This conversion was idea of Ian Crouch "Crouchie", very easy and effective, Bac Ninh Shogunate body with Woodbine Design French Kepi heads.
And I have to say that I'm very satisfied with the result! I have little information about Gakuheitai, was a unit from Sendai domain known by receiving the English-style training using Snider-Enfield of breech-loading type, and dressed a red and black uniform.


  1. Very cool conversion, Jose. As you say, just a head swap, but with the red jacket, what a unique look. As obscure and small this war was, it sure produced some varied uniforms and troop types.
