The following are some Russian Army conversions sent in by Mr. Francesco Messori of Italy:
"The first are Guard Cossaks made with HaT ones, some in summer dress, and some in winter dress."
"Here are Russian Lituanian ulhans, made with ESCI Polish lancers and HaT Russian dragoons horses (those horses can be used for most of the Russian cavalry units, and painted they look better than the sculpture itself). I used also some rolled greatcoats taken by HaT Dutch cavalry."
"Russian dragoons. These are HaT ones at all! Are the uniforms before 1809 with the caterpillar helmet. the trumpet is made with french chasseurs a cheval ones and the flag is made by me."
"Here some generals... you can see Koutuzof seated and around him many officers and generals. The Pavlov grenadiers on line behind. I made also two guard cossaks officers, one with the etendard, and one guard hussar officer."
Many thanks again to Mr. Francesco Messori for sending in his contribution.
