Hey Francesco, congrats with a fine victory :thumbup: You did a very good job on him, and when the pictures showed up, I knew it was lost ;-)

@Jan: yes crappy pictures indeed ;-) But even with better pictures, Francesco should have won. He did the better paintjob :thumbup:

Thank you Peter for the compliments and for the opportunity to take part in a duel with you :thumbup:
My fig is not perfect and not much better than yours; I like the way you painted the coat (mine came out rather "patchy"). Moreover, you correctly painted the shoes black, while painting them in buff is an historical mistake: my fig is painted with the colors of the 8th continental regiment, and those guys had black shoes :oops: :-D

well done to both on some fine looking figures of the American Revolution. ( I would say that the shoes are moccasins thats why the light brown color, footwear was a big problem in ARW )

So!! judging by your "historical" mistakes with this figure maybe I got the flag Hussars right eh?? :-) ;-)
