Being in nurses clutches can be a frightening thing Kevin - I'm not surprised you're pleased you escaped.


Take care and hope all goes well from now on.  :thumbs

Hi Matt.    On another subject???  Back to Hornby and my clumsy hands on dismantling a 2Bil or 2HAL. I received a reply from Hornby and the bodyshell window clips. The mention of “ glazing clips “ has got me guessing. What and where are they situated?  Best wishes Kevin

Hi Kevin, delighted that you are back thinking of models - of the train variety, not those nurses.  On the subject of your back scene, I modified Phil's version of stapling them and just glued them along the top.  It has worked very well.  As it was only light paper, I used pritstick, but you may try something similar and you don't need to be too nimble to get it done.
Michael

Hi Michael. Thank you for your reply. But the modern uniform is very good for protection, more like overalls than the “1960’s carry on style “. But having said that I must be serious and carry on with the scenery. Best wishes Kevin

Hi Michael.   Thank you again for your reply. I have had some success with “pritt-stick” with paper to paper, but, when I used it for paper to cardboard kits, not as much. And as far as my back ground scenery to plywood I doubt if it would work.  Best wishes Kevin

Use wallpaper paste Kevin, You can buy a small bag. Mix a SMALL amount of powder into some water so you get a VERY watery, runny solution and brush  a heavy coat onto the plywood so it soaks in (front and back) and leave overnight to dry. Repeat with a slightly thicker mix and again leave untill its thoroughly dry. You can if you wish, do a third coat but two SHOULD be enough. Now mix some paste as you would if you were hanging wallpaper, coat the back of your backscene, leave to dry for 5-10 minutes and then apply another coat to the backscene and then stick it to your plywood. You can roll out any bubbles using a glass or jar on its side, carfully roll the edges of the backscene over the edges of the plywood and hold in place with clothes pegs ( preferably old weak ones) if you think the pegs are too strong and may mark the surface of the backscene paper then cut a card strip to put between the peg and the paper to spread the load and stop it marking. Check regularly for a time to make sure the paper isn't wrinkling or creasing and then leave it somewhere to dry slowly overnight.  You should get a good bond to the pre primed plywood  :thumbs

If your not sure you can practice with some offcuts to get your mixes right before doing the actual backscene ?

P.S glazing clips on your 2hal/ Bil ?? No idea probably Gwiwer or SRMan are your best bet on those  :hmm

Hi Matt.  Thank you for your reply. That is an excellent idea, but, my original idea was to paint the scene until I realised that since I gave up Ale I am not such a good painter. And then I found a suitable scene from Noch.And now the plywood lid/ back drop is primed for paint and the primer had got slapped on?
Best wishes Kevin

Then the plywood is sealed Kevin. Just still follow the steps above but I would only do one coat of wallpaper paste and mix it a bit thicker, to prime the painted surface. If it dries really fast then do another coat. People wallpaper over paint all the time !Cheers

Matt

Hi Matt.  Thank you for your reply. But, when I said about the primer, I also said “SLAP “ that was the sound that the brush made, which leaves the primer being somewhat rough to go with the clouds. Best wishes Kevin
