Attached please find an attempt on my part to convert the Brunswick Hussars into the 7th Hussars in 1813. The shako's are blue with a red top.
I wonder if generic hussars with or without pelisse with several different types of shako/busby's have ever been considered by Hat. In view of the conversion possibilities offered by for example the British peninsular army it should be technically possible. Realistically the only good plastic sets on the markt are Italeri's french hussars, the Brunswickers although there headgear is very unique and your prussian 1815 hussars. The latter are not so easy to convert into other hussars. The later Russians are adequately covered by Zvezda. It is just a thought. Meanwhile, I keep looking forward to your new sets addicted as I am to 1/72.
Many thanks to Ton.
