Temping as a Quality Inspector for a large plastic and foam materials company. Toy Soldier Painter, semi-retired from Reenacting the US Civil War and American Revolution. Lovely wife and one grown son and a nearly grown daughter.
These Civil War guys were sitting in limbo in a box as French Gard Mobile ..meh!
I started painting a few as the First Minnesota at First Bull Run. Some sources have them in gray uniform the regiment acquired on the way to Washington and others in a red shirt and the "Hardee Hat". I added "Hardee Hats" from Armies In Plastic Iron Brigade figures.
I took another eight figures became Confederate infantry in home made "Battle Shirts."
