    It's looking really good so far! Maybe you want to add some more thin lines to the edges of the camo, check your reference pics, the Denison smocks had some paint stripes, kind of looking like it was painted on with a broom on the edges.

    Maybe they had a different pattern camo too though, I dont realy know! The colors are looking spot on though! Keep it up!

    I also thought the Denison smock had only one type of pattern but after researching the subject Ive came up with at least three patterns. One being the streaked edges your refering to. In addition there also some different cuts in the smock like different sleeves, collar and shoulderpatches.

    Im not say that my pattern is 100% correct but merely my impression of a real pattern. Ill check as I get back home with the source. I could have gone wrong while painting.

    For those that dont have it, I can recomend the book "For king and country". Its not cheap but holds almost all information thats needed about the British Airborne Troops equipment and uniform.

    Interesting! It is amazing how many patterns they come up with (not just Britain but everyone) with the same 'basic' patterns.

    I thinks the many differences among many armies dress code is due to different contractors, shortages, rushing production etc. On the other hand it gives us a modellers varity today.

    Cheers
