    Hello folks,
    I have been wanting to work on this for quite a while but i tought i wouldn't be able to make this conversion.
    I am using the body of a fusilier, got rid of the bayonet frog near the right lower lapel, downsized the cartridge box and used a spare banded head to make the helmet.
    The Belsunce Dragoons wore present at Yorktown, some sources say about 50 of them along with colonial troops as part of St. Simon contingent.

    Far too small Daniel!!!!!!
    I do like the Dragoon Uniform and the base casting looks right for it.
    Have fun My Friend.

    Hello folks,
    I've made some progress today.
    The Helmet is almost finished, added the turban arounf the belmet. And some details on top of the crest, once is dry and hard i will try to add the lion head badge in front of the crest and other details on the har.

    I've added the side curls and banded pony tail of his wig.
    All in all i am happy with the result.
    Cheers 20150503_144912.jpg 20150503_143120.jpg 20150503_144855.jpg
