Finally my companions :D

 I like the idea to join the special one of the real guard with the blue ones, a good form to increase the army federal

 Zouaves, a wonder

 Excellent photos, I have enjoyed seeing them :o

Very nice photos! I see railroad tracks in one - maybe you can recreate the stealing of the locomotive The General (one of my favorite stories of the Civil War)?

Here are a couple of links to sites that talk about the chase...

just need to learn more about ACW uniforms

very nice customs and pictures cooster67!

need to learn from you;
did you paint light blue(but didnt have the same dearker blue paint) on some kepis to hide the calvary crossed swords or was it to depict a particular unit(with light blue tops)?

what made you decide to use the bodies & arms from the new captain?(and we dont even have the 2004 northerner here in my local stores :) )
....was it the stripes on his sleeves? (breast pockets were not 'invented' yet)

i mean to compare/learn...please do not take it as corrections/criticisms...i too do compromise history, since i dont use milliput or try not to do painting by hand...afterall they are toys...our toys :)

Hello Cheng,

The kepis are not painting.
I take a blue "pastille" in the front of them. :wink:
I think the new captain cool and buy 15 of them. I decide to transformate them in "yankees"
I know that i compromise history but aren't they original ? :D

no worries cooster67!
so you just wanted to conceal the swords..they do look nice..the two tone coloc :) for a moment i thought i could spray likewise too :D
yes, they are cool! i'm also green with envy because they wont be here for another 2 years :(
dont worry about history...mine too are sometimes compromised for originality and the beautiful toys that they make!
