    Agreed Bob, the percussion cap pouch would be worn low down on the right side, sometimes the coatee had a small pocket added rather that the pouch. Here is the 38th Foot version in the Staffs regiment museum.(y)

  8. Thanks guys, it now in the new releases and as you can see I changed the shape of percussion pouch and lowered it and raised the epaulettes as the stiffener had gone in the museum piece. This matches the pack as its most likely early Crimea so they wouldn't really have dropped then which they would in prolonged wet weather.

    I did speak to a couple of people and the pouch was either on the belt or low on the cross strap. As there is no belt on the bust I put it a low as I could on the strap, I wanted to include it and it's where he could grab into easily. The instruction now also state buff or leather but I also included the piece Bill did for me as reference as the bust is based on his work.

    The pack is also now a seperate cast so you could put a blanket version for later in the Crimea without damaging the bust, it was a worrying day dremeling that off lol


    Sorry also you got wind of this via Chuck or Steve at SK. They are good to me carrying stock and when they place an order it's easier for all of us if I can include anything I have nearly ready. I cast theirs up first and then was building stock before release but as, and with thanks, I have had a few messages, I have released now. It's mentioned on the website if you can give me 5 working days at worse to post depending on how popular it is, I have half a dozen here ready but you never know.
    My apologies to you gents as I know many of you are and have been loyal to me
    Thanks and best wishes

  9. Here he is with the little changes but I must emphasise it's a superb sculpt and Offo was using museum references of today.
    All the best and thanks

    I was drawn back to look again at this one, it is is so full of energy
    I think it would look best if tilted slightly forward and also
    to the left.
    It would show more purpose and momentum.
    loving it totally.
