refuses to grow up
- 6 May 2016
Here in the US there is Tichy and Grandt Line making plastic rivets. Alan at G.A.L. uses them. He laser cuts the parts including the holes for the rivets.Cambrian models here in the UK - cheap as chips and easily solvent weld applied to plastikard / styrene sheet
That Glue method will really work in our scale. Would not want to do it for a Tender say, but fine for a modest area. Well worth a look at the vid if you have not yet.You can get plastic model rivet heads which are a pain to apply but very realistic. I forget the supplier name, maybe someone else will remember while I have a search.
EDIT found it,Cambrian Models (UK), £2 for 230
16mm Loco, Coach & Wagon Fittings
Or blobs of glue work well, see this.
Very nice detail etchings even with the minor error. Well worthwhile for the effort you are putting into the Stoomtram.Thanks! Yes, I know the '37'...
And here we have a tiny error... The TramFabriek (famous for their HO scale trams) made a few signs for my Backer & Rueb and I did order nr. 37. Not knowing then the 37 was NOT a Backer & Rueb, but a Werkspoor! With completely different shields! So now I ordered number 16, the first 'square' Backer & Rueb built for the RTM.
Oh and it looked SO GOOD already... No one would ever notice the error, but hey, I do know...
