LG2, that is SO COOL!!! :hat After all this time seeing your stuff on multiple boards, I had no idea that you portray Kit Carson for California's State Park System! (That would explain something about how you know the Ft. Tejon Dragoon reenactors.) That's fantastic!I've been Kit Carson for Cal State Parks for 20 years this December now. :lol
Grizzerr, here's one I'd done a few years ago - 8thTexasCav, I hope you would pardon me to highjack your thread :Well done!! I don't believe I've seen a figure from that era before.
Saint, I don't mind at all. I remember commenting on your Dragoon on another board and stating that I really wanted to put together a Dragoon myself. The shako on your Dragoon is an absolute masterpiece!!! Great work!Grizzerr, here's one I'd done a few years ago - 8thTexasCav, I hope you would pardon me to highjack your thread :
A great figure from a often forgotten time in American history. KneeJoint You would have enjoyed my California education. At the grade school I attended we had a Fort made out of old telephone poles and made powder horns from cow horns. They were right from the slaughter house. Some of us guys even made fake flint locks. The fort no longer stands (it was fifty tears ago :wail) The trees srounding it still stand and we all know the status of even a nail clipper in public schools these days. My Sixth grade teacher wrote a history of the town I grew up in and is still alive. She's the type you don't have that much in education these days. But the fort was a school thing and the entire school participated. And history of America and California were right up there with math and science.I just wanted to come back for another look and to say a big "THANK YOU" for posting this. I am always interested in new bits of History. Been spending the morning doing searches on Ft. Tejon, Kern County, Central California and Southern California around the 1800 and 1900. Very interesting an rich history that I never learned in the 12 years I spent in the California public school system (aside from the 1849 Gold Rush, we were not taught much).
As far as I know, there haven't been any Walkers made. This is on my to-do list and I'll be making it from my 1/1......
LG2, do you have any suggestions on where I can get a good Colt Walker for my dragoon? Thanks in advance.
