Thanks for making me aware of this KS. They look like superb sculpts. I pledged.

Hate to quibble but the shakoes seem a bit tall.

AIUI a Belgic shako was a Tommy Cooper fez with a false front about the same dimensions as the peak. It looked rather grotty, was widely slagged off and rapidly replaced.

I think it is appropriate to sometimes slightly exaggerate features in sculpting. It gives a better effect than being totally scale accurate. Don't see any problem with these figures. We do the same thing when we chose colours for painting figures. I tend to use a slightly lighter hue than was historical because of the smaller surface area and dark rooms generally gamed in.

Maybe they are tall but my calipers say they are EXACTLY the same size as the Perry ones in this scale, so just shows you how deceptive pictures can be.

@4th Cuirassier; you have a valid point.

I just checked my Franklin uniform bible and the shako plate should be centered equal distance from the shako base and top. Also, the top the shako is flat not rounded as portrayed in the photo. Only the sides of the false front are rounded.

In fact this shako looks more like an American "tombstone" shako, discounting the badge and the way the cords are draped.

If the top of the false front were flattened it would be just fine. Then again, maybe the photo is deceiving us.

These are still nicely sculpted figures with lots of character and I don't regret my pledge.

thanks chaps, project is 200% funded now so def going ahead, all master moulded and awaiting funds for production moulds, So there will be no delay in the March target for dispatch. And yes tops of shakos is an error, should be flatter by the time production moulded. ;)

Great to see a positive response to what was a helpful bit of feedback. I have done a bit of processing on a couple of pics and they do look better with a flatter false front.

Much variation, esp in reproductions and re-enactors, but extant caps (mostly officers') do show the flatter upper edge.
