Hi,

The very helpful moderators have pointed out that my original thread about a mini logging layout has reached maximum capacity:old dude: and it is best to start a second volume. So this is the beginning of part TWO:2t:.

Here is a link to part one if you are interested as to how all this got started:rah::

Hi Doc.

You could have continued.
But the Thread had a technical problem.
It would not except any further additions.

A number of pt.IIs have had to be started following the server-crash.
Your pt.I should be perfectly OK though.
I checked it last night.

It's all viewable & linkable to in the normal way.
Just not able to create a new page.

:moose:

Si.

Keep up the good work Doc.
I know it's gonna be a goodun !

Hello Doc,

Thanks to Super Si I can now thank you for your above reply re: holding screws etc. in Styrofoam.
"Liquid Nails" isn't available in the UK but we have supposedly equivalent "filled co-polymer acrylic" products as they are known such as "Gripfill", "Sticks Like Sh*t" etc.

Interestingly & worryingly they do not have a 100% reputation in the UK for sticking EPS type foams - apparently they never 'go off' (set) where air cannot penetrate between firmly packed EPS sheets. Hey-Ho, should have taken up golf instead.

Regards,               Michael

Hi Michael,

I guess you can try an experiment sticking two scrap pieces of foam together with the UK product and see how well it holds.

I am about to venture in to uncharted waters as I am going to try a completely novel way of painting foam. I will definitely start on some practice scrap pieces.L:

Over the years, I have used epoxy to secure foam together and holding drywall screws in place. I use a 15 minute set time 2 part epoxy so I have some time to get everything together & right. The screws are driven in a ways, backed out, and the epoxy smeared on the threads and screwed back in...carefully and without too much torque! Yes, I also used Liquid Nails for foam but it seemed (to me) to be too thick and the pieces had a bit of a gap when joined. How do I hold foam together when gluing ? I may use some bamboo bbq skewers stuck in to hold things and maybe some masking tape for some applications. Everybody has their own way.

Woodie

Michael,what's the point of golf,you get a ball ,hit it away as hard as you can,then go and find it (hopefully)in all types of weather
At least with model railroads(railways as we say in aus)you make some great progress or stuff ups,that at least you can fix or redesign.You become a master designer,plasterer,carpenter,electrician,gardener,landscaper and track layer.All these trades with poor pay ,but the rewards are great.Have you guys tried using PVA wood glue for the styrofoam,I have used it for years with no problems,just a thought.Peter.

This is a very good idea woodie. I will have to try it sometime in the future. Thank you. Tom

Hello Peter. Yes, in the past I have used the wood glue with good results. Fortunately, there are several good adhesives for Styrofoam panels in model Railroad scenery. Doc Tom

Hi Doc :wave:

I was looking at some stuff today & saw these.
I thought of you.
Dunno how cold it's gonna get at Kittom.
If it goes sub-zero these might come in handy !

Michael has experimented with other hobby's, notably shrubbery pruning, with limited success. Perhaps we will see other efforts from him in the future. I hope so!!
