Love your consist, JOSEF.  I am putting together a military freight train, passenger train, and one that celebrates the victors of WWII.  It should be together for the 75th anniversary of D Day in about a year and a half.

Besides some of the Menard loads, which I also customized, tanker cut down to a more realistic size, as well as a Lionel trailer cut down, painted and decaled. The tanks, fuel truck, jeep , bulldozer, helicopter, staff car, rocket are 1/48 kits, some customized. All chained and blocked. The Lee and Stuart tanks are on drop end gondolas because of flat cars shortage did fit and were used for these, as well as motorcycles, and other small vehicles.

Be looking forward to your consist.

Being an Air Force vet,  I could not find what I wanted so I made my own.  Have several military trains.  This shows a scale Minuteman III  missile.  Missile was turned from maple from actual diminsions and decals were custom made.   This will probably end up in my display case due to size (15") The real Minuteman was transported in a 60+ foot container.  This was modeled in display colors as the actual combat colors were much different.
