    Hello all Planetters:)

    I have the intention to create a 54 mm diorama of the Crimean War, specifically from the Battle of the Alma. This idea is inspired by the painting "The 33rd (Duke of Wellingtons) Regiment storming the Great Redoubt at the Battle of Alma, 20th September 1854" by David Rowlands.


    Looking for help, namely:

    I need to flags appearance of the 33rd regiment in battle (1854) I have only flags appearance from Waterloo and the current flags appearance only.

    Furthermore, I am looking for information on Russian artillery and infantry (foot soldiers and officers form, differentiation of regiments that defended the Great Redoubt - in places where attacked 33rd regiment). I have both the Osprey MAA by the Russian Army of Crimean War and Campaign Inkerman and Balaclava, but the information is not sufficient.

    Also I am looking for detailed documentation of Russian heavy artillery deployed to defend Redoubt. One gun should be in diorama.

    I would appreciate any information, whether specific text or images, links to websites or book titles. If I can gather enough background materials, I posted here this diorama WIP process.
    If anyone among you who can help, I will be very grateful to you. The realization of this diorama is my longtime dream, perhaps it therefore succeed. It could be commercially released, some interest've seen.

    Thanks so much for any possible answers.

    Cheers Borek:)

    Sorry for my (translator) English
