General George G. Meade 1/32 figure

After a break from sculpting I decided to do a figure that's been on my "to do" list for some time. Shenandoah miniatures has a set of heads wearing Federal Dress Hats and one of the heads appears to be based on this photograph of Meade. I've always wanted to do a figure of Meade and after seeing this head my mind was made up. The metal bootee/boot blanks are from Latorre and are perfect for Civil War footware. I will also be using a Shenandoah photo-etched belt buckle, with the remainder of the figure being scratchbuilt. To see the step-by-step being done on this figure, click on the following Planet figure link.
