Royal Regiment of Horse Guards - The Blues

Posted by FredG on 25 Oct 2017, 18:58

I've finally decided to stop touching these up :shock: (paint wise that is). They'll do provided I don't magnify them too much so OK in one of the wall cabinets.

I think my favourite bit on these are the buckles and fasteners on the carbine strap. Unfortunately I haven't taken a photo of those so you'll just have to imagine how well they came out :-D

The riders are Revell set 2578 British Life Guards with adjustments.

The horses are Italeri set 6080 French Light Cavalry to get the shabraques

I suspect it was a bit of a chore to get Revell cavalrymen to fit correctly on to Italeri steeds.

Without going into a full pictoral tutorial, how did you manage?

I'd love to say that it took hours of intricate carving and a few ingenious innovations but they fitted perfectly out of the boxes. :P
