That Figure. 30mm

I have had an email asking if the figure in the vignette is not Fred, then who?
 
I draw inspiration from artwork, books and friends. And it is not always a like for like but my interpretation/take. As I mentioned, given that I have since taken a few more ideas from the Zorndorf  artwork by  Rochling, maybe I should have dressed the figure exact as Fred and not August Wilhelm, Duke of Braunschweig-Bavern (born 1715), wearing the uniform of his regiment IR7, also the Order Pour le Merite.
