US Army Horse Cavalry
During the Interwar Period between the First and Second World Wars, the US Army troops often wore this flat hat on duty.
I wanted to create a small unit of these men so I have been doing some head swaps.
Some of you will no doubt recognize the blue figure as being from the Airfix American Civil War Cavalry set.
The head is from the Airfix World War One British Infantry.
Cut the heads off and insert a piece of #8 guitar string into the body.
Put a drop of gap filling super glue on the wire and press the British head onto the Civil War body.
Put a dab of E6000 glue on the saddle and press the rider down into place.
The horses are from Eagle Games, they sell whole boxes of one piece horses in black, brown, or gray.
