The trees have taken a sudden turn for the worse

May 10, 2011

I had based the armatures and will show you in detail very soon how I went attaching foliage with Hob-e-tac, but right now I can tell you that the first batch are ruined and I’m not enthusiastic about finishing the experiment. Applying watered-down glue to fix the Hob-e-tac’d foliage has caused the trouble…foliage has detached and the amount of effort to stick it back on is quite excessive.

    I’m going to continue the experiments, but if I examine the dollar value of the time I’ve used so far to make these trees, then buying ready-made ready-based ones from model railway shops is the most economical way.

    Did you know you can get Kwik Grip in a gel now?
    When you first apply it, it is very sticky, so probably perfect for foliage. If you leave it 20 minutes, you have to press it to stick.

      Where do I go to get a sample – model shops? Bunnings? Mitre 10?

        I got it from Bunnings.
        Here is what it looks like:

        ie, the green tin, not the red one.
        I would recommend using as soon as you put it on, its not sticky after 20 minutes unless you press two things together.
