    I know this subject has been covered before,but I
    have a short retention span, BALASTING.
    Is the formula 1 part water,2 parts glue, with a drop or two of soap? John

    Also before balasting it is a good idea to spray a mist of alcohol over the ballast to break the tension of the sruface. This makes the glue mixture flow and wick its way thru the ballast much easier.
