Amazing work. What patience to detail so many figures at that level.

Larry, great work on the figs. If I could offer a suggestion, Games Workshop has a product for shading acrylics called Agrqax Earthshade - it's in their "Shade" range (oddly enough). They have a number of colours but this one is a brown and would fill the recesses, leaving raised portions as highlights - all in one fell swoop. MIG probably also has a similar one, Vallejo, may but I don't think so. It would add a level of realism with minimal effort.
Keep up the fantastic work! Cheers,
Dave

Thanks to all who stopped in for a look and for the kind words.
I am traveling on business but did bring 120 detail parts to paint.
Dave - I placed an order for the shading paint you suggested. I will give it a try soon.
Still lots to do in this project. I plan on a first showing of part of the layout this fall. A larger section next July.
Deadlines are good for me. Keeps me honest.

I submitted a request to include my layout in the 2021 Hickory NNGC last week.

Two years to finish, the clock is ticking now.

I took more figures on the road with me this last week and was able to finish 31. I know it is getting boring seeing all these figures but I need to make sure I do something as I travel. I need to finish something every two weeks now.

My grandfather and his brother were both in the Canadian Railway cop. My grandfather was wounded in the lower abdomen by a shell splinter...his brother carried him back to an aid station were he was pronounced dead. His brother insisted they keep working on him, he was revived and patched-up enough to be sent back to a real hospital. He ended up with intestinal gangrene but somehow managed to survive( no antibiotics in those days) and was invalidated out and sent back to Canada. I still remember the time I first saw the golf-ball sized divot in his abdomen and he told me just that he had been wounded. A few years later he gave me the piece of shrapnel( or so he claimed it to be)....but he never went into details about his wounding. A second cousin researched it about ten years ago and told me then.

Cheers
Gene

Thanks all.

Gene,
Thanks for the story. I am posting a picture for you. If you have a picture of your Grandfather and his brother I can try to get figures that look similar. Please share any other information you might have.
