    Hi Rook,

    Do you have any old software that runs on Windows 7 that can't be used in Windows 8-9-10? If so, it's worth keeping the old PC...

    Hi Schedule22,

    I've done paper awnings for buildings(Waldorf-Statler from the Muppets). It's mostly tinkering with the printing until you get the correct dimensions.

    Hi Jweir43,

    You would need to push the wires through the "soda straw" conduits.

    The straws are smooth inside...compared to the rough interior of a drilled or chisled hole in your scenery.

    Hi New2Nscale,

    It's cheaper to design and build a "one size fits all" powerpack.
