    Hi planeteers,

    I haven't been much of a Napoleonic fan up to now, but I recently got this 120mm kit to start with.


    The kit has terrible fit problems, getting the horse halves to stick together was a nightmare.
    I managed to overcome the assembly problems and it's currently primed and ready to receive base colors.

    My problem now is that I am not sure the boxart picture is historically correct and I don't have any reference for this regiment.
    Tried to google it, but unfortunately not much came up in terms of references for uniform colors, equipment, ranks & badges.
    Therefore, I'd appreciate any help given by the "Nap fans" here.

    The thick plottens!
    I'm no expert, but this looks like the 2nd Westphalian:-

    Hopefully, someone who really knows will confirm the correct answer.

    Thank you all for these references, very much appreciated. :)
    Though it's still not clear to me if the 1st regiment trumpeters trousers were white, grey or light brown . o_O

    Here is another plate, it looks like a very light buff on this one. :confused:
