Thanks for sharing so many details and your thoughts as you brought this one back to life! Now we need a musical ride with all your lancers, guards and hussars to help celebrate the queens jubilee

    So many people to thank for ideas on this one Dave. I first had a gun to repair. Then - I saw Obee painting a Steam Tractor for Luiz (Artillery Crazy) - and I just had to have one too. Then I found another gun - and GICOP showed me all of his Oxen (sixteen of 'em and drovers too) - and that set me off down that path. Then Obee again advised that they would require an armed escort! - so off I went on that idea too.

    All of the parts came from Dorset Model Soldiers - either in whole -or bits and pieces - so thanks also go to Andy for those. So.....thanks guys for all of your inputs.

    Musical ride ......................I'll wait for my Mounted Life Guard Band in State Uniform - to provide the music first Dave - and then I will order that troops will muster for parade.

    I have been promised them for this Xmas, (though that did happen once before - and never did!) - BUT THIS time, I think they will turn up. They have been ordered.

    So...........maybe next spring?? ( I'll have to assemble and paint 20 figures).

    Cheers all - jb
