I was given these miniatures nearly 40 years ago as a child. I had found them to give away but then I played a game of Blucher and decided to paint them.

I am not sure where the folds should be in the jacket tail for me to paint the outer blue jacket and the inner white folds.

Any pictures of your Airfix French Line infantry would be appreciated.

I realize these are old miniatures and not necessarily all that accurate but I would like to paint them give they were given to me so long ago.

This is not a period that I was interested in so I have surprised myself.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Ok here is an update.

Making the most out of these Airfix French Line infantry

Slow progress


Poor molding, so why do these French have a bicycle U lock



Miscalculation, I need 18 miniatures for a base not 12. Still looking good

Nice work! Maintaining consistency with so many teeny little figs is difficult but you've overcome that obstacle with elan.
