    Hi all -

    Anyone know of source for this, or way to model it?

    Need to make pilotdeck, walkboards, etc.

    been thinking of this my self here is a piece of .020 styrene with crape from fabric store on it just brushed serface with laqure thinner and laid crape on top used black so it could be seen the size of the piece is 1by2 in.

    That's not a bad idea, Jim. Gotta remember that one!

    Jim - that looks really great!

    dsfraser - the other half of my question's answered! I assume that the pic is an enlarged section - know the actual size of the sheet? Anyone used this? Right scale for HO?

    Thanks guys!

    What you are looking for is made by S&S Hobby (wkw pn: 643-311).
    It is .005 styrene with the tread embossed. I used it for the walkways on my GATX SD38-2.

    Thanks, Dan - I like the price on that, too!

    BTW, what size is the sheet?
