Hi friends.

I finished the painting of the French Foreign Legion after the WWI.
The information of the used references and the conversions are in the forum :

Well done, I especially like the two officers. What brand figures are these?

Wow! Very good job. They look like they came from a new boxed set of "French Foreign Legion: Inter-War Years". Maybe one of the miniature companies can start taking notes.

Hi friend West1871. :thumbup:
Very thanks. ;-)

Kepi I made using copies of the head of French officer WWI of the Airfix in silica mold and using resin Epoxi. Kepi of the officers had been modified to changed itself into kepi of the soldiers.
