    Looking really very good.
    Does anyone know if the paratrooper uniform came with the elbow and knee patches sewn on - or we're they added on by the troopers themselves - and if so were they a regular colour, or did they vary a lot?

    The 'Jump Suite' was originally without the reinforcing patches. Just prior to the Normandy Invasion, the 'suits' had reinforcing patches that were usually of a greenish waterproof material sewn on at the elbows, knees and pocket bellows. This work was most probably done by quartermasters and unit riggers. Supposedly more than 90% of all jump suits were thus modified before D-Day. The greenish patches would fade to a gray color after washing.

    Hello Vaux, Beautiful painting. The simple base, which looks great, really shows off your excellent style of work on this piece. One of the best American paratroopers I've seen. Congrats, Regards, SG

    As far as I`ve read, the patches were made from tent canvas.
    Lovely paint job as well

    Vaux - apologies, I hadn't realised you had posted images of your finished work before I left my previous comment.
    The finished figure is terrific and your fine painting really shows off the details in the sculpting.
    Agree it's one of the best US paratroopers I have seen.

    A great job on this beautiful figure. Love all the details that you have added such as the emblems/manufacturors markings on kit uniform and accesories. Very well done
