Was that actually you first shot at pinstriping? Looks most excellent to me!!!!
What kinda pencil did you use for your layout markings?
Thanks a lot King! It is my first shot, but while waiting for the supplies to show up, I watched a lot of videos and practiced with markers.

I am doing my layouts with a Staedtler lumicolor grease pencil (water soluble).

Re: NDN - Ambivalent

Love what you did with the Buffalo Nickles! I've been thinking about doing that with some Silver Quarters. Might have to re-think that and find some nickles, I've got a Hiawatha build to do too! :mrgreen: I won't be copying your leather grips though, probably something more along the lines of a Leather/Wood combination. Thanks for the inspiration. 8)

Re: NDN - Ambivalent

Sitting here at work bored so decided to practice designs for the saddle bag sides.



Threw some paint on the wheels last night. I need to dirty 'em up once they dry.



Might make a racing number plate out of this with red backing to show throough the holes.

Once the ivory paint dries a bit i am going to rub some off so it looks a little more aged. Pretty happy with theturn out but i do need a lot of practice.
