Alguhan Akşar painted Pegaso Models 54 mm vignette Battle of Camerone. A good story to read with nice photos, especially for our French friends.

Very good work Algu. I've always been interested in the French Foreign Legion (Not enough to join ) They still parade Captain Danjou's wooden arm on the anniversary of the battle.

Thanks alot friends.
I began to paint them last year and painted slowly one by one between other projects.
It is an old Pegaso product, and they are not producing it anymore. A very nice kit to paint.

Pat, yes I've read about this. However I would like to see one of the officer's hand sculpted in that shape in this vignette and paint it as Danjou. This officer in the vignette is wearing the uniform of a second lieutenant, regarding the booklet of the vignette kit.
