Hi Larry  :wave:



77 done ! ... WOW !!  :shocked:

They look GREAT !  :thumb:



What kind of paint do you like for doing the figures with ?  L:

I guess you're using some kind of magnifier as well ? 



:Salute: :Salute: :Salute: :Salute: :Salute:

Hi Si,

I now have completed over 150 soldiers for the layout.
Over 100 are not yet planted and are awaiting orders.
I have around 50 I have not yet started.
I also have 50 - 60 Horses and Mules to paint.

I use Vallejo paints and washes.
I use dollar store 2.75 readers to help me see.

Larry

Wonderful work!
Just how many figures do you think will be needed?
I can see many more in the future.
Please, more photos.

I get the 2.75 glasses also,
Wally World has 3 packs for not much more than just one.
I need 3 chances, I am always losing a pair...

Woodie

Thank you Woodie,

I will purchase as many figures as I can.
They are extremely hard to come by.
In the end I figure 300 figures, 50 - 60 horses and Mules,
40 carts / vehicles, 5000 - 7000 detail parts, 15 pieces of motive power,
50 pieces of rolling stock and 16 cannon to complete the layout.
At this point I have acquired around 70 percent of what I need.

The number of detail parts is astonishing.
I have already painted at least 2000 of them.
The details and figures are created and painted in assembly line fashion,
and many are sitting on a shelf ready to quickly add as scenery goes down.
Glad I know how to cast parts and have friends who cast them for me,
or 3D print them as a favor.

Next Friday will be my first public showing of the concept for my Display Railroad.

I will not take any modules, but will take a number of models, my Pizza layout,
and the start of the video pieces of the layout.

I will be running at least two screens off of a PC,
one with a 300 page slide show, one with the movie "They shall not grow old",
and possibly a third showing actual footage of WW1 trains running.

Here are two screens with display in a test mode.

" I use dollar store 2.75 readers to help me see "



Hi Larry  :Salute:



Lookin' good !  :thumb:


Yeah ... I checked out the '£ Store' readers a while back as well ...  :old dude:

... I ended up with x1.25 and x3.5 pairs to try out.  :cool:

Basically the weakest & strongest they had.



The x1.25s are quite good for reading & marking out sheet materials etc.  :shades:

The x3.5s are like having super-science-lab eyes !  :shocked:

Gonna try something in between as well, x2.5 or x2.75 I think they had.  L:



It's really all about the actual 'focal length' ...  ???

... & how comfortable one is, working at that essentially 'fixed' distance.

Woodie, Larry, how long roughly, is the 'focal length' of your x2.75s ?



I have some figures to do as well !!  :mex:



:moose:



Si.

Si,

The focal range is the table top when I am sitting looking down.

I was able to test the Simplex and the 6" cannon transporters on a friends loop of track last weekend.

Here is a link to the video.

Yes, they ran the trains barrel forward I have photo evidence.

Moving on to some equipment from other nations.

Items were captured and recaptured all the time.
They were used until spare parts were needed, then discarded.

This is a German Deutz locomotive.

A friend of mine "Les Davis" designed some parts for American cars.
He did the frame and a tank.

These are works in progress.
