I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.

I like your new avatar, Flash!

The Captain's rank on your shoulder boards is great! How did you make them? They're much better than the, very hard to see, ones that Playmobil prints on the shoulders.

All the best,
Richard

Thank you very much Richard! I'm glad you like him!
I used removable (self-adhesive) labels to make those shoulder ranks.
I again have to say thank you to funky (whom i havent seen in far too long btw) for the idea. I tried around a bit but I believe I found the best size (h0.85cm x w0.37cm). 
However I have decided to change the Setting and give it a more realistic backround, I hope I will find the time to do this during the we!
If anybody is interested in these kind of ranks, I strongly recommend visiting the
United States Army Insignia Home Page!
It contains US-Army rank insignias from the american revolutionary war until modern times (including Confederate rank insignias from the ACW), so it sure is worth a look! ;)
Thanks again for your encouraging comment Richard!  ;D

Regards,
Flash
