The way you wear your hat: modifying Toy Soldiers of San Diego kepis

Hello toy soldier enthusiasts,  here's another attempt at a "how to" video in which I play 54mm. habedasher
to some dismounted cavalry.

You can view the video by clicking here.

Unmodified kepi on right, modified kepi on left

See you on the 1st of the month.

Soldier on!

Nice results. I'll have to try that.

"Really nice 54mm figures...EVEN Better"

Brilliant! I used to cut the front slope to make 20/25mm cowboys into ACW, after taking of the rim, but that Nail just does the best-est job!

Mannie, I tried the hot nail method last night and it worked pretty well on my TSSD troops. I'm going to try a smaller nail to make a depression in the cap to make Franco-Prussian War kepis.
