-The Sabretache : blue 70809 with red 70909 around, not to forget the gold eagle.
-The telescope is laiton 70801 and the front side is made of wood 70875 beige brown (so the metal doesn't tick to the skin when it's too cold)

-The stick to push the ball to the bottom of the barrel : 70822 brown and black .

The bearskin is black with red 70909, Laiton 70801, the round insignia is white, red 70909 and 70899 prusia blue, this blue dot is so small that it's hard to see, but it's there.
