Hi , friends.

Thank you all for the comments.
I hope next week to finish the Prussian cavalry. Next I will work in the infantry, Bismarck and Kaiser. Then it will be the turn of the French troops.
I will also try to post some tutorial photos.

Hi , friends. :thumbup:

I'm glad you're enjoying the work. Many thanks.

How am I doing the conversions:

- I use part of existing figures. Another part I do modeling, master sculpture and then copies in white metal.

- In the Hussars, the master figure was made without an arm so I could use parts of the French Italeri hussars.

Image

Image

- Prussian cuirassiers were made using the body of Russian napoleonic cuirassiers from manufacturer Zvezda.
Image

Image

- In line still, are in order of waiting, the French cuirrassiers, hunters of Africa and zouaves.
