Great modelling on a great subject. Have you read the late Paddy Ashdowns book on Operation Frankton?  If not treat yourself to a copy. The anecdote Ashdown tells against himself in relation to Hassler is priceless

As a canoe enthusiast I mus say subject is fantasic, your job is very fine too. I like especially painting of face. What was originally a fabric of his anorak/uniform? Oiled or rubbered cotton?

Not entirely sure, think its rubber of some sort looking at the museum items
