    Hello,
    I want to show you the next figure I am sculpting in 1/35 scale. It is WRNS despatch rider for Bronco triumph motorcycle. I noted that a duffle coat was very huge on pictures, it's especially visible on girls, so I am still trying to represent this on the figure, not so easy.
    I've got a problem with the details of WRNS peaked cap, I mean the cap with the HMS letters, I can not find good pictures in Internet and books I have. So I would like to ask you, maybe someone has got good pictures of this cap, Please help!
    Cheers
    Pawel

    A re-enactment out-fitters has this offering:-

    Or you can cover up the front with goggles, as shown in the following picture, which come from Osprey Men-at-Arms No. 357 (World War II Allied Women’s Service), plate A1 showing a WRNS despatch rider, Portsmouth Naval Base, February 1941.

    You could always put the goggles on the cap - that cuts the research down a bit.

    Thanks a lot yes I know I can cover it by goggles, but I would like to put them on her neck. Yeah Mr.Ishii's figures are great. As I said the huge duffel coat is difficult to sculpt for me in such sitting position and the front of the figure seemed to be a little too square and massive I just cut it off and start to sculpt this part from the beginning:).
    .... and if someone has some pictures of these WRNS despatch rider's peaked cap, please put it here
    Cheers
    Pawel
