A busy evening making ballast

Thanks to my mad neighbor I've got had to buy far too much lead lately.

But as a flyer that lead can be melted into ballast tubes!

I've cut 19mm crome tube into 50 and 60mm lengths and this evening started to fill them with lead.  A very handy size for Willows among other models.  The lead is a significant increase in weight over brass ballast.
