Help with layout scenics
At long last I have found the best way to attach backscenes to hardboard. Had to redo them after using PVA glue which created loads of problems. Used this time Solvite Ready Mixed Wallpaper Adhesive and it has worked perfectly. You can adjust them slowly if you need to and it has dried out nicely . It looks good also where I rounded the hardboard to avoid 90 degree corners.
Thanks also for posting this one. I have this afternoon finished my base boards and have started looking at back scene after putting down some track. I was wondering if hardboard was the best thing to use, and how to stick it down. In the past one or two people have told me horror stories about sticking down back scene. So thank you from me, I will follow your advice.
That is good idea teedoubledee. That's a mouthful I think it would solve the bubble problem for sure. You could hold up one top end of the sheet with tape in one corner and work from there. You have done that before so could you tell me do you think it is best to put paper on hardboard flat or would you fix hardboard up first. That may sound daft question but wondered what your thoughts on that are. As yours have probably been up fitted for some time, how have they stood the test of time.
My back scene, using the double-sided tape method, was attached to the boards whilst they were flat on the floor and then the boards attached to the layout. The back scene is just shy of a foot above the layout height. I taped only across the top and let the baseboard hold the lower edge in place. Certainly is wrinkle and bubble free. R-
