    Thought it high time i had better update this work on here so here are the latest images of whats been happening. I have been working on the two napoleonic troops for the street scene, i decided to do one as a 7th(bis) Hussar and the other as a Reg`t des Dromadaires.
    Still lots to do yet but i am nearing the end slowly.

    Hey there mate:

    Wow, these are looking good. Like the way the weight is shifted on the pipe
    smoking figure. Hope you'd be willing to say, here, more about how you
    make the metal connecting linkage for the sword scabbard and for the belt
    up over the shoulder, et cetera. It looks like you fabricated the belts from
    sheet brass. Is that so? And if so, what thickness would it be. And finally,
    how do you fashion those metal loops on the scabbard to hold the straps that
    attach to the sword belt. Will there be news at Eleven??? (y)(y)

    Should I stay tuned??? :confused::confused:

    Carl...thanks mate much appreciated.

    Rick...I made the scabbard connectors/cartridge belt and waist belt using thin alliminium foil. The rings on the scabbard were made by wrapping thin wire around a needle then cutting, they were then passed under the foil strips and CA glued to secure, i then wrapped some thin wire around the edge of each strip to create a profile like the original. It sounds complicated but with some care and some good optics it is easily done.

    Since these images i have removed the waist belt and redone it due to the fact i left out the 3 rings which are part of the belt for the sword and sabretache straps to connect to, only just found the new reference for it today.

    All the best,
