Are there some models in 25/28mm of them?

I live in hope that someone will make a decent 28mm plastic kit of light dragoons in Tarleton. There are a LOT of possibilities for such a kit, but the City Troop would certainly be high on my list.

Those are NOT American Revolution Light Horse.

You are correct. This is a volunteer militia cavalry uniform, quite possibly of the Philadelphia Light Horse, of the period between the War of 1812 and the Civil War.

Yeah, I use the Perry box for Napoleonics--and MAYBE you could find a War of 1812 City Troop uniform you could get away with. But it's really the AWI I keep thinking of--a glorious variety of colorful cavalry units which seems almost designed for one of the modern "build your own regiment" hard plastic kits.

Of course, I can't even buy an RHA box yet, and I'd have expected that very early in the plastics boom.

That is the current parade dress of Troop A, 1st Squadron, 104th Cavalry Regiment, 28th Infantry Division (United States), Pennsylvania Army National Guard.

Ah yes…

A Troop…

Love them. Hate them. They are still a part of 1/104 Cav…

It's actually post-1812, if I remember correctly.

Tom Farley, I think, is still the curator of the museum they have on the third floor of the Armory at 23rd and Ranstead in Philly.

My last Dining-In there, back in 2004, was held there. It was just amazing to be able to see all the artefacts.
