I think I would have tried decals. I'm sure all the ammunition, not just the top layer has stripes.

I thinks the hand painted stripes are excellent, and am not sure if decals would have been any easier. They can be very fiddly to apply.
Nice work.

George. I might have skipped putting stripes on a few in the middle.

Rob, Thank you. I agree Decals would be a much slower process as I would have to cut each one at least three times then soak for almost a minute. Use tweezes, then seal the decals. I will try a few on anything that is contest worthy but painting is much faster for me.

BigLars I seen one guy in one of the military modeling forums cut a hole in a piece of something the same diameter as the shell. After painting the shells all black he poured some 'red' paint into a container and pushed each shell through the hole just far enough that the shell dipped into the red paint. Then made a smaller hole and pushed the shell once again through the hole so the end of the shell dipped into black paint.
I have explained it very well have I?

Two holes. One the diameter of the shell. Next hole slightly smaller.

You could push the shell through the bigger hole and hand paint the red. Then when the red is dry push the shell into the smaller hole and paint it black.

Larry, You have probably already seen this newish YouTube video (just under 12 minutes) featuring an immaculately restored WWI Davenport Trench Locomotive.
At one point near the beginning it shows coupling two cars and then firing it up and running around a vineyard. But just in case you haven't:

Hi Bill, I had seen this video. I did not think to post it here so thanks for sharing with others. I will be visiting this locomotive as soon as I think flying to the west coast is a good idea.

Bruce thanks for the info.

Jerry, thanks for stopping in.

I have been making progress in on the RR and posting in the Challenge thread.

Here is a tease.

New inspiration arrived from thee UK. Picked up these books used but they are almost all brand new.




On first glance lots of information I was yet to acquire in the 7 other books I have on the subject.

Thanks Larry C.

I restarted a project from last year.

It is a very brittle 3d print I got as a second from the maker. Why not wreck it some more.

Excellent work on it!
