    once again harold, excellent work. Have you ever tried improving the appearance of plastic ties on commercial track? It may be more time consuming than handlaying. I've painted individual ties different shades of gray and brown and it greatly improves the appearance of trackwork. This is fine for my small layout, but eventually when i build something larger, i think I am going to experiment with your primer/staining technique on the ties.

    I never thought of using klillz as a primer on a model, my son uses it on most anything he paints to stop bleed thru. I can see that it would give an excellent base for effects like making faux wood & such. Great tip !!THANKS !
