    Hello,

    I present you my last finished bust for this year. It is a conversion of the very nice French Hussar bust, produced by Pegaso (scale 1/9).

    I haven't used both plaits of hair and the pigtail (add as metal parts).
    I cut away the plaits near his ears. I cut away the ball of the plume.
    I have modelled a part of the second belt and the button on the belt.
    So you can read, a simple conversion...

    I have used uniformrefences from different painters (Patrice Courcelle, André Jouineau etc...).

    Thanks for looking and a happy New Year!

    Ben

    Hello Nap, I use a mix of tan, red and yellow for the base. More tan and red for shadow. For highlight I use more yellow and a little bit white. All Humbrol enamels.
