    After QA and a nice thick coat of creosote, another set of P-K-G gears are ready to ship!

    Hi Mike, I just use some real thin basswood sheet and cut squares of the desired size, then I use a ruler and a .5mm pencil to draw the lines "with the grain". You can run a scribe across with similar results. Then I glued some cut match sticks under and applied some indian ink/alcohol wash. You can poke nail holes in it before wash too and they will pick up the ink, along with scribed lines.

    The coating on the gears is 50/50 flat cammo green/gloss black, then just a little white to get an almost black shade of semigloss green slime. They come from a junk motor gearhead. Next time junior takes apart something expensive, just pat him on the back, pick up the gears, and make an eaod! :D :D :D

    I've shrunken them down. The original ones are on the left in the top piccy, the rest are 5 and 8 ft in N scale. I'll keep the larger ones in HO land...
