Not a bit NickT, thank you. The more the merrier. The big picture as it stands today. Finished the hoses & jackhammers (crew is changing bits) and added some wood to the burn barrel. Working upper in jeep. Still waiting on decals.

Thank you gentlemen. Working engineers' footbridge components while awaiting decals.

Working jeep for upper & prepping bench for decal session.

As can be seen, some decals have now arrived. There are other eng. vehicles in this batch used elsewhere but w/no decals for serial #s.

Decal session complete. Need dulcote & weathering to blend them in. Only rec'd serial #s for up to 1ton trucks.

I also finished up one trailer load of footbridge components. It amounts to around 60 feet. I was going to do three trailers worth, but my process was too laborious, so have to rethink it. I believe bridging battalions carried about 500 feet of same. C&Cs welcomed. PaulE

I echo Jim's words. I cant put my finger on it but I am really enjoying watching this one come together. I hope you are having lots of fun as well. Take care my friend
