    Cracking effort fella!
    But...I think if you do some research you'll find that you've painted a western African leopard skin whereas it's widely understood that Napoleon's guards only used southern African leopard skins.
    I mean, come on fella, if you're going to do this stuff at least make an effort to do your research!;)o_O;):wtf:
    Excellent work fella and looking forward to seeing the final result!
    For all those who thought I was serious of the mark that's what sucks the joy out of any hobby!

    Hi to all

    Spent yesterday putting together the sword and sabretache straps into place which then proceeded to break ....so now removed the resin straps and will be using lead sheeting ....

    Of course they will need totally repainting .....oh well he said gritting his teeth ...that's modelling !

    Started work on the white fur on pelisse
