    Default Fence

    I haven't on the forums much lately as I'm working a bunch and trying to get more done on the layout. Took me a while but I finally got the fencing completed. Here's some pics:




    The framework is made from 24 gauge bus wire and the fence is tulle. Made a jig for the wire and soldered it together then super glued the tulle on. Quick spray paint, jab it into the foam board (hoping for some bends and kinks) and voila!

    Think of a bride's veil. You can get it at just about any hobby store or fabric shop. Makes the perfect N scale fence!

    The basic idea came from: http://ttrak.wikidot.com/making-chain-link-fence

    I did change some of it but you get the idea.

    Looks great Olie. Will have to keep your method (and materials) in mind for future reference
