Good Day All,

Just picked up a couple of Model Cellar British WW I busts. Last British uniforms I did were 20ish years ago and used Humbrol for those. The uniforms were WW II uniforms.

I am looking for recommendations on what to use for WW I uniforms and references. My library is a void for WW I references.

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Scott,

UK WWI uniforms tended to be an olive drab much like US olive drab.

LifeColor paints appears to be releasing UK WWI uniform set: CS45 British WWI Uniforms & Equipment

Here is an article that may be useful: http://www.sofmilitary.co.uk/re-enactor-info/british/british-ww1-soldier-uniforms-and-equipment/ww1-1916-somme-soldier.aspx
