    Hi folks

    Digging into the patiently waiting GA ...over 5 years !

    A US Continental Marine here's the link to the late Geoff Charmans version with pre '79 white facings http://www.planetfigure.com/threads/awi-continental-marine-1775.252209/

    Facings changed to red in 1779 ...reason unsure I believe

    Currently basecoated ,added the upper tape on the headwear Needed to sort out the eyes by reworking the surface

    untouched

    Looking good
    Only 5 years Kev, you must have older ones than that. I prefer the red facings so that's how mine was painted
