    Marco my friend, you are going too fast:)Smile. The helmet cover was reversable and had two shades. The one you show me and the one I show you SmileSmile. The other is not the raincoat but a rolled out tent, which again had two shades. I have pics of original items in both shades and yours and mine are both correct

    I love it, simply spot on, especially the drill green colour of the uniform.

    Regarding camos, as Steve wrote bought of you are right, consider as well that the harsh climate the Marines were in the camo also faded at a fast rate, so when comparing to warfootage and images, you have to asses this issue. There are images with almost all the camo spots faded completly resulting in an almost all green textile, but then would it look nice on a bust?

    Marco, it shows you have been watching The Pacific : )

    Great job on the bust, looks like a combat hardened vet from one of the Pacific Islands.
