Don't Panic

By MattB1987    
Yet another one from the 40's day, this man reminded me of Dad's Army and could almost imagine him saying 'Don't tell him your name Pike!' or 'Don't panic Mr Mannering!'. Obviously this is a bit of fun and I think it was a Russian uniform, any more info would be appreciated Smile. I started with the colour version and got it to where I liked it then tried the mono again and was really pleased with it.

I will upload the colour version to go with it. Well anyway thank you for looking at my photo, I hope you enjoy and of course all comments and critiques are much appreciated.

Colour for me as well, Matt, uniform aside he most certainly does look like several of the Home Guard rolled into one.

Congrats on your win.
