What I can’t remember at all was painting it! It’s odd because for it to still be in my parent’s house it must have been painted before I left home at the age of nineteen. With it was a made up Airfix kit of a Waterloo Coldstream guardsman that I do remember painting (and darn fiddly it was) but done without shading.
This is weird because the shading technique used on the Caledonian is much closer to stuff I painted later on and what dim recollection I do have of trying to paint that figure was that I made a right pigs ear of it.
Anyway, there you have it – the only 54mm Hinton Hunt figure in my collection!
