French sailor heads
« on: January 27, 2021, 08:24:38 AM »
I think French sailor heads with the little bobble on top would be a useful addition, particularly for WWI. I am thinking here of the French sailors sent to assist the Belgians against the German invasion. These would make a very nice addition to the extensive Belgian range. By 1914 the French sailors appear to have been issued the standard French infantry coat, so a head swap is all that would be needed.

Probably a good idea.
Sadly it will need to wait a while though.
In the mean time maybe use duro or milliput small blobs on sailor hats?

Even pin heads would give the effect.
