    Ah yes that's a good reference picture and I see what you mean about the cloth of the chair. It looks like the jacket and trousers are slightly different colours, I remember my father saying not many of them had matching sets when he did his National Service. Good luck with the medal ribbons.

    Oops sorry mate, I reckon you could get away with tinting the jacket with some highly controlled green washes, but really don't sweat it, this is your version you are allowed to make it look better.

    Really didn't mean to cause you any issues Mario in my defence that is the first time I have seen that picture in colour. If you are going to try and change it try on a practice piece first until you get the technique right. Good luck mate.

    Like Simon says, that chair looks great, the stripes will really pop this when you put it all together. About the colours in the photograph, is it an original colour photograph, or a colourised black and white one? Either way, dont take the colours as gospel, an original photo would be 80 years old, and colourised photos are an artists impression....
    You are doing fine, I would not change anything on account t of the photograph.

    Really a very beautiful model you have done there Mario, you should be very proud of that one because it is brilliant. Believe in yourself because you are a talented modeller.
