    John thanks.

    Ivan, it was at the club on Wednesday but I can assure you that you can see it better here due to the bad lighting

    Stephen, It's nice to see an 18th century subject. Though size could vary to a certain degree, look at men's hats in period paintings. give a smaller hat a try next time, if for anything else to see how it looks. As for the back of the coat there is typically a pleat on either side of opening of the back bottom portion of the coat. This black and white illustration is of a coat from the mid 1740's. The style did not really change much (if at all) between that period and the 1750's. You might also note there is some additional trim on the coat, although the amount of finery on a coat depended on the wearer (and his pocket book). ~Gary

    Hey Gary thanks for the info. I have to admit that the little reference I had showed nothing from the back so I had to use my common sense. I also agree regarding the braid but it was a matter of doing or not. Will keep that pic you sent me. Thanks

    Hi Lennart, thanks. Actually what I did was this. I took a commercial head because it was the right size. To be honest only the size was good so I resculpted the whole face.
