Mark’s been in touch.
He’s shared a very simple but effective ‘how to’:
Looking around for a quick, fun, (and cheap) project this afternoon and I came across an old Varney gondola in the scrap box.
Added some metal wheels and Kaydee whisker couplers.
Cut out a load base from some scrap bass wood, piled some stuff on it from the scrap box along with some rust and dirt powder.
Then sprayed some alcohol on it to break surface tension and then drizzled some scenic cement on with an eye dropper.
Let it set in the Las Vegas sun for a bit to dry, dropped the load in and it was on it’s way!
Took about two hours and just a few bucks of parts.
Great way to enjoy an afternoon!
Thanks for looking!
A brilliant ‘how to’ from Mark. I loved it – hope you did too.
That’s all for today folks.
Keep ’em coming.
