    Nice work.
    But some colors are not true (The lanyard should be black leather with a silver stitch and with a silver tassel, the collar of the greatcoat should be black, buttons on the greatcoat should be white metal).

    In photos at the beginning of the topic, the helmet and the sword are related to later years (1808 and 1826 respectively).
    In 1803-1808, soldiers and officers of the Chevalier Guard Regiment were armed with either a cuirassier guardsman's sword of 1798, or a chevalierguard's sword of 1802.

    Are you talking about helmets or about the swords for 1805?

    Initially, I meant here these photos at the beginning of the topic:
    111.jpg

    Fail1 - Hilt of the sword is similar to the Dragoon soldier, mod. 1797.
    Музей военной формы одежды - палаш драгунск. солд.jpg

    Fail2 - Cuirassiers Sword, mod. 1826.
    1826.jpg

    Fail3 - Helmet of officer Guards heavy cavalry for marching, model 1808 (and since 1812, for the parade also).
    1812.jpg


    Thus, for 1805, the following items will be correct for an officer of the Chevalier Guard Regiment:
    Swords such as I showed in the message above:
    палаш кирасирский гвардейкий 1798 г.jpg
    cuirassier guardsman's sword of 1798,
    or
    палаш кавалергардский обр 1802 г.jpg
    chevalierguard's sword of 1802.
    The sword of the model of 1802 can be seen on the portrait of the Chevalier Guard Regiment officer who i posted above.

    Also on this fragment the lanyard is marked with an arrow.
    And this is a modern reconstruction.

    Helmets officer's Guards heavy cavalry - a thick plume of white feathers with a black finish, a black leather chinstrap without metal scales.
