One of my favorite uniforms is the "Pinks and Greens" Dress uniform that Commissioned and Warrant Officers wore from the 1930s to the 1950s. Cotswold sold a set several years ago, but I missed it then; and kitbashed my own from DiD parts. One recently popped up in eBay and I grabbed it. The cap that was included was not correct; but I replaced it with a Gearbox version that it closer. You can see that the khaki is definitely more pinkish than in the DiD version.

Gave the hat to a general:

Excellent! That's the look I think of when I picture a military officer.

Of course, I grew up watching 1950s sci-fi movies on television, which strongly influenced my impression of the military!

Great kit-bashing to produce a great version of the classic and very striking U.S. officer's service uniform.

Well done.

Two absolutely wonderful figures! Even the stance looks perfect.
Excellent work!

Here’s a publicity photo showing Jimmy Stewart in “Greens” and Clark Gable in “pinks and greens.” You can see the slight color variation in their coats (at least darkness), as both men had their uniforms made by private tailors.
