The Second US Cavalry as portrayed in SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON. (XIII)

Visits: 117

Well, some details done! BUT I have to do the hair and the “faces” yet… meaning eyes, eyebrows and mouths… beards are fairly easy…

Finally did (not yet finished) the yellow colour!

Black stripes on the saddle bag.

Doing neckties too! Had to consult the film again to get them right!

Now… next week it would be the horses… if I do not gloss varnish the soldiers first… always nagging doubts… if I do varnish with gloss the riders and let them dry they will provide a very good hold to grip while doing the horses… I do not want chipping now… at all…
