I cut a piece of old T-shirt.

Spray painted it with Rustoleum "Almond" paint,

which stiffened and stuck the cloth to the styrene backer.

Wes,

I did something similar using an old T-shirt soaked in glue, then cut and folded.

Yes, that works.

I liked the paint it on method,
because it covered up the various stains from the rag of a T-shirt,
as well as provided stiffening and adhesion...

All in one process.

Hi Wes  :wave:


Gee GUTTED !  :shocked:

I have one of those 'Bachmann' Handcar & Trailer sets ...  :old dude:

... just no 45mm gauge track at present to use it on. 


Worth a small FORTUNE $$$ over here in the U.K. on eBay though !  :cool:





Your outdoors scenery is already looking ACE !  :thumb:





This photo, with the strong shadow, looks like the real deal !  :cool:

Some great pictures to be had by the looks of it.  :)


Are you putting the 2 dudes :mex: :mex: back on the handcar ?  ???

It's not just scenery, right ?


:java::moose:


Si.
