  1. if of any help, Gilbert American Flyer trains were S scale. if availability to kitbash of adapt were a necessity, boot sale items might be available. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Flyer
  2. exceptionally well done casework. the entire vignette is very intriguing; I almost expected to see a cloaked figure lurking in the shadows.
  3. my contributions are well worth what you paid; no more, no less.
  4. this might keep you entertained for a bit: https://hoseeker.net/

  6. are you using a proprietary wash or making your own? https://tangibleday.com/top-7-best-washes-for-painting-miniatures-and-models/ if you have been using enamels, I assume your base material is non-porous (rather than foam). have you tried a clear sealer? and then a wash? the scale you're working may be offering area too great for a wash to flow (?) I would be interested to learn if anyone uses water soluble oil paints for a wash. I have only used pre-mixed since it serves me well enough.
  7. anything you do to make it more comfortable will translate into more time enjoyed working on the layout!
  8. with vertical board sheathing, you will want to include (in addition to a sill, shoe, double top plates ) diagonal braces at the corners & a minimum of one row of blocking @ midspan of the walls . don't forget nwb castings along the shoe to indicate attachment to the foundation.

  10. I think there are about a gazillion; but with some qualifiers in definition and that can be a slippery slope. as alluded, some think scratchbuilding & kitbashing synonymous. I would disagree in a pedantic sense, but for the exercise let's put the differences into one jar and move on. from my distillation, if one could scratchbuild basic shapes (box & cylinder) in a variety of materials, everything added to them would be subject to interpretation. (that's awkward, but i'm going with it for now) for example: I we build a barrel, a bigger barrel could become a wate
  11. there are proprietary "de-bonders" which work with varying degree of success. fine sanding or incorporate into the weathering scheme (least desirable).
