Here are a couple of good videos demonstrating the application of shaper sheet with a hot glue gun and plastering over it for an excellent modeling surface.
In the first one, I use a hot glue gun to attach shaper sheet to my corrugated paper board framework. It is a very quick and easy way to do this. I also start thinking about how I am going to build a siding and run around for the locomotive.
In the second I demonstrate mixing and applying Shaper Sheet plaster. I also look at the completed work, at the time of shooting, around the layout with my new camera gimbal.
Farland is now about half done at least for the big details. I expect to be making small modifications and adding smaller details for several years after the big picture is created. Building Farland has been the most fun I have ever had in my life. Well, I suppose when I was younger I had some very good times too, but I cannot imagine any better way to spend my retired time than doing what I am doing.
Thank you for all you do for the modeling community,
Rob, Farland Howe”
Shaper Sheet and Track Planning for Far Moor
Please do have a look at the ebay cheat sheet – it’s totally new. Some of you said it wouldn’t load, so I’ve redone it. Please let me know if you have any problems at all with it.
Kennith’s American West layout reminded me of something I saw at a recent model railroading show in the St. Louis, MO area.
You’d appreciate if you’ve seen Back to the Future movies.
A huge thanks to Rob. And I’m in complete agreement with him too – there’s not a better way to spend your retirement than pottering away on your layout.
That’s all today folks.
