FOS Rust Rock Falls Kit Build
Posted by Kurt Bainum On 10/29/2019 At 8:54:31 PM
Jump right in.































India ink wash was not dark enough to show through the small cracks in the paint so I used wood stain then hairspray before the acrylic white topcoat was airbrushed on. Lots of washing with a small brush and water to soften the hairspray to get the paint to crack and peel. Rust and moss stains are being added with artists' oil paint and then washed with thinner.

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.

Split station house.
Posted by Graffen On 09/18/2019 At 12:54:48 PM
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.

There is some really impressive modeling on this site, and it seems like a really nice community as well.

Can someone help me locate that RR chat room back in Oct=Nov 2000. It was free at the time but was in process of going to a paid subscription. the user name he used was

I'm hoping someone here remembers a train/rr chat site back in Oct-2000, looking for a member using "mongoose" as a username. At that time, he was with the FRA and living in Columbus, Ohio. Heard he moved to either PA or Md but still with FRA.
The site was changing to a "paid subscription" and that's when I decided to end it.
