my advise is to get or use a heat gun on the ends. I also have wanted to build some tip wagons but the channel curve creation was daunting now that I see your effort I'll have a go at it. I have a Milwaukee digital heat gun I bought from our local Home Depot for $37.00 should work just fine. I'll po...

Air brush for colour wanted add some ultra fine dirt etc.. and vola Now myself I recall once (way, way back when) attacking my grand dads lather brush and using ...

for a wetting agent you can try vinegar but my concern would be with it gumming up the pump should it react to the rubber and or seals. There is a wetting agent available that one uses for thinning air brush paints and also some inks that would be ideal. I would talk to one of the local art shops, o...

Hey there Peter so sorry to hear about your first attempt and all.
Could you fill us in a little on what you are doing and using that is different this time around? Also for my interest at least I see that you have one very tight curve on the middle siding what radius are you using there?

Well for my two cents worth if I may I know I'm a fairly new body on the scene here but that has not stopped me from jumping into the deep end. My thoughts on the features are simple they should be such that help tell the story or purpose of the layout so as to not be confused with simple scenery

Well you know doing a layout of an urban ultra light transport may be a tad modern for most of us theme wise it does work well as a totally unusual modeling concept. Think of the scene settings you could plan for and the track detail that could be included, third rail and all those bolts :)
