Re: Introducing myself

Beautiful. I love working with card and paper myself having been "brought up" on Sankei kits.

These are splendid. A very nice diorama. Inspires me to shape up my efforts!

Re: Useful Ebay Stuff

Nice tips. Thanks. I found some trees that would seem to be based on wire armatures. (I've tended to use brass plated picture wire for the main trunks. Might save some time with prefabricated ones).

The problem I'm currently having is finding grass cover fine enough to be a lawn.

Re: T gauge rail supplier

Will be interested to see how people get on with this rail and if people manage to sort out decent points/switches. It'll be my last ditch attempt with this scale and not something I relish. I had hoped that commercial products would actually work so that I could concentrate on building up the scen...

Very nice 0402 prewired leds

Should anyone be interested I happened upon an ebay seller in the UK. doogierev search on '0402 prewired' Wired with 0.1mm enamelled copper, leads approx. 200mm tips tinned (about 1cm) cathode marked near the tip with black. They also come coiled individually so it's easy just to take just one from ...

Re: T gauge rail supplier

I've seen the rail sold online in 18 inch lengths to get round postal restrictions. Anyone who's received flexitrack from TGauge.com will have received it in a large pizza box (new...not used!). I know. I did ask TGauge.com if they'd make it a Hawaiian but they said they only did Pepperoni Flexitra...

Re: T gauge rail supplier

I could commit to about 10 metres. I've an amount of scrap left over from the layout which will anyway have to change so there'll be more scrap. And it is contingent on getting working points.

Thanks for letting me know.

Re: PegasusDesigns -My Shapeways shop.

Nice one, - as long as it's to scale!! A low relief building. I must admit disappointment with Shapeways buildings mostly because of scale. Some I bought I reckon are about 1/550, too small to integrate with items to the correct scale. Good luck with this and your shop, all the same. cheers, Ivor.

Re: Card/paper model crack/seam filling.

I bought some. Came in a nice metal case. I tried it on the cracked from of my optovisor lenses and it worked a treat. Also a tiny moulding in wax. It worked well so when the time comes I'll try it on a model. The only problem is the price for the amount. Still, it proves a point about UV curing glu...

Re: T gauge rail supplier

The only easy way is to take readymade track to pieces. I have an amount left after laying flexitrack which I'll be experimenting with. I discovered it can be soldered (if very clean) and will bond to plastruct with CA. As plastruct do 1mm² it'll be near enough the same size as flexitrack sleepers....

Re: UV glues

I'll give this a go as soon as I can find a UK supplier. The as seen on TV site seems to have dropped it. It's available from Amazon.com but at a price. The reviews are mixed among "verified purchasers" about its adhesive qualities though I hadn't anticipated using it as that, just crack filling. Bu...

Re: Card/paper model crack/seam filling.

Hi Noel, Right, I ordered one of these kits. I notice it claims to be able to insulate, which means I can stick down the leads of these tiny LEDs without worrying about glue solvent dissolving the enamel coating on the wires! It's one of two recommendations I'm going to try. I'll let you know how I ...

Re: UV glues

Well, I don't read every word of every modelling magazine, and (when they were around) I didn't look in every corner of a model shop, so I missed this. I'm surprised it doesn't feature far more among modellers. No doubt if I trawled through the internet I'd find references but that subtracts from ti...

Re: Card/paper model crack/seam filling.

Hank, Thanks for that. I'm searching under the descriptions and brands - will continue. The acrylic sealant/varnish we have in the UK, a coat diluted between 1 acrylic to 3 to 6 water is purely to seal the wood in preparation for finishing. This doesn't sound like the same thing, hence more research...

Thanks for all these tips! Right.

Card/paper model crack/seam filling.

Hello all, Well, try as I might to work with a level of precision there are times where tiny gaps can't be helped or it's too late to rebuild the thing. I know the first rule is don't have gaps but.... has anyone a formula for crack filling in this tiny scale to produce a durable result? If it can b...
