    Hello Folks,
    I have finish this conversion from Front rank last night.
    Great figure and fun to work with.
    The alteration consisted on a new head and wig, lace on the coat , pockets and cuffs, moved one of the arms and made a walking stick and finally made the buttons.
    Most of the figure was paint it with scale 75.
    A little bit of history:
    François Jean de Beauvoir, Marquis de Chastellux 5 May 1734, in Paris , and died 24 October 1788, in Paris, was a military officer who served during the War of American Independence as a major general in the French expeditionary forces led by general Comte de Rochambeau. Being on general Rochambeau's staff for the duration of the war, Chastellux acted as the principal liaison officer between the French commander in chief and George Washington. However the Chevalier de Chastellux was also widely recognized, at the time of his campaigns in America, as a highly talented man of letters and a member of the Académie française

    I don't know how you do it i this scale, 54mm is bad enough. Excellent painting, conversion.
    You'll have to get a bigger cabinet to display these.
