expanding foam

forget the expanding foam idea ! :( You get the same effect as just using the wire mesh and plaster bandage except it cost about another £32 per 4 foot of hill !! Worthwhile experiment but can't see any great benefit at the end of the day. Will post some more pics later when I have sorted the light...

To be fair the rock faces that are painted are made from chicken wire, covered with plaster cloth then brushed with fine filler. All in all took 2 days to complete. Painted with a wash of Woodland Scenics yellow ochre, oversprayed with halfords zinc primer and then drybrushed with some creamywhite e...

What comment was that then Andrew? Missed that completely!
Decided to change because a) Matthew is more interrested in PS2 games now and b) It could be construed as being g*y??? rather than father and son! :lol:

looks a great idea/challenge!! I did have this whacky idea of doing the same but as a dining room table in N, this would be a great talking point over dinner!!

whilst some may hate the US stuff I can't believe the 'strength' of this little loco. It has pulled those 21 hi cubes (approx 850 feet in real terms!) with no bother from walking pace to flat out!! Last night I hitched up my entire stock of wagons totalling 32 and had no probs at all. The difference...
