    Adhesive powders

    Please go take a look at those powders and share the brand name with us...sounds like an interesting idea (adhesive weathering powder) and i sure would love to forego the Dullcoat spraying if possible. Thanks.

    Thanks Steve and Brakie! :)

    E Mo, they're Bragdon weathering powders - I highly reccommend them.

    Thanks Ron.

    Thought you might like to see the other side. This was shot on my new yard. I'm still testing the track so nothing is scenicked yet.
