    WOW, well sculpted and painted - but...:

    After my sources the uniform of this unit looked in some details a bit different - Don Troiani is actually quite reliable...:



    Means: Not a standing but a change-over collar, regimental badges on the collar, wider yellow cuffs, longer coat tails with pockets and the swallow nests on the shoulders looked different.
    And a cartridge pocket was worn in front of the belly.

    In addition, I think that the guys 1776 not with powdered wigs but with open hair (as in my pictures) were on the way ...

    Didn’t use those sources, used Osprey Soldiers of the Revolutionary War and photos of actual 26th Regiment uniform pieces on file in the collections of Armed Forces History, National Museum Of American History, Smithsonian Institution. Must better than a color print made around 200 years later.
