Moar buildering afoot.

Using my glue it to the print out method is pretty good so far.
It is revealing that one panel may be a bit crooked on the bottom.

Was on another forum and a guy was using Gorilla glue for water.





Note to self: I am going to have to try this.

Another thing that works for water is MODGE-PODGE from the craft stores.
It takes a bit to harden & cure but makes some nice water for sure.
An expensive (not very) alternative is 20 minute "finish epoxy" for model aircraft.
This stuff is safe for foam, etc. and hardens like...epoxy.

Well, nothing real to report except I solved my figure problem.

I realized that everything at Shapeways exists as a 3D model that is then used to make a 3D printed object.

SO if I contact figure makers on Shapeways, one of them may be willing to scale the model to 1/55 for me, and I can buy some real figures.

This set looks pretty good to me as a starter:   Figure Set

I broke down and bought a detail part for my "Red Devil" loco.





Just need to wait till the weather gets warmer to do any outdoor spray painting.

And I am also thinking of using an old Tyco diesel horn on the cab.

Hi T.G.B.  :wave:



Oh yes ! ... Outdoor spray-painting & cold-weather doesn't go great together.  :td:



One dodge I have found to be almost acceptable ...

... is to have a warm-can of paint  (good anyway, for finer droplets)  & hit it QUICK ...  :shocked:

... & then move indoors to dry.



Some kind of, even improvised, spray-booth is a good move of course.  L:

I really need to find myself a BIG cardboard-box & get BODGING on that one here.



DETAIL PARTS ! ... HOLY EXPENSE ! $$$ ... Don't skimp on the GOLD PAINT !  :pimp:



:mex:



Si.
