The glue, or not to glue ?
Here's a question - Is it better to glue road vehicles down to a model railway, or to leave them loose ?
If they are glued down, you can't lose them, unless the glue lets go, and they are always in the right place. It's one less job at the end of the show to go around and remove them from the display. Light fingered punters can't help themselves during the show either.
On the other hand, loose vehicles can be moved around the layout so it looks different every time it's exhibited. But they can be left behind, or more entertainingly, left on the layout when it's being packed up so you get the fun of finding a battered whitemetal kit on the floor after hearing the clunk.
What do you think ?
