One of my interests is painting 54mm plastic soldiers. This fellow is painted as a sergeant of the Continental Light Infantry during the American Revolution. He originally came from a bag of poorly-cast American Revolution soldiers that I bought at Williamsburg. For two years he was shuffled around in the closet, until I embarked on painting him. But I ran out of steam quickly and back to the closet he went. Finally, last year I pulled him out of the closet and painted him. But he is not my only light infantryman. He has five comrades, whom I hope to show soon (as soon as I glue on their red-and-black plumes).
Figure by BMC, paints by Testors, varnish by Winsor & Dammar. The plume is made of two pipe cleaners connected by model cement.
