    I think it could be interesting to paint it in the colors of the Legion of allobroguress, I have seen different versions and I like one I saw in all green, including trousers and vest, green coat and red lapels.
    Love the subject Andrea and I hope I could be of some help.
    Best regards

    I also forgot about the detail of the pointed lapels at the bottom and pointed cuffs, both typical of light infantry, so you will not have to do much of a conversion cause it will fit perfect for a trooper of the legion.
    Looking forward to see it soon!!.
    Bon chance

    Yes, I think that I will make a rifleman or a chasseur of the Legion .. you've convinced me! The only annoyance is that I have to work a little on trousers....

    Great idea Andrea and Daniel.
    I look forward to seeing what you do with this. I hope you post some in progress pics, especially during the conversion process. For information on that era, Daniel is the guy to help.

    Best regards

    i see what you are saying about the pants.
    making the gaiters is probably not that easy but i am sure you will do a great job.
