I have the opportunity to get this diesel for a good price but I’m kind of on the fence about it. My father (who got me into the hobby many years ago) doesn’t like it nor does my wife... hah But I think it’s very interesting. Anyone own this one already that can give me some positive reviews?:-)
I know I can glue figures on bases with white glue to layout, but if I want to remove them, alot of times the underlying latex paint pulls off from the foam or other material. I was thinking spirit gum like used for theater makeup might work, as you can put on mustaches etc and easily remove later. Any other ideas to keep figures upright and yet re positionable?
I own this locomotive. It ran in smooth fashion with good lights and sound right out of the box using an MTH Z-4000 transformer. I can't speak for MTH DCS, as I don't use this operating system. If you use Command Control or Legacy, you might want to consider the Lionel version. Bob
I just got one. Sound and performance are excellent. From what I can see of the pictures detail is slightly better on the MTH but Lionel's pilot looks better with minimal gap. Wishing I had gotten the two rail version but I will stick with this one now. Pete
I have one with scale wheels and fixed pilots. It's a beautiful locomotive and, like my other SD70ACe's from MTH, runs well, sounds good, and can handle O-72 curves (Gargraves/Atlas/MTH ScaleTrax) with the scale wheels if the track is laid properly. Can't help you with Dad and the Wife not liking the locomotive, but let's just say that my ex-wife's family absolutely hated my wanting a Bush '41 locomotive but I bought one -- it's MY hobby. Bottom line is, it's a nice locomotive that runs...
Two things I use, Rubber Cement, which can easily be cleaned off figures and the area they are glued to by just gently rolling/peeling residue off. Also very small piece of thin clear plastic such as found in many packaging from items we purchase for our layout. A small 1/4" or smaller for figures and items like motorcycles works great.
Detail Tack , from Micro-Mark, item 84774... Detail Tack Link ....will also work. Another product by Deluxe Materials is Tacky Wax ... Tacky Wax Link Deluxe Materials is a UK company, but their MANY innovative products for hobbyists....including model railroaders!...are available in the states through several distributors, such as Horizon and Walthers. FWIW, always... KD
Hi All Rman I'm still working on my One Gauge layout and came up with the same problem your discussing. Due to the fact I have several hundred figures and accessories that I will be using out side to enhance scenery and buildings so it's important to me they stay where I put them. I have used numerous adhesives like the examples that are already posted for my inside layout and there good. Recently I experimented with a different product that has really impressed me . I obtained it from...
