I reckon that one of the most useful modelling things is a cup of tea. When in doubt, brew up. A cup of tea helps slow you down to think about what you are doing. And when you are finished you can dry the tea bag and use it on your layout.
People have told me that the humble teabag makes great tarps. They make a great swag too. Drying out the teabag took a couple of days but the swag was made in minutes. In fact it took me longer to work out where it should go than it did to make it.
All I did was to cut a strip one centimetre wide and rolled up. Then I tied it all together with the teabag string.
Now my swaggy will be able to get good night's sleep.
Until next time.
