54mm Napoleonic Officer

And now for something completely different...

Here's a 1:32 scale plastic Historex Napoleonic Officer I built and painted as a gift for my grandfather.

This is actually the 2nd Napoleonic figure I've made by Historex and I'm actually really glad I don't have to build another again! It was a lot of work sanding, gap-filling, and reworking much of the braiding from wire to make this kit look even half-way decent. My advice if you're interested in larger-scale figures like this is to spend the extra money and buy metal. The detailing is much more crisp, you won't have to spend a lot of time reworking joints/gaps, and they are just plain more fun to build!
