I was looking for outlets that might sell the Scotch-Brite wood polishing pads in Holland by mail order (or failing that, Dutch merchants that sell them by any method). In particular I was hoping to find a way to buy the pads more economically than the price as individual pads by instead buying via some sort of multi-pack.

Unexpectedly, or accidentally, I came across:

http://catalogue.3m.eu/nl-nl/nl-mro/Handmatig_schuren/Handpads_op_rol/Scotch-Brite%E2%84%A2~Pre-Cut_handpads_op_rol~CF-SR/Scotch-Brite%E2%84%A2~Pre-Cut_handpads_op_rol~A07904



Is there anyone with experience of these and are they materially the same as the single pad type ?

My activity is N-gauge trees.

There is a search engine Where to Buy on the 3M Holland website, but no way was I able to get the search engine to come up with a merchant that actually is in the 3M database as a retailer of that specific product.

The formal product title is

Scotch-Brite™ Pre-Cut handpads op rol CF-SR

I mention that in the picture, the designation of the item shown is MX-SR, not quite the same as CF-SR



I am in Danmark, not Holland, which in some cases makes it surprisingly complicated to buy things from Holland as Holland uses something called iDeal in internet commerce, whereas Danmark does not.

With the ( HO) captain and his wife(???)

thee trunk litllebit closer:

Overhere most of these beechtrunks are quite "clean"....when growing in the mountains were high humidity( like fog etc.) is more common the trunks should be more "weathered"with lychen/green stuff.....;-)

I'll look in my woods for a mature native beech. In New England the bark also stays clean; I haven't seen lichen on them even in the mountains where it covers the spruce & fir. But we have small knots & eyes in the trunk's bark from long-gone twigs. Oh, and yes, I admire your work.

I found an old kit for tree making which I must have purchased eons ago! Anyway it has all the wires in it etc. So I decided to try their instructions... This is for a large O scale tree. The wire and branches are OK?... but when I added the covering to the truck and branches (which is supposedly putty and water mixture..) it goes on great but breaks off where it is thick. So then I spray painted it but some bits still flaked off - to now I have mixed up some more of the mixture with glue/water/paint. Lets see how this turns out.... I have taken a photo but I have forgotten how to add a photo into the posting and I'm not at home up north I'm relaxing in Florida for the winter so I don't have all my notes with me. Can someone please refresh my memory how to add a photo to a posting? Thank you
Angela

Hello Angela,

Now you've made me curious about that treeframe....


and of course a picture of some fresh new N scale pines (european style...?)

and some HO stuff:trunks are still wett because of the terpintin...to remove the grassfibers or fine turf
