    Yes, I think that was the original purpose but by the Empire they used chin straps/scales to serve that purpose.

    BTW: since retiring my time is cheap ;)

    If I remember correctly, the Eclaireur Dragoons, who wore a tall, tapered shako with a leather chinstrap, had additional cords which wrapped around the body to stop the headgear being lost.

    That is just what I am doing Nap, senior officer and with hair extensions as he was an ex hussar.

    There certainly is some great reference material coming out from this busts "faults".

    Great work Guys and thanks.

    Thanks for this Neil, some great additional reference material you’ve added which will hopefully benefit others tackling this bust. This is the great thing about this site.

    Great addition Bob- I have the book of Rousselot’s plates of the Imperial Guard and some great pictures which I did refer to when researching this.

    Some more progress on this one. I’ve made a start on the colpack and pelisse. Still got the flamme and plume to do and some washes/detailing on the lacework. Apologies for the photos but hopefully it gives an idea how things are progressing. 859F7057-33E0-46EF-845B-E35E94F76521.jpeg C731A44E-222A-4C6D-8A35-E91BCFC1A2B3.jpeg B9B81E05-FD59-4F57-9755-3A7EF4F1C266.jpeg 04646CD4-5875-4141-BE71-F81EEB1C47A4.jpeg B17645E1-02CF-438C-8E4C-0474C3BCB085.jpeg
