Re: MUNSTER TROOPS 1672

I've got a uniform plate in my files of a Munster Grenadier 1679, will try and find and do a scan, uniform is white with green facings, i did a conversion from an old Minifigs S range Dutch Grenadier by altering the head gear, worked out well

Hi Charlie, i'm located in UK, have tried using your item number on Ebay USA but nothing came up, how have you listed them, from your description figures maybe ECW, need to see them so can decide if wanted
