Hello mates...

5th New York City Infantry Regiment.

Some inaccuracies as usual...
I'm running out of suitable Zouave figures (a shame as I'd like to do the 146th New York Volunteers) so I had to use the more modern figures from the Emhar set. Added a bit of glue to disguise the bolt as a lock and it's done. Do more would drop my production rithym... :-D
And once mixed with all their shelf mates, they do the job well. At least at my low level of demand.

Now I see that the eagle on the flag is facing backwards. :eh:
I'm getting clumsy... :( Even more than before... :xd:
Oh boy...

All the best!
Joan

Beautifully painted and as atmospheric as always.

Personally, I would remove the eagles. They look very big and the actual real thing is quite small. However, Abe the battle Eagle of a Wisconsin regiment I believe ( I think it died of smoke inhalation from memory) was an actual eagle.

A suggestion would be, cut foil or paper perhaps.

Best wishes,

Chris

These are looking great, as always, and a nice addition to your ACW collection. Those New Yorkers always were flash dressers!
