    HI Kev
    It is a nice figure 75mm is my favourite scale ; great quality in the casting on this one ; French Napoleonic has always been my first love in modelling and the Pegaso 75mm series is the best value on the market IMHO :D

    Nice start with this Ron. Will be pulling up a chair for this one.
    Is this the same one you were asking about uniform colours the other week?

    Yes Barrie ! I thought it was a Hussar but turns out he is a line Chasseur officer and more likely an aid de camp with that fancy uniform , always thought line chasseurs were pretty plain re uniforms :)

    Superb casting and sculpt from M Bruno

    Nothing is plain when it comes to uniform with these fashionable Frenchies ;-).
    You are doing a great work so far , the reds look very vivid and certainly nice on the figure.
    Regards
