    Officer and horse almost ready.
    I've made his coat a tad Darker red than the troopers.
    In general, the officer's coats were of better material. 20210604_174921.jpg 20210604_174944.jpg 20210604_175011.jpg

    Thanks Kev,
    Lots of work om that lace.
    Answering you question regardin the little banner on the trumpet, i've seen some illustrations with and without it, i think i will go for the non banner look for now

    I worked on the trumpet, simce it was a short trumpet from another era , i did add wire and lots of shaping, sanding and added a thin wire for the cords.
    The horse the trumpeter was mounted is supossed to be white or grey, so y did re-painted the horse as well.
