Do any of you 3 rail o gauge guys now how to model a orange construction fence. My other topic is does anyone know how to make a sliding security gate. Please message me back at nicholas.wickberg@yahoo.com

Well if we message you then no one else gets to benefit from the answer.  So here are some ideas.

How about a bag of oranges?  If the bag is cut right, it could make a nice construction fence.

Or perhaps mesh drywall tape?  OGR member Serows1 made a fence out of this.  See this link and scroll near the bottom.

For the security gate, I assume you mean a chain link fence with a rolling gate?  You can buy them. Traindame here on OGR has kits.

You could probably make one too,  Search for "Chain Link Fence" and have fun reading all of the different ways members make theirs.

Have Fun!

I am making a large security gate to allow trains into a factory i'm making.  It's from a plastic sliding cover I found as part of a floor vent cover.  It was in two pieces and I cut one of them in half.  I'm making a frame for it to attach to a chain link fence and to hold the parts that will allow it to slide open and closed.

Sounds interesting Tom.  Any pics to share yet?

I've got your answer. Get a roll of plastic gutter guard. 6 bucks for about 20 ft. Cut it to the lengths you want and use metal rods as the posts. Attach it to the posts with craft wire or something similar. Get a rattle can of orange spray and you've got your fence.

On an old slot car layout I used this method to make "fencing." Here's a pic of a section of fence when I was experimenting.

Plastic screening and many craft stores sell mesh products that can be painted orange.

Woodland Scenics and Model Tech Studios both make fencing and may have gate sections.

Not yet.  I'm still working on the factory and then I'll have to learn how to post pictures.  Life is tough when you're a dinosaur.
