It had been my intention to make the Multisand sacks for the second Hudson bogie wagon at a later stage. But having the task on my list, I decided to finish it before I got too involved with other projects. During the weekend I finished 26 sacks, sealing paint and decals with a layer of matt varnish. Four of the sacks are now on their way to a friend's 1:32 scale railway on Langeland.
|Sacks primed. The sacks are mounted on two rocket sticks (from fireworks rockets) with double sided tape. Makes handling very easy.|
|Decaling in progress. Cut out decals at right over brush and tweezers. Plate with water in the center and decal softener to the left. Painted sacks left - some of them with decals.|
