    I like your approach to the shoes Wong. It looks to me like the foot needs more heel though. The calf seems to taper into the foot instead of having the slight swell at the foot. Am I explaining this okay?

    Hey kenneth, looking forward to your painted figure.


    Hey John, Yes, it does seem the way that you describe it. I will be adding some putty to the back of the foot. Thanks for pointing that out.

    A happy and enjoyable weekend to both of you.

    Hi Wong!

    I echo everyone when I say great sbs.

    Here's some pics of VERY accurate Civil War reproduction shoes.

    Note the square toe. This is a common shape in most 19th century (and before that) military and civilian footwear. Even "field" worn shoes retain this shape. I'll post some pic's of original CW era shoes if you would like :)

    Hey Roc and Jason, thanks for the kind words.

    BTW Jason, I am very grateful for what you have done. I will modify the shoes according to the pics that you shared. That's the great thing about this forum, sharing and helpful members.

    I wish both of you a wonderful weekend.

    regards :lol:

    Hey Gary,

    Thanks. Currently i am having some problems with my computer. I will be re-installing the OS and such. In short, reformatting everything therefore it may be a couple of days before there is any update.

    I have started to modify my shoes according to what Jason had posted. Hopefully I will be able to post it on this site soon. The next in line SBS will be the pants.

    Dear Kenneth, Guy and Roc,

    Thanks for the kind words. I am currently working on the cap pouch and cartridge box. Hopefully it's ready by the next weekend.

    As for the pants, it's almost done except for some minor touch up.

    Dear folks,

    I have attached a sequence of pics showing the scratch building of the cap pouch. Each step is only carried out when the previous has hardened. As for the catch, I craved it out of a toothpick.

    Hope you like it. The next piece of accoutrements that I will post will be the cartridge box.

    regards :lol:
