Re: The return of Linka?

The exact proportions of water:plaster are hopefully available from the seller of the plaster and are ideally listed on the packaging. on the site and demo videos it says use a mix of 40/100 which is too dry.

Re: The return of Linka?

Thanks for your reply alex. Yes i've heard both yay's and nay's about misting the moulds first. As for sticking them together, I have been using neat pva both on the "teeth" and once laid face down to glue, I push them together and add a line of neat pva down the join. It seems to hold nic...

Just my luck he introduced a more stronger powder literally a week after I purchased the original :roll: But I wanted to ask members here what mix you use, as on the site and demo videos it says use a mix of 40/100 which is too dry. I've tried 45g water ...

Try the shaft of your soldering iron, NOT the tip.

Re: oo / n controller

As a quick answer I would say yes, as the EZ Command outputs only 1amp as far as I remember.
A more elaborate explaination as to why will no doubt be offered by a more experienced member about ACTUAL power outputs etc.
Somthing which I am still not quite sure about myself.
Thanks

Re: Stations... High or Low..

Why not have both? As an example, although London Bridge station is raised on a viaduct is it ALSO set on a higher level for half of the platforms. The terminus station is directly sat on the viaduct (in the left of the picture), whereas the platforms going further North are even higher by a good 4-...
