That's a better view & it looks great. I wouldn't sweat the load too much about a little bit of shiny. There were lots of inconsistencies in paint at the time, especially anything applied in the field & maintenance touch up would be blotchy. Nice work.
Yeah, true that. I've read about field mods in the past. It's not easy to replicate that convincingly in scale though. Thanks again
Peatbog - Thanks a lot for the compliments. I don't have an operational layout and not planning on making one. I just dig modern freight replicas in HO. My favorite subjects are modern reefers and autoracks
I don't know if it's appropriate here to post other forum thread links in the UGV, but I have a couple builds here:
Funny you posted this. I actually have the Dragon kit, 1/6 German Bicycle w/Panzerfaust 60 but haven't started it yet. The spokes are way too thick and unrealistic but I've seen builds of it where they replaced each spoke, one-by-one, with wire to make it look better.

kingsnova: Hello all, I just bought a used 26" Mongoose Beast fat tire at a garage sale $140.00. Good deal till the rear bearings were loose and broke the axle. Anyone know how I can get parts to fix it?
