving any white marks on the pages Laughing. I really enjoyed your take on a Army barracks and well done on your seamster skills. The little scenario between the two soldiers made me laugh. Let’s hope we’ll see more scenario Army barracks.

Great job on the boxers, and on the miniature magazine... complete with a centerfold! Love the pin-up pics in the locker, too!

Thanks to all of you! Your comments are much appreciated.
Trying to get this set to show up here on AMMO became a major headache due to the problems I had with the link coding from the hosting site I'm using.
Glad you enjoyed it.

Alex, I'm pretty sure the boys in the barracks will be getting up to more antics in the future.

I'm really glad you enjoyed seeing some of their off-duty moments.

Well they do both have some army issue shower shoes (scuffs) but they don't do much to hide those little feet. (Odd in that he has ENORMOUS hands that cause problems when dressing.)
I was going to put the sandal things on him, but I thought he might just have got up out of his lower bunk to see what was causing such interest up on top?
I also considered cropping the shots too, but in the end just went with it.
Some things you just can't change.

Like we big men, he too has to come to terms with the size of what he was given.......eh? Smile  Embarassed  Wink Wink Wink Wink

Signalman..... the pics in this thread are showing for me right now, hopefully you can see them too? (There should be seven of them.)
I have had some problems in the past with the hosting site I'm using and it has gone on and off before at least once that I know of, disabling any viewing of my photos.
Please PM me if you are still "blacked out".

By way of contrast I have just taken delivery of two Hasbro Pawtucket figures of Japanese boys and they have quite small hands but absolutely ENORMOUS very long feet. Shocked Shocked Shocked
None of my Q-Store boots will even go anywhere near them!

Signalman, are you pulling all the way up to the very top of the post?
That's where the pics are.
Sometimes when the thread becomes long it can open at the bottom, or on the second/third page thereby causing you not to see the initial photos.

Internet is a good source of 40's style pinups. 
Print onto pale beige paper for that aged look.
Crunch 'em up just a little too so they look as though they have been there a while.

Ah, you found and resurrected this topic!

Did you say this was another one in which you had to reload the images?

Yes indeed. Very laborious task, finding all the exact images and replacing the codes.
I have since located more than a few of my older posts and had to replace the codes in them too so that the images show once again. 
I would appreciate an alert if anyone comes across any other of my posts that have images not showing.
Can't find them all with "SEARCH" because it doesn't seem to work at all.  Mad Mad Mad

Great work on the skivvies! Although I thought they would be olive drab in color. lol!

And great story.

I have a couple of those lockers and the bunk, but I don't have any of the "mattresses" or blankets.
I need to make some for mine. I got all three of them on ebay a few years back, don't have the actual sets.

And, I had planned to put pin-ups in my lockers as well. lol!

Great stuff LeStryge!

Thanks Daryl! You comments much appreciated.
I based the colour of the skivvies on the barracks scenes from movie "Full Metal Jacket" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkGIxGdZoYY) where they are white, but I do know some units seem to have had olive drab.
Perhaps they were for out in the field?
The "mattresses" you get with the sets are nothing more than a rectangle of very, VERY thin olive foam. Hardly comfortable one would think?
The blankets have more realism but the pillows are also tiny.
I like the lockers and you can stack them with various items, (there are clothes hangers) and of course pin-ups are a must!

I had thought of olive skivvies from watching M*A*S*H. That doesn't say the color didn't change
from WWII to Korea. Or have changed later. It has been quite a while since I've seen Full Metal
Jacket. But after mentioning it, I do remember the white skivvies.

I've been wondering about how I would do the mattresses and blankets for the bunk. I hadn't
even thought about the pillows!

My lockers are bare, no hangers. But I was planning on the pin-ups! lol!
