Hi Paul.

I believe I am right in saying that the British Guards crimson flag is the Kings Colour and therefore they are correct!

Best wishes,

Thanks, :yeah:
Foot Guards did it the other way around – the plain crimson colour was the King's Colour and hence went on the right (as you face the enemy), whilst the union flag was the Regimental Colour and went on the left

I find your remarks on the brands of paint quite interesting. I also use mainly the relatively cheap acrylics from Marabu, which are made for generic "hobby" purposes rather than being special stuff for modelers. One of the reasons is that I prefer a matt finish instead of a shiny one, as you said.
