Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

For future reference, PVA takes forever to harden between polystyrene as it is obscured from the air that it needs to set. Use Gorilla glue, spray with a light coat of water (it's catalyst that hardens it) and it will set within 30 minutes. [weight stuff down, as it foams and expands as it sets!]

Re: Lumsdonia

Hi TimberSurf, Cooo that bottom right rock mould would make a fantastic 'drop in' pond. I could sure use one of those !! Geoff T. Its a thought Geoff! I could cast clear resin in it, then gouge out a hole and drop it in flush with surface might work! Innovation and imagination seem to know no bound...

Seen it all now! I track these on Ebay. They were down to £300 new at one point, now no longer made, second hand regularly go for £600-800, thought they may get to £1,000, but this takes the biscuit at €2,000! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ZL009-HELJAN-89001-train-Ho-Terminal-a-conteneurs-Containerterm...

Re: More eBay nonsense...........
