Larry, not sure if you've ever seen this or if it will help, but it's a colorized film shot during WW I.

Larry, your work on this project continues to amaze me!
It's really turning into a museum quality show piece.
Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the link, I had not seen that piece but have seen the trailers for the movie. My UK scouts say the movie is amazing. It has been shown only one night so far but might have an 11/11 release in the UK, Not sure of a US release.

I am happy others are enjoying this thread and thank all for the encouragement.

I was asked to write an article on my work for a November release in the UK. I have been working at an insane pace since Monday to finish over 1000 details to add to one module for a photoshoot Sunday to make the deadline.

As for everything on this build I could not move forward without much help. Ron "Elwood Blues" designed and printed 70 Duckboards and printed 360 shells designed by Heath. Ron is still printing and is coming over Sunday to help me take pictures.

Philip of Smith Models also sent me a care package of several hundred detail parts. Philip custom designed some Rum Jugs and cases for me. An added bonus was some of the details were already painted.

Here are some of the details in progress.

I will share more this weekend.

Beautiful details. It is amazing what 3D printing has done for the hobby. You have put it to good use.

Love this thread,

Here are two progress pictures. I painted more figures today but they are not ready for pictures. I also weathered some rolling stock. Not final weathering but effect weathering.
So far this week I have built or painted over 900 details to go on 4 feed of RR.

Time for some updates.

It is amazing what new technology can bring to the hobby.

Les Davis has been scanning figures and 3d printing them for us to use as part of some on-line FB tall tales. I have had great fun with that and can post pics someplace else if interested.

All the fun led me to a company in the UK called modelu3d
They recently scanned some ww1 re enactors to add to the long list of figures they have scanned and now 3d print. You need to check them out.

Here are some of the first figures off the line. They need a little touch up paint but I am very pleased with them.

Additionally Philip Smith custom created the Rum jugs for me.

I call this Waiting for the morning rum ration.

I'm enjoying your work.

For what it's worth here in Australia the History channel is about to show new programming to acknowledge the end of WW1. "100 Days to Victory". Much of it colourized. Maybe it will also be shown in the USA/Canada. My understanding is that the series will show the role the various commanders played in the ending of the conflict.

You're doing such a fine job it's going to be a shame to blow them all up shortly.
