Next up on the painting table are some JC recast French Line Carabiniers. The unit consists of 11 FN311 Line Carabiniers and 1 single figure casting FN106.
I decided to try and make a trumpeter using the FN106. Using my dremel I removed the carbine, cuirass, cartridge box an belt.
I tried making a trumpet however I could not get a reasonable result. I therefore made one using the trumpet and hand from a plastic Zveszda SYW Prussian Hussar.
Where the Carbine had been a used the point of a file to dot the metal to look like a sheepskin.
Finally I used a little bit of Miliput to add a sword hilt. I also used Miliput on the bases of all the cavalry to fill and smooth the bases.
