I have 6 more kits out of town with me, here are 3 of them.

Plus it there is no wind off the ocean today so I can do some spray painting.

I started with the bulk end flat car. The bogies build the same but have a strange way of connecting to the bolsters.

Not sure what to call the do dad that holds the bogie in the bolster.



It is secured in the bolster by bent wires which are a giant PITA to install.

Progress on the three additional kits.

It is a challenge to paint stuff in the condo but I am slowly able to do it.

Hi Larry, I think there a home made version of a press stud (used to clip shirt collars together I think) Your doing a good job on the waggons. If your a 7mm NG member there is a new kit for the Joffre class loco it will use the Bachmann 0-6-0t chassis not sure of price yet.

Thanks Neil, I am not a member of the 7mm NG at this point in time. I am starting to run out of kits due to my being locked up and not traveling for work for almost a year.

Larry,
Very interesting subject, WW1 railroad. Those are some very detailed trucks! I think I might be apt to misplace some parts.
Nice work so far! I read through your main thread, looks great!

Larry,

I would call that doohickey that connects to the bolster a 'kingpin'.


I have a book on WWI railways.


Great work!

Hi Scott and Michael,
Thanks for visiting.
Michael - I have all the books and should have know that answer. Thanks.
Scott - Thanks for also looking at the main thread and all the pages there.

I now currently have 7 wagons in some stage of construction since the start of the contest. Weather looks good enough that I might be able to paint tomorrow. I have also now working on how to load this next set of wagons.

Larry,

How about a nice load of mortar rounds? Excellent job on the tedious looking bogies.

Those kits aren't for the faint of heart. They're looking good, Larry.

Thanks Larry, Jim, Rick, Michael and George.

I am in a build groove now. Seven kits started, all in various stages of production.

Jim,
I will be detailing a wagon with a load of shells for 6" artillery. Not sure about mortar rounds.
Here is a test of a load of Duckboards and other supplies.
Lots of head scratching going on.
