VAC Training Center, Fort Des Moines, Iowa ~ July 1944
« on: February 07, 2019, 11:27:56 AM »
This is a slow moving project.  There's a lot of water damage and cleaning up the uniforms, one woman at a time is slow.  Just about finished the first row... but there are many more to go.  Just sharing.

Great job Candy. I would darken the grass to match the rest on your left. Think maybe water damage caused it to be lighter.

I agree, Margie.  I haven't worked on that area much because of the uniforms but I won't forget.

I'm still working on the platoon, but had this one in the wings to finish from the same family.  I've sent in on home.
