I got around to hang I think the most important addition the fire extinguisher.. and I know its a perfect location my 9 yr old grand daughter pointed it out...as soon as she came up to the trains..... The picture is a reproduction catalog display I framed in and mounted it sort of like a shadow box .I'm hoping I find the other one with a swinging lantern .. just wanted to share... daniel
Two thumbs up.
A smoke detector would be a good addition too, if you don't already have one.
I have one on the first floor second BUT not the attic... ! Thank-YOU daniel
sweet! love the shadow box.
Thought I make another wall art shadow box.. It not the original one but its the one my Mom bought me after throwing away my oldest brothers Lionel trains when he went to the service back in 1969.
Nice ….. care to share your technique for making the shadow boxes ?
If you run MTH locos with smoke and without adequate ventilation, your smoke detector might get a TRUE test! LOL!
I go to lowes and get 5/8 x1.5 inches poly trim item # 70676 83683 then I get that Luann board . Then you can either use poster colored sheets (the .99 cents type ) and use loctite spray adhesive 200 .
I cut the size cut the colored sheet or just as I did with the MPC make it the same size .Use the spray on both sides and wait @30 seconds and press together .... then measure your Luann board with the item glued on ..and miter the trim
I use a little liquid nails on my miter joints and pre-drill and add two finishing nails on each corner
Then lay your finished board and use nails with heads on I use 3/4x16 brass plated pins
this part is optional but I use those small eye screw on each corner to keep it away and able to breath against the wall then I add to more @3.5 inches from top and add a steel wire (the way I hang them with two small molly plugs and screws)
Some times the hardest part is knowing where to hang it and what to make! ...daniel
Thanks - looks like using the poly trim eliminates painting.
