If you tape a small tinlet of paint to the blade it make a great job of mixing it instead of stirring it.

Make sure the lid is secure first :D
Thanks for the tip WTD :D
Yes, thanks for that :) . I'll make sure the lid is on tight. :lol: .

Re: Ratio SR Concrete Lamp Posts - Operational.

Thank you for this guide :) . I am in the early stages (still) of my lay-out and appreciate the guides like this by someone who has done it, worn the tea shirt etc. Specially the images, they say so much.

Re: Risers required for a tunnel

I can see now where I need to go. I need risers to raise the rail up to a mound and then down to ground level again. A tunnel on the return journey will go through the same mound/embankment :) .
Sorry for the confusion :roll: .

Re: Risers required for a tunnel

Thanks all for the visuals and measurements. I like the idea of splitting the up by going down half-way Terry but the way I'm doing this I'll have needed to plan that in. I have approximately similar length/span of 3m as yourself. But I failed to plan - that means I've planned to fail! :lol: Ah well...

Re: Risers required for a tunnel

I thought I understood what I meant. Now I'm not so sure :D . I will need to have the min. height that WTD says. I won't need any riser height until that is in place as they (Woodland Scenics) provide risers in inches etc. They also say 4% slope so I hope that is ok. I did save an image that someone...

Risers required for a tunnel

I think I am about to start on the model railway again. Knowing zilch about it and needing a tunnel, what risers will I need - bare minimum would be a starting point.
