Re: Best glue

Hmm. That's a great idea... Anyone got suitable any sized Fuse Wire? Rewireable fuses went out with the Ark in around 1995/1990! But unfortunately it doesn't help with a 98% full Revell bottle and a blocked metal delivery tube! How can the tube be cleared? Is there a liquid solvent that the tube ca...

Re: The footbridge/subway dilemma

If it were me I'd probably go the subway route but building a completed tunnel section below base board level complete with passengers and lighting. But that's just me I guess ;)

Re: Hornby and the price increase.

I keep boxes for a lot of stuff that I buy -- a/v gear, model railways, and so forth. Not only does it make storage easier, when it comes to sell something having the original box definitely adds value, and makes sending stuff more straightforward.
