Me likes!! If I would have to "criticize" it in any way which I would hate to would be the buttons and the pocket flaps should be scalloped BUT regardless, BRAVO!!

Serge, I agree with you on the buttons. You see, I donīt have your magic powers to get me the correct wood buttons. Well, maybe some day.

Considering the pocket flaps: I have looked at many pictures. Most of the m40 tunics come with straight pocket flaps, only a few had scalloped ones.
My MVSN m40 tunic (real ww 2) has straight pocket flaps.
Look here:

The Swiss jacket had scalloped pocket flaps, it was quite some work to straigthen them. My fingers were bleeding after seing them back together!

What do you think about the color? Is it correct or do you think I have to dye the jacket?

Yo Tankman!
Thanks for the shoutout but no biggie really. As for the color, from the lighting it looks pretty dead on as a nice example of good old grigio verde or as close as your going to get to it without resorting to building a time machine and going back 60+ years to get a box of RE "RIT" to re-dye it with!

As for the buttons, I was lucky enough to get a connection in the old country who sent be a bunch of assorted sized bakelite buttons. That way, if I ever lose one I'l be good to go. Neat about the flaps also.

It seems to be a good jacket.

Damn good IMO. Personnally, I would not be concerned about the buttons. My research (stilll ongoing) indicates a wide variety of buttons were used. If you can find 'more correct' buttons, go for it. I am not convinced that what you have are necessarily 'wrong'.

Now if you can mass produce these tunics......

no jim, it looked like the swiss jacket below.
The pockets of the swedish jacket are way too big and the color does not match too well.
What I did? I replaced the buttons, made holes for the buttons in the pocket flaps and changed the shape of the pocket flaps. Then I added the collar tabs with the gladi.
Now, I am still looking for a way to transform the swiss trousers in Italian m42 para trousers. Might be not so easy, because the swiss trousers are not so baggy like the m42 were and thereīs a stripe on the side of the swiss trousers. Maybe I need to get me some 1 or 2 sizes larger than what I need and trat from that point...
