Thanks Dave.

Slowly gluing together individual details into loads for the wagons.

Todays activities.



I also now know it takes 154 duck boards to fill a Class D WD wagon



Painting to follow.

Larry,

After all those loads, you're either shell shocked or board.

It does look top heavy but if I had not seen a picture of it I would have never tried it.

It looks like those rounds have fuses on them.

The shells were heavy and they tended to only load them over the bogies, lighter stores were placed in the center of the wagons.
