    Hello folks,
    I am starting to work on a continnental officer who will be sharing some brandy with his French ally officer at the Yorktown battlefield diorama
    The shape of the bottle it is not complete, i just cut of a plastic part from historex and shaped up the top with greenstuff, still lots of work to do.
    The officer will have the traditional blue coat , but i will have to research on the facing color for lapels, collar and cuffs, it could be buff, white or red as well, i just need to do my research which one would have more liky to be in there. 20161130_074414.jpg 20161130_073859.jpg 20161129_233018.jpg

    Daniel, I don't know how you do It, it's too small for me. 54mm is small. You are doing a fine job on this one mate.
