    Lacing to highlight , buttons , belts etc to do

    There is "at present" the regts tartan behind the badge ...what do you guys reckon ...too much, too busy or too close in the sett ?

    wasn't happy with the tartan just looked too busy so based on tge close ups of the original ...backing will be green with crown and bugle horn on it ....

    Tourie ..still green ...contemplating going red!!

    Mate you are in a right pickle.
    I always thought that the tartan backing was made from the same set as the trews and kilt but the square was cut on the diagonal.
    So you could paint the cross of the set with just the non intersections lines showing.
    I will try to find something to support my thinking.

    This looks complex but it is because there are two pieces of cloth. The back cloth is upright and the front cloth is on the diagonal.
    I hope that this is of some use.

    It's those pickles making your eyes water.
    Remember "if at first you don't succeed buy a budgie with no beak he has to suck seed".
    All the best Kev.

    Wibble, wibble and stick two pencils up your nose, with your underpants on your head.

    I applaud your patience or is it perseverance.
    He is looking very good though.

    Looking good mate, what's the yellow medal? I think your right about the tourie (pompom) the use of different coloured hackles for the companies had finished in the 1830's i think, so touries were probably the same. The tartan patch set wouldn't have shown so much of the pattern at that size I don't think and it does look a solid colour. All the best,
    Scotty.

    Hi Scotty

    Thanks for looking in and comments the yellow medal ( it has green edging but my pic doesn't show it well) is the French medal militaire here's a couple of pics all Reginald to the period and issued to British soldiers

    image.jpeg image.jpeg

    As for the backing latch , think I might have it as green ( sorry Keith couldn't find that budgie ...and thanks for info mate ) a reference to the Lt Coy roll .... and it does look a solid colour in the picture .

    He should be finished in the next day or so !
