Hi all,

I'm currently making a model of HMS Victory 1765 by Airfix, scale 1/170. I figured 6mm figures by Baccus would be great as crew. I would need sailors, officers, mariners, and of course a regiment or two of line infantry, kind of like the Hornblower movies. Any suggestions what codes could be useful?

Infantry/Marines you can take from the AWI/7YW ranges.

Crew. I don't know  possibly AWI jäger with the rifles clipped off  ? 

Maybe some French/Indian wars French woodsmen. Again all armed with guns.

Maybe some of the engineers in the Napoleonic ranges would serve for sailors and officers.  Perhaps the Napoleonic Spanish gueriallas might be of use too.

Thanks for your advise guys! I guess I'll do some surgery on the little fellows as I come closer to actually finishing the ship. Your suggestions look very plausable.
