    Hi Paul,
    Very nice, he's a good brother for Keith Carradine :)
    Have you removed the tassels under the head bag? Usually officers had, using the cords in parade dress, while in campaign they took away cords and tassels; if you can get another pair, you can put them on the left side of the colback, the tassels could stay also there.
    Best regards

    Hey Paul, it looks really nice. I would love to see it in better photos. They seem a little dark.

    Hello again mate, this looks really good from where I'm sitting. Look forward to seeing more. Agan as previously stated, I reckon better lighting will improv the photos. Although I'm no expert!

    You've done a very nice job here. What a beautiful uniform. I also thought of the movie "The Duelist" when I saw this. One of my favorites

    Excellent job, Paul. I'ts obvious that you have really put in the hours on him, and it shows in your rich detail and crisp lines.

    Bravo,

    Kyle ;)

    Paul, I have been watching this from start to end and I have to say you have pulled off one of my favorite units (the hussars) VERY well. Interesting that you chose one of the less colorful uniforms but made it all turn out so well. Very nice indeed ;)

    Hi guy's again,
    just a few more pic's as I progress,as Jim said,I'm not alone with my love of the Hussar uniform,but the only thing is they are so fussy to paint and the hardest part is making all the little bit's and bob's tie up and look good over all,I fear it look's bit of a mess still yet,but with a few hours tidying up should sort it out, well I hope? :(
    any way more later! ;)

    Best Regards

    Paul.
