Placing Figures and details on your Layout
that actually stay in place
Over the next month or two I will cover some of the simple little things that I have found that makes modelling easier. Plus "stuff" I do which add to the final appearance of my layout. Some products you may already use or perform these techniques...congratulations you are way ahead of most of us. Some of the tips I will be passing along I just learned myself.
One product that I have been using for a few years now on my layout and dioramas to hold small things down is Mini-Hold...a US made products.
A few year ago when Lou Sassi was shooting by layout for Model Railroader he wanted to reposition some of my figures to enhance the scenes. He pulled out this little red plastic holder, rubbed the figures feet over the surface and placed them in place with no effort. Well that was really interesting. After taking a photograph he just lifted the man up and reset him facing a different direction and he stayed in place. I was so impressed with Lou's Mini-Hold I went out to our local hobby shop to order some. To my surprise Doug actually carried this product. This is all I now use to attach my figures to the layout. Mini-Hold does not leave any marks when objects are moved and my figures do not fall over unless I bump them. The one ounce container costs just over $3.00 and will last me forever.
