Default American Flag Engine

Recent disrespect for Old Glory, the National Anthem, our Veterans, Police, and whatever else certain anti-anything American groups feel they need to protest inspired me to paint one of my engines with a resemblance of the American Flag.

Keep the politics out of it. Tell us about how you went to the Veterans Hospital, Boys & Girls Club, etc., and taught the vets and underprivileged kids how to machine or run said engine. That'd be more meaningful than plastering the US flag on an oily engine.

I agree, lets not turn this refuge into a political site.

had no intentions to offend you....the oily is recommended for lubrication and further authenticates the miniatures with the full size ones that sling it!

Politic aside, how did you paint the stars. A bush wit 6 hairs?

Thanks to all that appreciate the Old Glory engine. Have a Happy New Year! Later, RT.
To paint the stars on engine side-plates and spokes i used a 75 watt laser to cut little stars in a piece of cardboard, then after the blue paint dried i used the template to spray the stars. The same laser cut the clear acrylic to cut the engine base parts. I use Autocad 99.9% of the time to make sketches and Inventor if i need to make a 3-D part.
