    Good work, but there are historical inaccuracies both in painting and in the sculptural part.

    01.jpg
    The plume on the helmet was still not like a foam or a sponge, and on a bust scale it is still very noticeable in comparison with smaller figurines.

    And the greatcoat collar should be black at the Chevalierguards.


    02.jpg
    The sword-knot of officers of the Russian cavalry (except for hussars and later horse jagers) was made of black leather with a stitch of silver thread at the edges. The tassels were silver; at the field-officers they were with figures made of foil;

    among the company-officers they were simple.

    The hilt of the Chevalierguard broadsword was completely different, namely the one shown in these photos.

    The buttons on the Chevalierguard should be silver and flat.

    Thank you guys for your comments!


    @svt:
    Thank you for your researches. Before I started to work at the bust I had several thoughts about fixing some points: at the end I decided not to correct the backswords hilt because of the complicated project and officers often used their personal swords. So this and the sword-knot were made different. Similar point to the regiments greatcoat where plates might be placed at the collar.

    The "hairy problem" on the helmet is well known but same thing like above: to many work for to low result. I painted it as it is...

    As for the conversion of the hilt of the broadsword, I agree that there is not an easy task, so let us leave this mistake to the conscience of the sculptor. As for your assertion that officers could use their broadswords at their own request, it is not true - after all, this is the Russian guard of the times of Alexander I, a zealous uniformist, like his brothers, who oversaw the army. So in the regular infantry, cavalry, and even more so the guard, everything was according to orders and uniform timesheets. There were exceptions only in the case of award weapons, but they had a different look, but here the guards cuirassier officer with a broadsword model 1798, which occasionally could be, but for lower ranks (for private and NCO), which was unacceptable.
    But as I wrote above, it remains on the conscience of the sculptor, as well as a plume on a helmet.

    Well, while the sword-knot is not difficult to repaint in real colors, there would be a desire to fix it. )))

    @Thodoros: Thank you too!

    @svt: I think it will not be fixed in the near future but I will remember it for further russian figures.
