Five-minute Field Modification

Okay, more like ten minutes.

Utilizing the redundant saddles from the Imex 7th Cavalry sets and those uncharacteristically beautifully-sculpted downed, and saddle-less, horses from BMC/Americana, a little carving and plastic "welding", one is greeted by this usable combination:


Add a wounded Toy Soldiers of San Diego trooper and the combination is pretty compelling:



Soldier on!

Great little toy horses. BMC's accessories are often superior to the troops. The Little Big Horn sets sold at Toys R Us did not include the dead horses with extra arrows. I heard they were thought as too cruel while the set I got there did have the dead men. The Airfix US cavalry is great except for the sabers if one play the Little Big Horn. Your conversions look pretty good.

I did pretty much the same but painted the horse. Nice job
