    The wife bought our youngest a couple Ertl farm sets for Xmas.
    Since I am the "train layout guy" I got nominated to whip up a little farm layout.
    She wants the buildings glued together and place on some foam like my trains.
    However, the plastic used on the buildings is softer than I am used to.
    Does anyone know what would hold stuff together without melting it?

    Try Aileens "Tacky Glue". It's a step up from carpenter's white glue. The craft stores have it. At worst, it won't dissolve the plastic.

    I ended up using regular ol testors model cement. Seems to work OK.

    May not be a train but still was fun and I used my layout building skills to make it.

    LOL, A true John Deere man would never ever have a red barn. :D Looks great. :) Most of the Ertyl items like that are close to S scale, so it's trains, just maybe not the scale you are modelling. :) Fred
