I was given these miniatures nearly 40 years ago as a child. I had found them to give away but then I played a game of Blucher and decided to paint them.

I am not sure where the folds should be in the jacket tail for me to paint the outer blue jacket and the inner white folds.

Any pictures of your Airfix French Line infantry would be appreciated.

I realize these are old miniatures and not necessarily all that accurate but I would like to paint them give they were given to me so long ago.

This is not a period that I was interested in so I have surprised myself.

Ok here is an update.

Making the most out of these Airfix French Line infantry

Slow progress

Poor molding, so why do these French have a bicycle U lock

Miscalculation, I need 18 miniatures for a base not 12. Still looking good

Hey Tiberius!

I remember having these figures in the 70's! You're doping some good work with ordinary sculpts! Champion!

Cheers
