Airfix Figures Converted as French Chasseurs

Painted back in the 1980s, one of my favourite conversions.  I painted the horses after two of my pet collies: Campbell a sable and Jason a grey.

The French infantry officer is a rather obvious conversion, but the US Cavalry conversion is more interesting and I think a better pose.  From memory I had to use the French infantry trumpeter head as it was closer to the US Cavalry figure scale.

In my 1/72nd scale Napoleonic collection this unit has the code C04 and my notes say the unit represents the 16th Chasseurs.

  1. Brilliant conversions - like the carbines, they are a nice touch.
