    Hi,

    The size is 65 mm. (more than 90% paper card)

    The rifle, a chassepot, has metal parts (wand and cannon).

    As you see the uniform has some similitudes with infantry uniform of Civil War... Keep cool Zathros !;-)... soon. I hesitate between the cavalry and artillery.sign1

    Yeah, he does sort of resemble a Zouave infantryman, nice job.

    Hi Valmy,

    I am always amazed at the variety of uniforms that were used during the Civil War period. Some of them seem to be totally impractical from a modern day perspective and you have to wonder what they had in mind other than offering an excellent target. But they sure did not lack for courage on either side, advancing upon one another in long lines across open fields. Regardless, they did offer us modelers a large range of interest to choose from.

    That's true but I think that we will be surprise if we can travel in time cos I'm not sure that they use really their uniforms parade.
