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

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.

Hi , friends.

Taking advantage of the conversion ideas I am doing on the topic Airfix Fort Sahara, I am also creating some French marines. I hope you like it . Some are simple conversions, just changing Emhar's French infantry heads and removing the epaulettes from their shoulders.

The Kaiser and Bismarck are watching the gradual increase of French forces. :mrgreen:

Hi friends.
many thanks for the comments.

Michel.
I'm not a figures dealer.
As you can see in my topics, my work is handcrafted. I have no centrifuge and my molds are not industrial to make figures in quantity to be commercially viable. However, if you are not in a hurry and still, if you wish, I could mold some figures and produce some copies. Send me a private message to let me know.

Regards.
