Well,  I went to lowes today for some stuff and I looked at the lumber. 2x4x8 are $2.62 and 1x4x8 are $6.82 each what do you guys use for your layout? That's quite the difference if you building a good size layout? Thinking of 12x20 and was wondering what to use? Or rip 3/4 plywood? Dennis

Thank you John Siekirk !!!!!!!

I almost gave up. My wife and I was in a horrific accident that almost took both of us on May 2017. ( ) We both suffered, My wife broke her ankle and her knee in two places and wrist and had to get a plate installed, and she hit the windshield. Me I broke 10 ribs and damaged to my nerve in neck that control's my hearing and swallowing. I had 9 operations so far trying to keep my esophagus (stricture) tube from losing it's normal function. I had to sleep in my recliner because of ribs couldn't lay flat. Life has been a big struggle when both lose income at the same time. My children stepped up and took control and kept us in our house and I cant be anymore prouder. Well any way I was talking with John through here and John understands and I felt a great relief there's more to life then sitting around and suffering. I told John I was thinking of giving up on modeling. I called a guy and he looked over everything and said I'll give you $ 5,000 for the lot. I laughed and said I got over 30 kits of FSM AND SRMW'S ALONE NEVERMIND EVEYTHING ELSE!!! 20 plus totes full,But after talking to John and family I'm gonna try to get going after Christmas and start building. I'll never build all but I will build some. Thank you John and the men and woman here, Honestly this site helped me decide. Thank's Dennis

Hi Guy's, What the difference between transfer tape that Jimmy sell's and masking tape? I never had the privilege of working with it yet. And I like to learn the benefits of transfer tape vs masking tape. Thanks Dennis

Selling Kit... / To Many kit's
« on: April 29, 2019, 08:57:29 AM »
Hi Guy's I'm never will build all of these in my life time. Just to many 25 plus kit's,  I'm thinking of selling some of them here first then (John S pointed me to John.) Plus shipping.
No Ebay They force us to raise price's to cover all cost of sale. These are the price's I paid for the kit's over the years. Some are worth more some are worth less in today's price's. I Just wanted to treated fair and not hurt the next owner in this great world of RR Modeling.  Thanks for looking. Dennis

Morning all, I need help. I bought everything from micro-mark and its all new and fresh. I did 6 walls overnight and all worked perfect except one. It crumbled and everything is stuck to the resin cast I'm trying to make. I used the release like i'm supposed to but the rubber wont pull away and I'm not sure how to get the silicone off of the resin wall to clean it up? There's nothing special about the wall no huge detail like the Victoria Hotel casting but its stuck and I'm not sure what to do without gouging the silicone off the wall. Thanks Dennis
