Lancer reg nr 2 1841-1849 (54 mm)

This miniature is from the '200 jaar Nederlandse krijgsmacht'van de Nederlandse Stichting voor Modelfiguren. ( not available anymore).
Painting is done in acrylics: Valejo, Citadel and Revell. Painting a metal figure is different from plastic figures like Airfix. Details are not that sharp ( Maybe it does with the more expensive figures...)
I had to add the details like aguilettes. I made them from twisted copperwire.

Very nicely done sir! Adding the aguilettes using wire is a great touch and fills out the figure. Excellent work.

Well, this isn’t airfix. Unlike my other work this one is metal. So no cutting and hacking, just paint and adding details
