    This is the base for a commission I'm working on presently. Happy how it's turned out.
    Does the colour of the helmet look right? And the colour of the jacket? 20221215_190301.jpg 20221215_190814.jpg 20221215_132707.jpg

    Nice start.. The colours seem right.. but I will wait for those more qualified than me to confirm.

    Early helmets could be green or a mottled finish of various colours (not bright patches though). Fairy quickly these finishes were replaced with an overall less-reflective khaki finish. Here's an example of an allegedly original early helmet: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/30091017

    As for the jacket, you can use a wide range of khaki through to greenish drab colours - if you have Mike Butler's book, there are good examples of original uniforms that show a wide variety of colours. And if you don't have Mike's book, I recommend getting it ;):) The colour you've used looks fine.
