I don't know how much this impacts actual finished models but on the boards here, folks love to trot out the effects of sun, wear and tear on uniforms. But since no one ever details what that would look like, I believe that the constancy with which this is so often said, may in fact encourage license for folks to use whatever damn color one wants. I think this is dangerous for the historical hobbyist.

Seems to me, you should go with the textbook color unless you have a darn good idea of what the actual color looked like after sun and campaigns have taken their toll.

Question: how much license do you get when taking into account the effects of campaign wear and tear, etc?

1 will be "I'm not in this for accuracy but as a creative outlet truth be damned" to 10 being "I endeavor at all times to get the colors accurate according to the best level of info out there."
