The first of the sets which got me interested in Napoleonics

This was an awesome set and I got it when I was about eight or nine I think. Being a kid, the original box didn't survive my messy room and being continuously being opened and closed.  My sister brought back three boxes of Airfix when she returned from her Dunedin Youth Orchestra trip to Hobart and I can still remember the thrill of getting such a bounty from the strange land of Australia. These figures formed the mainstay of my battles for the next five or six years and decades later I actually repainted them (pictures on previous post somewhere). Just seen these figures sends me back to my childhood!  I will post the remaining three boxes over the next few days.
