    A nice idea and, as others say, love the puffing cheeks.

    Just a few ref pics which may be useful:

    Feather bonnet (officers): note its 'stringy' appearance

    A piper would no doubt have more feathers, but this is interesting.

    Ostrich feathers: and a feather duster showing how they cluster (us older types will remember them)

    79th's pipes (probably): note the relative length of the drones

    A great half figure.
  9. Thank you Neil, that is really useful information.
    I think the ostrich feathers are the max I can do for casting, they show the individual feathers but need some bulk to cast.
    The pipes are an excellent reference and as these pics are the master pics I can add an extra length to the kit to extend the large drone as required.
    Many thanks and best wishes

    Hi Graham,

    Yes, I think that getting any hair/feather trim 'right' is a real challenge (to say the least). I think the issue to my eyes is the 'scale' effect of the l/h side of the bonnet.... but having said that I'm sure that once painted this will not be so obvious.
