Rusty Stumps Cedar Shingles
Posted by Railrunner130 On 07/23/2017 At 09:01:17 AM
About a year ago I purchased some Rusty Stumps Cedar Shingles. I've used them a little bit and really like them. However, I'm looking for some advice on how to use them better.

1. The self-stick backing doesn't fully dry, forcing shingles to move when pressure is put on them. Yesterday I tried a layer of wood glue to prevent this. Does anyone have a better idea?

2. I've applied a few coats of Weather It! to the shingles, but that only dirties them. (And releases a really nice, cedar smell) Does anyone have any ideas on how to age them?
Interaction Enterprises CPR #2 toolhouse
Posted by Glen Haasdyk On 07/19/2017 At 10:56:15 PM
Working on a small toolhouse that I got from Interaction Enterprises about a year ago.

A few years ago I built their large CPR #3 toolhouse, added an interior and lit it.


This one has no windows and only the double doors. I should be able to knock it off in a couple evenings work.

Even though it is a small kit I'm pretty impressed with the detail that was added to the structure, individual rafters and interior framing.

I started with staining all the walls in a pine stain from Testors model FX.

then I painted the exterior walls and trim with Ceramcoat Barn Red. This is my standard railroad structure color.
The trim is made of a thin resin board (also laser cut)

and the interior framing. This too is a resin board. I didn't paint the interior framing so I can see the contrast.
Rapido Switch Stands
Posted by halrey On 07/19/2017 At 4:44:40 PM
I though it would be a interesting project to light one up...
Well, I will say it's not for the soldering challenged, damn nano LEDs are crazy small, .02"x.039".
Rapido made the switch stand kits, which I guess were offered with a switch motor but they also sell them with no motor, they were never intended to be lit. It wouldn't take much to make them operate.

South River Model Works Kits
Posted by Dave S On 07/17/2017 At 8:26:43 PM
I am looking for links to South River Model Works Kits, especially the dioramas built by a modeler who went by the name "Gregg W", I believe. He was a very accomplished and active modeler who built South River Model Works kits and combined them in unusual ways into dioramas. Seems like he stopped posting his builds and dioramas about 4-5 years ago. I recall that he was developing a railroad that featured a small hillside port town with a lighthouse in a harbor. Hope someone remembers him and can help me find some links to his work.

Thanks, Dave S Tucson, AZ

Help!

This may be the wrong place to post this but wanted to get the biggest exposure. I apologize for this!
Since I have been a member here I have used Photobucket for storing and sharing my photos. As of June 1st Photobucket has decided to charge an exorbitant amount of money for users to continue using their service.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Can anyone suggest another web hosting site I can transfer my photos to.
I have two clinics in the Classroom, that I will have to repair the photo links to. I'm afraid my other posts will have to suffer.
Thanks

O Scale Buoy
Posted by halrey On 07/06/2017 At 9:15:50 PM
Hi All,

I needed a few O scale buoys for my On30 project (which is moving very slowly by the way) so this is the result. I also cut an HO scale one just to see if it would work, I am still waiting on some fiber optic filament for the HO version, the O scale one has a 3mm slow flashing LED, which looks good.

Oh, and I need more seagull poop on the built up one...

Hal

I bought my first HO model train set when I was 12 years old, had it on lay-away at G&G Model Shop in the Village, Houston, Texas. I have loved trains all my life. My Grandfather worked the old Yazoo & Mississippi Valley RR (with John Luther Jones), I.C., Gulf Division, L&N and retired off the MoPac. He and his half brother owned the Louisiana Southern RR, which ran through the truck farms in Barataria. He had box cars loaded under guard (holding Thompson Sub-machine guns.) My mother went once and it never occurred to her, veggies need no guard, but Hooch does.

Thank you for a great place to enjoy train lore. I have always wanted a wooden boxcar of my own but settled for trips from Chama Co and Durango Co. I live in Trinidad Co and would love to find a door or two off of an old car. To setup in my backyard as a backdrop for pictures. I do this strictly as a hobby as I am retired and gave time to make things happenAny help in locating a door would be greatly appreciated. Thank s

I tried to post this after registering yesterday, trying again to be sure as I believe the topic is important...

If someone is still looking for a link to some of Tom Beaton's work:
http://www.modvid.com.au/html/body_tom_beaton.html

I talked to him last weekend at a show in Chilliwack, BC. He has a folio with his published articles (technical details and drawings) and lots of pics of his work (mostly in other people's hands). I asked if he would like to have it scanned and placed on the net by volunteers. Am not sure if he got the intention but refused, stressing his dislike for computers.

This would be w worthwhile project for the modelling community. If you need me, contact form is on my blog:

right-hand menu just above the internal search button.

I'm looking for a company that can fabricate very small furniture. Specifically, I'm looking for tiny rocking chairs and benches for a model building I'm working on. Can anyone suggest a company? Chairs need to be about 3/4 in tall and 1/4 in wide. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
