“I’ve been getting your emails for a couple of months now. They are always interesting to read. I have a tip fr all your readers.
My wife has used this material for years to stick things together, it can be separated easily and there is no mess before or after. She call it museum glue The container has this label: “MINI HOLD” by What’s Next?, Inc. in Carbondale, PA18407. This material (Says the label) A wax adhesive for Miniatures,Model Railroaders &Photographers. Apply a small amount to hold items in place. Will not stain finishes or dry out. Residue can be removed with soap and warm water. (When I get it on my fingers I just rub my fingers together to form a small ball, and place it back into the container.
My train table is 4×8 feet with 3 Marklin HO Scale trains run with 3 transformers.
I’m in New Jersey USA (not the Isle of Jersey).
If you missed Ken’s brilliant video of his layout last time, it’s here.
This time, he’s done a night scene. Brilliant.
“Well we be moving forward on upper level … Overhead wires almost done, i get the wire from my Mig welder .30 mig wire then solder …. One of the things Im trying to do is get all block lights working with everything else, smooth…Track is 75% done with little problems here and there…
Lighting up this little layout has been a lot of fun … Model railroading covers so so so much. Its not funny, I really dont know any other hobby like it … Machanic, engineer, historian, Electronics,model builder, every aspect to life really shouldent be called model railroad. It should be called model life …… Always recycle I have two buildings on my layout that are made from car parts .. One, is two tail light lenses from a 68 ford mustang studd upright then a piece of glass and some sandpaper for roof… Another was a 40 ford grill shell put upside down and well la… Most of my layout is made from scrapes of wood , wire, models, life … Dont throw anything away…
The first vid is daytime looking at details… Second is night time working on light distortion … Hey what is light distortion? Its when light reflects somewhere you dont want it… Like the wall …
Please do keep ’em coming, folks.
