I added a Lifeguard to my collection of 1/16 toys. He's currently guarding books in the library and really top notch job he's doing of it too.

You can see some pics here.

And here I was expecting a David Hasselhoff model.

That is very nicely done.

I'm jealous, Conrad.

OK, humor me here, somebody. I thought in olden days (the 1960s) Life Guards wore white horsehair plumes on their helmets and Horse Guards wore red. Thinking my memory might be off, or maybe trumpeters were different, I Googled it, and found pictures of Life Guards with both white and red plumes. What's the deal here? Does the plume color indicate troop or squadron? Did they get left over helmet when Horse Guards merged with Dragoon Guards?


P.S. I thought the painting was quite good--I just wondered about the plume color--We wargamers are so picky! -G-

By the by, a red plume is worn by trumpeters – farriers have a black plume

I was kinda hoping it would be Pamela Anderson myself.
