Re: WW1 French Colonial Algerians?

Quote: Ironsides
The Chauchat Gunner is entirely appropriate for a French Infantryman as is the pose for firing in the attack/advance there is nothing to distinquish except the Serbian crest on the Adrian helmet, which is not there in any case...


That's why I am much in favor of an all 1914/15 Serbian set.

If you need a Frenchman (or 1917/18 Serb) with a Chauchat, you might choose three of the four late war French sets on the market - the Pegasus and the Strelets sets have advancing poses while Revell has a kneeling one, it is only the Airfix set that comes without.
