Nice post Cascade ;]
Have you ever tried using expanding foam?

Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

Thanks Guys .I hope to see plenty more home made designs in the furture :cheer: ..
I will be doing another Diy project but a 3D design like the mountain, water fall and trees all with how to glue secure and and and just need a chance and ands some time to be in my favour and im busy tring to think of some thing to build B) .

@ bushpilot
You can get polystyrene at any hardware store, builders ware or Hobby shops .
I do have a site of a company that sells Polystyrene to the public and bulk aswell thats alot cheaper I just can rember where I put the info ..

@ Swipe
Ja I have It also works pretty well, apart from me breaking the trigger of the can and haven to make a hole in the tin to get the foam out. Needless to say pressure and expanding foam does not work well togther with a puncture hole. It was the messes project I have done and ended up throwing it away .

But it does work and you can use it to stick Polystyrene and stuff like that together It makes a really nice design tool to any project.

Lol @ Swipe .
The worse is when you get iton your fingers and hands .

Well if you make your self a metal frame out of chicken wire in the shape of say a mountain then you spray the foam into it then when you got it looking like you wont it let it dry abit then use a knife to cut the excess foam off and paint ..
Ask Hubby to help so if there is a problem again he cant be upset with you cause he had hes finger in the project to .HAHAHA

But I will tell you this for your first time thats pretty good 2nd will be better the 3rd will be amazing :)
