    Hello Planeteers,
    As if i don't have enough, here is another figure from Art Girona that i had for a while.
    The kit is missing the original head and hand with sword, i must have used for another project.
    Originally a continental Marine officer 1775.
    I am converting the figure to an officer of the Martinique Militia , Fort Royal Batallion as it must have looked in 1778.
    They had the old style uniform without collar or turndown collar, no lapels, but it is a very attractive uniform with an austere look.
