This is a long running and continuing journey around a collection of ideas, projects, games, models and a variety of wargaming related themes from my own imagination and from others. As I have been described as having the attention span of a forgetful goldfish you can rest assured the resulting subject matter will be diverse and (usually) entertaining!

lasted for long with him".

Funnel Bands? Got it Taped!....ACW Painting Part 16
Literally. Taped I mean. I am using masking tape to mark the edges for the painted funnel bands on the city class ironclads. Each of the ships had a unique colour for identification purposes and these were as follows:
Cairo - grey (not yellow as I originally thought)
Carondelet - red
Cincinatti - Blue
Mound City - Orange
Pittsburg - light brown
St. Louis - yellow
Louisville - green.
It was a little fiddly cutting out 3mm strips to go around the funnels but it will save me a lot of hassle later. An alternative would be to use sticky labels coloured and just stuck on where needed.
I am aiming to have these ready by the close of play Sunday so watch this space!
