    Default Horse Marines

    The seahorse unit - a mounted unit of US marines guarding the US embassy in China. I came across a great book on this unit and liked the idea of modelling a tall US marine mounted on a small pony.

    The horse was modified from a 1/32 scale Masterbox horse, in reality a 1/35 scale beast. I substituted the head and built up the limbs and proportions on the horse. The saddle blanket is a metal sheet. The figure was made up from a Scalelink head, an Airfix torso and a couple of Historex boots. I have a large inventory of these parts and can have fun picking and choosing the right parts for all my conversions. The stone lion statue is a cheap resin souvenir.
