    Excellently painted.
    When you say 'Humbrol', is that enamels or acrylics?

    Cheers,

    Great work as ever, Ben.

    However the 33rd wasn't called the Duke of Wellington's Regt at the time of Waterloo, it was still the 33rd (First West Riding of Yorkshire) Regt of Foot. It didn't get the association with Wellington until 1853, following the Duke's death in 1852. Sorry if this sounds pedantic but it's a common mistake which seems to keep recurring.

    I am starring at this kit which is sitting on my "to do" shelf as I type this. Very well done. Will save the photos for future reference.

    Hi Richard, thanks for the note. I think you are right. I had copy the title from the website...;)...
    I have searching the name in the book British Napoleonic Uniforms (written by Franklin) and the name is 33rd Regiment of Foot (or 1st Yorkshire West Riding).
    Thanks.
