After drying I gave the drums a wash of heavily diluted burnt umber oil paint. I mounted them on some wood profiles. In that way they are easy to place at different locations and vehicles.
|Five of the drums fitted to a few boards (so as not to scratch the lorry's load bed).|
|Ready to depart to the bakelite factory with a full load of chemicals.|
I drilled holes in the top of the pole and mounted three nice Part insulators. After painting and a little weathering I consider the pole ready to mount next to the bakelite factory building (must finish the construction of the building first, though).
|Pole fitted with turned brass insulators and weathered.|
|A close up of the insulators. Now I just need an insulator enthusiast to tell me I have used a type of insulator not used in Denmark!|
