As terrific as the building is I enjoyed the 'bench' just as much!

I have the luxury of having two parts of my railroad fix, in the winter it's ON30 and in the summer it's live steam. The transition from either is always met with a good influx of 'GO' juice!

Welcome back, we missed ya!. Russ

Thank you all for the encouragements and greetings

Tonight I had a quick stint by the tiny workbench... I stripped som balsa sheet pieces unevenly and roughly, then applied the strips to the substructure with plain carpenters glue. I'll trim when dry.

Man is it wonderful to be back in the shed!!! There is very little time left in my workday schedule these days, but I will endeavour to get out there a couple of days a week.

Nice to see you back in action Troels.
Question - You say you are using balsa. How do you deal with the 'fuzz'/'fur' on balsa?

regards

Bruce, the fuzz on the softer grades of balsa is not a problem. since I never use any stains. When painted, the fuzz is effectively glued down by the acrylic. To get the weathered, raw wood look, I paint it to simulate that, rather than using translucent stains. But whenever possible, I use the hard grade balsa, which is a little more difficult to strip, but is much stronger, and fuzz free :)

Thanks Troels. Look like I may have to have another look at balsa.

Keep up the good work.

Slowly, slowly

Shingling/shaking is a slow, but therapeutic occupation...

I comfort myself that I have done more modeling in three evenings than in the last couple of years
