    I'm thinking of placing 1950's era bill boards on my layout. I can only do so with common materials since there is no model railroad shop here in the Philippines. Do you have some advice? :)

    Got to go "old school" Mike - whatever wood you happen to have, like stir sticks, toothpicks, popsicle sticks. Card stock like business cards (ready made billboard ;)), packaging, cereal boxes. Plus good old white glue or similar.

    You might want to check out the "Robin at his best" sub-forum of the Academy to see what is possible using mostly cerealboard and other "common" materials.
