    Hi folks

    Couple of pics iffyvision of course !

    All now base coated...hopefully all details will happen once I get going

    Eyes done went for a slight light brown ..his actual colour isn't recorded as far as I can find

    Going to put the right arm badge on a slightly darker patch don't think it would be individually put on ...welcome any thoughts

    Happy benchtime

    Hello Nap! Currently doing the Sarnia version. I also wondered about the badge on right arm. It must have embroidered on a piece of cloth identical to coat and so doesn't show up well in the painting. The painter was probably a civilian and did not recognise the nuance of this and cut a corner! Scarlet is scarlet to him! It would have been very expensive embroidering direct on to a sleeve, especially if the owner was frequently promoted/demoted! Haven't got any factual proof, just a logical, gut feeling. Your version is starting to take shape. Love it, but as he is carrying a Walking out Cane, I would have gone for the Side hat as well!! Not too late!!!!!!! Cheers, Dubris

    Hi Dubris

    Hope we see your version he even as well

    Ref the badge I agree looking at similar modern badges ie Drill Sgts /Warrant Officers the Guards which has the badge worked on a backing albeit not red

    Side hat is a good idea ...one for yours though ...wanted to keep mine without to show off the hair style and close to the picture

    Happy benchtime
