    Hi Kev - this one's looking good! Just a thought, but I think the rank chevrons were just plain white tape, but of course, I could be wrong..!!

    I cant find a specific example, but Im basing it on the other infantry uniforms worn in India. The BNI tunics were locally made from thinner cloth and very simplified, as per the lace on the button holes.... (y)

    Cheers Steve ..the stripes shall be white young Ledders ..lol

    As you say the uniforms of BNI ie the lace were much simplified

    Just looked again I based mine on the British infantry ..but painted them opposite for some reason !! ..if anything the backing should be the facing colour and stripes white ...silly sausage I am ! .....

    Looking at the last picture above tgecSgt stripes are made up if 2 parts to each strip so will use paint to hopefully achieve this ...and I will add stitching around the backing edge as well

    The hair and cap are now done ! ...

    Facing colour and lace work next including those stripes !
