Dutch Marine ( airfix conversion)

Posted by paul haring on 30 May 2016, 18:53

I based my conversion on this picture in an old Military Modelling issue


It's a grenadier of the 21 st Marine Regiment Westerloo ( 1782-88)
At first I thought this was going to be a simple conversion, but no way!
I'm basicly using the Airfix British Grenadier 1776. Sanded down all the details.Legs are from the French Infantryman.I have to construct the arms by myself because no other arm in my spare-box would fit.
I altered the fur cap: made it higher and removed the front plate. A lot of work has still to be done. But it's a nice alternative when I have to wait working on my Lancer nr 10 whilst drying
