New Heads for Old

Part of my project to provide music for the troops.  These two Esci Eight Army troops are being transferred to the American Army for World War One.  Many Americans are from Irish decent and so having a couple pipers for the Army is reasonable for WWI.

Head swap for the same figure to provide the Second World War Americans with bagpipe music.

Here is a cavalry soldier with Montana Peak Hat.

This guy is for the Interwar years.

The whole bagpipe band!

Roco made this guy and Aurora copied him.  I swapped out the head and made them for WWI, Cavalry, and Interwar time periods.  Gotta have phones. 

 Aurora copy of the Airfix US Marine figure, firing his .45.

He has transferred to the US Army Cavalry.

That's pretty creative w/ the head swaps.
(bagpipes for the troops...gonna be an interesting "band".)

Carry on.

Thanks G. Americans have long played the bagpipes as part of our collective Scottish / Irish heritage.
