Hi Group,

I found some old 1/72-1/76 Royal Army figures from long ago (MPC? Airfix?). I painted a few as a kid. What colors were Royal Army uniforms and straps and belts, etc. I am not looking to win a contest but want to know how to make them accurate using the 3-foot rule.

Suggest that you Google for images "First World War British Uniforms". I just got two screens full of images - not all of them useful, but many.

Don't know what year(s) you want to portray or whether infantry, cavalry or artillery. Royal Marines and Royal Naval Division also fought during most of the land campaigns of WW1.

I have a lot of stored images on an external hard drive but I'm in the process of moving all files to a new computer, so temporarily unavailable.

More than willing to help if I can, but it would be useful to be more specific.

All the best,
