    Not quite finished but getting there. I chose to paint the helmet in what the Marines called "Brown Side Out". According to USMC WW 2 expert Harlan Glenn, Marines in the Pacific almost exclusively wore the brown side out camo cover on their helmets.
    I still need to add the chin straps, cigar and some more painting. Again, sorry for the quality of the pics.

    Great paint work Ed. You get the real color of the marine´s uniform, I also like the comouflage in the helmet and skin tones, but I see something strange in the left eye.
