Alan, I have a DVD I'd be willing to sell you.
Check your PM.

As you think, so will you be.

Having just learned of Troels fantastic works I wanted to obtain a copy of his DVD. Sent a mail to Troels and he informed me that they are all sold out! Great for him and others but not so good for me. If anyone knows where I can get a copy please let me know.
I have read thru all the chapters and do have a question on the basic building and painting procedure. For doing clapboard siding do you select a colored paper, cut it to size attach it to the tape and then paint or do you paint the paper first then cut then apply?
Thank you
Alan



Alan, I paint the paper with a natural sponge first, cut it to strips and apply them to the structure. I had to stop using carpet tape, as it lost the grip here and there after a year or two... so I use fast gripping wood glue. Finally I apply some extra weathering to the finished structure...

Have fun!

Troels,
Thank you for the procedure! When I went shopping for paper and paint the other day I came across this tape. 3M #924. Shop owner said thay have been using it for years for mounting paintings to mount board with no issues. Thought i would give it a try.

Scotch® ATG Adhesive Transfer Tape 924 quickly and permanently bonds a wide variety of materials including uncoated and coated paper, card stock, paper board, matting, lightweight fabrics, foils, flexible plastics and foam board. Offering high adhesion and excellent UV resistance, it easily bonds to difficult, varied and textured surfaces, including areas with high humidity and sunlight

We will see!

Anyone have a relative idea on what the height is for single and two story builds would be or do you just sort of wing it when laying out your buildings.

Alan, I used a 3M adhesive transfer tape - not sure if it is #924 - to attach a styrene strip to metal and it has stayed in place with a fair amount of handling. A release paper might help you align your clapboard strips. Once the adhesive makes contact it grabs and trying to peel it loose from paper may be very difficult.
It might be overkill for that application.

Some glue sticks go on smoothly, don't warp paper and hold very well.

A thinned glue like Aileene's Tacky Glue, Weldbond, Titebond, or similar applied sparingly would also work

Alan I pretty much wing it. Using 8ft ceiling heights. will give you a 'close enough' idea. IMHO being slightly under scale is better. In O scale full measurements sometimes can give a building tat is to bulky and dominant.
