You sugest varnishing the board and then you mention Defflon foam.What is this for?and do I cover the whole board with it and then do i need to loose ballast on top of this?
Regards and thanks
Steve

backscenes

Hi all, Am looking for some good back scenes to run along sides of my baseboard. I have seen the Peco ones in my local shop but am not over impressed. I did use them years ago and to me it seems they have never been updated over the years and they are the same old selection. I wonder if anyone knows...
