DPM KITS poly....resin problems
Posted by hairball On 10/16/2019 At 8:31:11 PM
was reading somewhere that the DPM kits made of polyurethane/resin walls have a tendency for warpage.

Never having worked with it before was wondering what is best glue to use.

If there is warpage whats the method of straightening it out, heat plus weight ?

What about 3/16" wood or aluminum glued to the wall as a stiffener if a lot of warpage.

thanks for any insight

Loading dock height?

Is there a standard height for a rail loading dock? Looks to me like it's about 4' above rail height.

Hi all!

I'm building my layout again after the summer months.
The town of Holy cross on my HOn3 layout is slowly taking shape.
But, I realised that the station took up too much real estate.
I therefore decided to move it to the Isle side of the rails.


The space was a bit narrow though. So, I decided to cut the building in half lengthwise.


That makes it possible to see the interior of it and make it a bit of a show point.


The starting point was an Atlas station.
I cut it in half and used the remaining pieces to make the interior walls.
The cut was painted red to highlight it.
What do you think?
Another Stone in the Wall
Posted by mellow-mike On 09/01/2019 At 5:59:53 PM



Handmade stacked stone retaining wall in HO scale. This was a couple evening's tedious work, using tweezers and super glue gel. I had a sandwich baggie full of suitable pieces - but the time was spent fitting them together like a jigsaw puzzle. They should to be flat on the bottom and top, for the most part. Some were close enough.

I'm building a large (i.e. tall) scenic diorama, and the more I looked at the Chooch wall(s) I have, the less random they seemed. I want that Furlow and Olson look, as if the wall was built from the rock in the area. Not nice blocks brought in by rail. I think I'm quite pleased with the results.
mexican style roof tiles

Mexican style roof tiles. Not sure I have ever seen it discussed anywhere.

Am working in O scale, any ideas on how to construct those 1/2 round clay roof tiles.

thank you

I am just starting out in Z scale. I am interested in the CNE around 1899-1904. There is nothing out there in Z in this era of rail.
One thing that led me to the site was the early rail threads. I hope I can learn a lot here. I have joined and look forward to time spent here.

Getting back into model railroading after two decade hiatus. Starting a modest layout based loosely on the South Pacific Coast and Ocean Shore in California and am getting lots of inspiration by admiring the great work shown on this site.
