Default How to-Cereal blast fences 1:400

Since I read the topic where Gimala got bickered at for absolutely nothing atall, and it went off on a tangent of complete nonsense... I will explain what this thread should have ended like in one thread.

Step 1 cut out a rectangle of card from a cereal box about 7cm long and 2cm tall.

step 2 glue this piece of card to a piece of paper larger than it. Draw thick red stripes on it vertically to resemble the chequer-theme.

3 draw lines across in black biro or fineliner to make it look like the metal slats it its made out of

Step 4 cut out the surrounding paper by following the cardboard edges with a pair of scissors. Alternatively you could paint the piece of card but this is less messy and is quicker

step 5 Fold the bottom of the card fence horizontally to make a small L shape. Make sure the tab facing the airport floor Is not as long as the height of the fence as it will look very short. Let it be clear that this thread is simply to inform those who are interested in being creative, and is not open to harbouring some people who blah blah blah on about nothing relevant.

And he made progress, then some people brought back a topic from the dead and decided to provoke a flamewar for no apparent reason. Once he understood how a forum is supposed to work, he showed great improvement. In that thread alone, he also had shown some nice work and some good stuff for others to consider! Before those folks had decided to dig up an issue which had been by then resolved for at least a good month and a half it actually ended on a very good note, with compliments given to Gimala by the same people who had earlier gotten on his case!

Now that is very useful. One thing I can recommend is to help give it some weight so it'll be easier to place down and harder to move by accidentally breathing on it. Like a small piece of balsa or basswood, or even some evergreen plastic. Another upside is that it can be even mroe stable this way too!

For step 3, you can also try a dark grey or black colored pencil if the other two are not immediately around. But keep note that if this approach is to be taken to keep the tip constantly sharp. An advantage of keeping it sharp is that liens will stay fine, downside of course, is that you'll have to constantly be hawkish about how sharp the tip is, and your pencil will likely find itselfThis is a technique that i used on my T-Gauge layout when I made the roads (tried using paint markers, but found that with the paper I used, the paint actually get absorbed into the material and not much of a marking could be made.)

I agree LOT 737-300,but it is a shame that this forum is plagued now and again by non-aviation posts and such, and sometimes things can get out of hand. On a better note, I have started to build a 1:500 airport which has originated from a Herpa starter set which included free aircraft including a LOT 737-300! Just guessing it may obviously be one of your favourite aeroplanes. The set comes with 3 small plastic blast fences so I don't think I will need to make any.

Well, non Aviation Posts have their place (General Squawk Talk). Things do get out of hand, but that's the life of a forum I suppose. At least it didn't get as ugly as it did on the T Gauge Forum This very small community lost a great internet forum and a great modeler's online presence as a result of it!

That's how I started! Same starter set came with the same plane, and for an OG model, it is actually quite nice! I do like the 737 classic in general, you can't go wrong with any of those! That set comes with a lot of neat things to help give an idea of how to start, amongst other things that can be used later. I actually loved all the models it did come with. I wish you luck in your first step. Before you know it, you'll find yourself carefully designing an airport layout and your own custom buildings!

Yes, the starter set is a great opportunity to start your herpa collection without having to buy individual accessories, they're very expensive that way! Also on my new thread about my new 1:500 Europe-style diorama, you can see there are a few OG models that just have a small dot of grey paint on the wheels, makes them look more realistic. I see many 737-300s and 400s and ATPs at my local airport in Coventry and they are one of my favourite aeroplanes. If I ever attempt a custom I will do either one of the two cargo operators that fly them because I haven't ever seen a Herpa BAE ATP yet to customise!
