Airfix Catalogue description:

The figure represented in this kit is clad in an infantry uniform, and is one of many styles adopted by the patriots after the declaration of war in April 1775, for although the Commander-in-Chief George Washington strove to obtain some uniformity among his troops by issuing dress regulation orders, due to desperate shortages he was never to succeed and many variations of uniforms were worn, and equipment varied. - Taken from the 11th edition catalogue (1974)
