Re: Making simple culverts

Or even white glue? That’s actually what I used here in these culverts. It did dry a little opaque but served its purpose.

That's the one! You have obviously been paying attention, Mr Bond.

Oh no, wait....that's one of the other Aussies, isn't it.
Ah, your signature, d’oh, got it. There’s me thinking you were some sort of TV celebrity a la Bruce Forsyth, “nice to see you, to see you....niiiice”. I’m a dick.

It’s not necessarily more terrain but avoiding a situation where the attacker can be stalled and a firefight is the only option. Placing terrain at an angle so that things ...
