Ok, I figured out the rest, but what the heck are "bug brushes"...?!?!?
How about "little brushes" older brother?
Kinda gets you right in the groindola...
See, Don, there you go, you're catchin' on way quicker than you thought...
Now I feel stupid
Neah, the hard one was LPB's.
Sheesh, LPB's, E'odes, bug brushes, I didn't think that MRR was that technical.
Oh hey, a true story regarding "bug" things:
We were playing poker and I was heading to get another brewskie when one guy asked me to get him one. Since he didn't say what kind, I kinda instinctively grabbed a yellow "bug" light that was sitting on top of the 'fridge. I handed him the bulb, and he says, "Hey, I wanted a Bud Light, not a Bug Light
Well, I think it was funny....
"NO!" said the proctologist, "I said I wanted a BUTT light!"
this thread has gone right into the toilet
"No," said the night hunter, "I asked for a buck light"
In order to get this Thread "back on Track" (if that's possible)
I cut balsa wood to size, painted it flat black, glued it in place. Then mixed the aquarium gravel with glue & spread it on top of the balsa wood.
I'm submitting the following.. Thanks for the idea Andrew.
Very nice Mickey!
Is that some of your large scale equipment?
Thanks Yep - it's G Scale -- 2 cars I bought a month ago ....
This is the kind of stuff I love. Thanks for the great ideas. The coal doesn't really look that black in the pics. Perhaps the picture doesn't do it justice. I wonder if I can use real coal since I live in Kentucky. There are plenty of black gold veins nearby.
Andrew does it again.
Thanks for the tips Andrew :thumb:
I will have to see if they will fit in N Scale.
Real coal is what Tony Koester used on the old Allagheny Midland.
Thanks for diggin this "oldy-but-a-goody" up again guys!
The "coal" is black aquarium gravel, and it is really black and a bit shiny, just like the real thing. It is just as black as the NKP hopper, but the picture doesn't show it that way for some reason.
Will - for N scale, go at it with a hammer for a bit, or simply screen out the larger bits.
Mikey, that looks pretty good :thumb: :thumb:
