    3-D Printers

    In your question you mention buildings, which can be easily done with a filament printer, which costs from $150 and up, but figures, which you also mention, are better done with a resin printer, which costs more, and has a greater cleanup routine ... For reference, I only have a filament...

    Flashing LED circuit?

    looks very similar to the one I photographed, the capacitors might be a bit smaller, but not a big deal ... the default rate was about 1 flash per second .. the price is a bit higher, but not much either ..

    What brand of DAP to use for laying foam/ cork roadbed and track ?

    I used DAP alex plus, in the clear version [white when applied], and it's held up well, over six years now .. for foam to wood, and track to foam , just a thin film is all that is needed, spread with a scrap piece of foam or something like that .. no paint needed, just ballast over the top ..

    NMRA Standards Gauge

    I used an On30 Forney to accomplish much the same purpose , the only piece of On30 that I have, lol It was easier to use than the gauge, I have two or three of the gauges, I keep misplacing them...

    Xenforo itself does have the ability to sort members by join date , but I -assume- that option is not available to the average user ??

    Requesting feedback on idea for foam noise dampening on layout

    for best sound insulation, you need to use flexible caulking, but drawback is that DAP is not water soluable like white glue ..[which is very hard, and transmits noise]

    Requesting feedback on idea for foam noise dampening on layout

    i used a two inch layer on top of 3/8 plywood, the results were good ... remember to use a flexible adhesive on the foam, i used DAP alex caulking .. i also glued the track to the foam, again DAP caulking
