Dated: November 24, 2007.
I've been working with (maybe playing with is a better term) 1/32 (54 mm) soldiers on and off since 1948. In recent years, Hat 1/32 castings have added the pleasure and challenge of painting and conversion to collecting. Here are the Hat ingredients of my collection. Photographs by my son, Dr. John L. Worden IV.

Set No. 9009 has provided several worthy additions to my Napoleonic collection. Here they are, painted as the 22nd Dragoons (the eagle bearer and bugler are conversions) as part of a large cavalry force - otherwise mostly CBG Mignot - charging the Austrian infantry.
Removal of the turned back lapels and helmet alterations provided these Austrian Dragoons. Again the bugler is a conversion. Again these are from set 9009.
Two other conversions of the dragoon officer from set 9009- one to an officer of the Austrian fusiliers, and the other to an officer of the Hungarian grenadiers.
Many thanks to Mr. John L. Worden III and IV.
