A new addition

I haven't added much to my ACW collection lately, work is the biggest culprit and me getting easily sidetracked is another. So I added some transport to my Confederate forces!
 It is again Dixon miniatures and a splendid piece it is. I know I'm biased both with the Confederate forces and with Dixon miniatures. 
 I didn't use the cover that came with the kit, i added wire loops and PVA soaked tissue to form the cover. I had already used the PVA soaked tissue to make the cover on my first wagon, so it made sense to use the same method again. The driver I altered slightly due to my OCD on making things my own.
The chains were added to give that extra bit of detail without going OTT, it involves a little bit more work but seems worth it in the long run. 
 So just the reins to add and it's finished, I just need to pick up some more dental floss next time I'm out and about. 

So thanks for looking 
Cheers for now Russ

    1. Thanks Michal, I've neglected my ACW collection of late I'm afraid but time allowing I will get a chance to remedy that.

    1. Thank you, I'm working on a couple of new units for my Reb Cavalry and slowly but surely on a Reb unit of infantry.
