I'm getting the colours right slowly.

I've put together the fabric for the landing soldier (raw edge applique) in the tones as it appears in the reference pictures, and I'm not happy with a few bits so I'll go back now and change a few pieces and maybe add a few more.

I always find that sometimes stuff doesn't make sense until you try it in the fabric - I'm really unhappy with how bright his hand is and with some of the shapes of the darker bits, feels like it needs tidying up.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to fix it up and show you the improved version tonight or tomorrow!
