Painting masks 1

To avoid getting paint between the blade and stock rail of turnouts when spray painting track (thus causing bad electric contact) and also jamming up the tiebar and operation, it is usual to mask this area off and hand paint it afterwards. Since I have over 20 turnouts and slips applying tape would be a big chore, so I made some plastic covers.
The two on the left are the same and for turnouts, the right hand unit does one end of a double or single slip.
