Red Facings in Progress. . .

Just the coat-tails and some touching up left, and we are ready for the two coats of Future/Klear acrylic floor finish!

Spent a couple of hours painting red collars, cuffs, and turnbacks last night. Just the coat-tails left now plus the white lace in pairs on top of the turned back lapels. Then, it's on to the two coats of protective "varnish" tomorrow evening. I can next carefully pop them off their bottlecaps Wednesday evening, and the unit will be finished. . . FINALLY. Meanwhile, I've got 13 Garrison Prussian artillery crew waiting in the queue to be painted as Schaumburg-Lippe-Buekeburg troops. See the illustration below. . .
