Airfix French Napoleonic Artillery

This was one of my favourite sets and as a gamer I always like my French artillery openning up the battle.

But something went horribly wrong with that photo - that is not the right blue at all (from memory it was a Humbrol blue, enamel paint).

Still not right ...

Hmmm ... that's more the correct colour.  The flash was the cause of the colour change I think.

These two guns were painted a good 10 years apart, but around 30 years ago. I actually have a gun and crew from the Ecsi Old Guard artillery ready to paint, but not sure if it will ever get done.


  1. I take my hat off to you...a great little set and great painting of it...I still have enough sets of this to construct "le grande batterie".

    1. Thanks Paul. Sorry for the late recognition.
