These Timpo / Toyway soft plastic figures may be painted as Union or Confederate infantry. All figures are wearing the popular sack coat. Equipment consists of a cartridge pouch, cap pouch, haversack, and canteen.
The infantry muskets are not detailed enough to identify them as a Enfield M.1853 or Springfield Percussion Rifle-Musket. Bent muskets and bayonets may be straightened in hot water, and fixed in their proper position with ice-cold water.
The soldier pictured at right carries the catridge and cap pouches of a musket-armed infantryman, but he seems to have lost or dropped his rifle to fight on with his revolver. The figure may be converted to a standard-bearer by drilling the right hand open and inserting a flagstaff into it. The conversion to an officer figure is significantly more difficult, requiring the removal of the cartridge pouch and pouch belt, to be replaced by a revolver holster attached to the waistbelt. The officer figure would also need shoulder tabs made of paper.
