    Hello folks,
    I had these front rank figure i bought few months back, it is a mounted American officer wich i cut his riding legs i don't remeber why and was staring at me in hope i wouldn't forget about him.
    So i decide it to put him to some use.
    I cutted the leng on the lapels, shaved the turndown collar and added the stand up one, reshapen the edges of the top lapels.
    The legs are from a 40mm figure from Trident, so i glued the top and bottom together , added some putty and modified the turnbacks, added the lower part of the vest and built the carry on map bag.
    I still need to add the double vertical pockets which will cover most of the imperfections on the back.
    The topographical ingeneers were a separate entity from the Army and their job was to survey the terrain and make maps.
    Their uniform was a very distintive , dark blue coat with Aurore (orange-yellow) collar, lapels and cuffs with silver buttons and lace.
    The breeches , waist coat and turnbacks were white .
    Cheers 20150818_214009.jpg 20150818_214100.jpg 20150818_215302.jpg 20150818_215343.jpg

    Finished the hat and lapels.
    For the Aurore facings i've used jo sonja's Aurore with a dab of basic red to start a mid tone, progressively added aurore till last light in pure aurore.
    Added some yellow ink to blend and make the color a little alive since jo sonja's aceylics dey up very matt.
