“Hi Al, Pete from Fl here. First i would like to thank you for all the videos and pictures.All i can say is WOW.
I’m new to the hobby. Started my first layout in January, n scale 2′ x 5′, good size for a beginner as myself. One of the questions i had was keeping dust to a minimum.
I goggled this question with little satisfying results. So my idea was to make a cover. I sure this idea isn’t new,but i have not seen it anywhere.
The cover is made of cardboard, 1/4″ styrofoam sheets from dollar tree. Added some ideas
to top and front. Soon realized this could be a project in itself. No scale used, just come measuring, cutting and hot glue.It works well,lightweight,stays in place, easy to remove and put back on.
Pictures below of cover and few pictures of layout and lights. Added building and towers with lights last month, parking lot lights this week.I like it. I think i’m on the right track.
Still a lot to do.Changing tunnels some, reason for no portals at this time and a lot of other things to do.That’s about all for now. Have fun.
THANKS TO ALL…………..
A huge thanks to Pete. It’s funny how after years of doing this, I still think the simple ideas are the best ones.
Now on to John. He’s made another model from the print out scenery range.
And here’s some pics of the foot bridge. I dropped it before I took the pic, so the roof got bashed a bit. Sorry:
If you want to have a go at building the bridge, you can get it here.
Please do send me the pics of your handy work – I love to see them.
That’ all this time.
Don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to get off the armchair and on to the starting blocks.
PS (Latest ebay cheat sheet is here.) Still going strong!
