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".
