    Hello folks,
    Finished this fusilier few minutes ago.
    The soldier is wearing the 1786 facings for this regiment, white coat with scarlet turnbacks and piping at the lapels,cuffs and pockets.
    I've use at least 5 different "whites" to have every garment slightly different from eachother.
    You can't see it on the pictures since the phone camera does not really show it.

    Fine work Daniel.
    This figure has worked out really well. You really are the master of the white uniform.
    It may just be the photograph but maybe a little more shadow on the hat's white rosette will take away some of it's brightness. Only you will know.
    All the very best,
    Keith

    Another fine Frenchie!
    I agree with Keith, you have the mysteries of the white uniform solved.

    Well done

    Thanks my friend, you are right, the effect of the lights i have makes it too bright, but when i see it live it is normal.
    I haven't been very effective with the phone camera.

    Merci Nap, i've always like to use different shades of "white" when it comes to garments.
    For example, the material for the collar, cuffs and lapels wore traditionally sewn separatedly from the manufacturing of the coat, and in most cases from different fabrics.
    The hardest part of this figure was mixing cold and warm whites and create a balance that will lay credible results in terms of kind of "almost " blend them together.
    the pictures don't do justice to all what i am explaining
    Thanks for passing by :)
