French Revolution Carabiniers

My original plan was to remove the bearskin and add a bicorne (or do a whole head swap) but I couldn't find a suitable donor figure. Therefore I just fell back on painting them as the 2nd Carabiniers inspired in part by Les Soldats de la Revolution Francaise by Funcken (online version)

Hi
To add a bicorne you could try the heads of Italeri 6007/Revell 02589 Prussian Cuirassiers
Best regards

Thanks Rafa, I had forgotten these, as I had already used them for other units. I should have more french heavy cavalry so I'll try and find another set on a B&B.
