    It has been quite a while since I posted to RRL. I am adding an extension to the right side of my O scale 'Widget Supply' .. scratchbuilt using foam board, cardstock, paper, beads, aluminum foil, styrene, strip wood and Tichy parts.

    Hi All-

    Thought I would share a couple pictures of my HOn3 scratchbuilt water tank, pump house and sand bunker. Feel free to share any thoughts/ideas/suggestions.

    Thank you Anna! I included the actual build thread for those projects now.

    See my previous post.

    Interesting product that "Magic Coating". Thanks for sharing.

    Carl,

    Your builds are awesome! Great photos too, at first I thought the lighthouse was a full-scale building...


    George, JGDurand, Pete, Jerry, David, Bill,

    Thanks, I appreciate your comments! The scale is 1:48, I like to use large photos to show detail.

    I located some leftover packages and took pics. Seems that I misremembered - some of the packages weren't cut out until I'd completed the Dimensional Magic coating (much less fiddly!).



    The white on the packages is not part of the print, it's lamplight reflecting off the raised parts (these are little rotary cutters). I started out with a flat printed surface, gave it a thin coat of Dimensional Magic all over so it would look like plastic, then applied more where I wanted raised areas. I probably repeated the last step once more, it flattens a little when it dries but less than you'd think. Maybe artists' gloss gel medium works similar to this product.




    These packages have been evenly coated all over, no raised areas. A pile of them looks very different from a pile of flat cut-outs.

    Anna-Carin,

    Please show a detail of a finished product made with Plaid's Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. I'm unsure of what you are saying.

    Thanks
