Imjin Reference V - Murals and Art pieces

Another useful resource from the museum was the large number of murals posted along the halls.These can provide inspiration in terms of uniform colors and unit organizations.

Scroll showing a royal procession from Suwon palace.

Finally, an art piece from Jinjuseong museum.

That's the end of the sources I managed to dig up for the Chosin war.  I still have a large number of photos from the 20th century that I need to organize.  I will probably do an update later for the Ground, Air and Naval forces for those looking for paint schemes.

    1. Agreed, it was nice to be able to get some resources for what is a fairly niche area of the hobby.
