Response to Pilot photos 1950-60s

I've become interested in adding figures to my aircraft models over the past couple of years and go to your site often as a reference. I wonder if you might be able to help me with my current puzzle? I'm about to start an FJ-4 Fury and want to include a pilot. The canopy will be closed so small details shouldn't matter too much, but I want something close to accurate.

The easiest route for me would be to use the figure that came with the Monogram F9F, wearing what looks like an H4 helmet. Would that be accurate for the somewhat later FJ-4 time period? Also, I've seen Fury pilots in bright orange as well as green(?) flight suits. Which is appropriate for a given circumstance?

No doubt this is a bigger can of worms than I even realize, but if you can point me in a direction I'd be most grateful.
