    Nice work, Joe. How did you paint the wheels, and where did you find the ribbon?

    Wheel painting ... I did it twice ... it's a good thing alcohol was able to clean off the first, bad, paint job. I brush paint the red spokes and rim (roughly) with Vallejo paint. When that dried to the touch I painted the tire with black being more careful to be neat. I held the wheel with a small piece of metal rod inserted in to the mounting hole on the rear of the wheel. I'm pretty sure I read about this basic process here on the forum somewhere - I'm sure it wasn't an original idea.


    I tend to meander through home improvement stores and craft stores look for model train stuff. The ribbon came from either Michael's or AC Moore. I was on a hunt for screen door screen for an n-scale building ... that I never finished.id="Comic Sans MS">

            Well done, Joe! Building one's first Jordan Highway Miniature kit is a true right of passage in the model railroading hobby. I'll let you in on a little secret ... you are almost certainly in the top 10% having actually finished the kit rather than tossing the pitiful remnants of a first attempt into the trash can. Don't ask me how I know that ...

              Believe me I nearly gave up a few times. I pressed on figuring that the worst I could do is wind up with a rusted out car sitting in woods. It is certainly a confidence builder.

              My thanks to all!
