      Hauk, I was just looking at your web page and you mention a process I've never heard before, can you elaborate on the below statement:

      When glueing woodparts its important to pre-glue the joints with dilluted white glue.


      What do you do here exactly, I'd never heard this anywhere before.

      I'd also like to know a little more about your process of stainiing the wood..Its really a wonderful dark weathered color.

      Thanks for your time

        "Now for something completely different". The model sure is different....well done mate.

        What did you use for the rolled cables.

        I love using cable, chains and ropes on certain models.

          I use white glue for all wood-to-wood joints. Before gluing the parts together with full-strength glue I treat the joints with a quite thin mix of water and white glue. I apply this mixture with a small paintbrush. Without joining the parts, I let this dry thouroughly. This way you get a much stronger joint.

          The wood is stained with a thin water/indian ink solution. The ink is straight black. The trick is to get the strength of this stain exactly right! You will probalby need far less ink than you think. Test it on a scrap piece of wood.

          For the decks on the platform and wagon floor I used A-west weather-it. A nice contrast to the black color of the tower and sides.

            The rolled cables are a rather springy nickel-silver wire treated with A-west-blacken it. I dont really remember what I used, It could also have been thin guitar strings.

            But it is good to use something springy, it rolls up nicely into round coils.

              I thought so..... I got a box of guitar strings my mate at a music shop was throwing out sometime back.

              The Bass "E" "A" makea good cable.... the bottom "E" is good for structures.

              Hauk...Bit like the "Sound of music" on your "Painted Wagon" [:-cowboy]..well done again for "something different"

              Hey Karl O..... have ya still got your string instrument in the loft......
