    Shaping up nicely Kevin.
    I like the picture of the Bugler as well. We don't see too many Highlander Buglers.

    The bugler is 72nd I think and it looks like the Crimea medal, he's a bandsman.

    Mc Nap,
    On a serious note just love to have a 1/9th Bust depicting each of the Scottish Regiments and Irish Regiments dated 1881. In various Dress Order, Ranks,and Trades, so as to break up the monotony of similar uniforms.
    I Have even thought of commissioning it myself:nailbiting:

    Just remember the Watch have a dark blue/black square at the intersection of the bonnet dicing. He probably wished he was 93rd but not everybody can! Looking good matey.
