The Schleich figures can usually be reposed too with the help of some boiling water...

This probably isn't it, seeing as you said small, but I do recal Larry and Steve selling it:

Although I have never used it, everyone I know that does uses a mix of PVA, water and a drop of washing up liquid - basically as though they were ballasting track.

Have you considered a "rooster bar" - or a short bar with a coupling on each end? That should allow them to couple up.

That brickwork (sans flash ;) ) is possibly some of the finest I've seen in G scale.

I take it it's 'One Strike Filler', carved like the paving slabs?

Good job :D

I haven't received anything since you left it Michael, I don't think, apart from the one issue. Then again I don't like to push for it either :)

If you fancy putting another one together, that's fine by me :)

Is the figure a one off, or available as a casting?

Did you use weathering powders or chalks?

Hi John, I've prodded the dried plaster a few times and in areas where the plaster has been built up, it cannot be impacted easily. If you only coat the foam with one coat or so, it does bend inwards and crack, but it doesn't flake off, and springs back to it's old shape with no sign of impact - it'...

I had a go with various sharp tools as Ben suggested, but the wire brush really worked well 8) I've put a runny plaster mix over the wire brushed rock, and I think it's coming on quite well - painting will be the next nightmare, but it's looking like rock at the moment. Also, the seams between foam ...

Foam Rocks question

With just under a month to go to Warley, I thought it was about time I did some work on the layout :) I've got about 10 days of half term holiday to get it looking reasonably complete, and I thought the quickest way to go was the 'FRocks' route. At the moment I'm just gluing bits on, but I'm a bit c...

Hi,

I agree they look similar, but they're not made from old christmas trees :)

They're made from dried ming fern, where you can get it now is another question :(

Bob,

'Fraid not. :(

I was told about a couple of weeks ago that I have a geography field trip from thursday to the saturday evening, so I can't make the show. I can't believe they didn't tell us earlier, but seeing as it's a compulsory thing there's not much I can do :roll:
