    Why use plaster cloth?

    I've noticed a number of people lately using plaster cloth on their layouts. My experience with it is that it is messy and difficult to work. At times it doesn't adhere to foam bases. If you are...

    Oh come now. I was running it at 1/5 normal prototypical speed for the sake of the video.

    Be glad to see you, Rod. And I would be up for a beer after the show on Saturday. I'm staying in the hotel attached to the Denver Mart.

    I think it needs a little dry brushing of a slightly lighter gray to highlight the texture. Right now it looks too uniformly dark.

    You aren't alone in that regard, Bill!

    As Ranulf said, March 7th and 8th. I'm curious where you got the March 2nd and 3rd date? That sounds like last year's event.

    Atlas is not alone in this regard. Fleischmann, Trix, Brawa and Arnold are the same. I expect they wait until there are enough pre-orders to justify the production run.

    Sky blue? What color is that? :D

    On a crystal clear winter's day of low humidity, if you look straight up the sky is a deep, fathomless blue. Summer, with more water in the air, the sky is quite...
