46271RE: [Z_Scale] Black Bear Construction Co. N Scale Truss Bridge Kit

      I've used Black Bear's kits - I'm working on the truss bridge currently.

      To stain the pieces, I used what I had on hand: a Prismacolor marker. I
      didn't want to use anything water-based for fear of warping the very slender
      pieces. The marker is permanent, transparent and easy to use. I used a tiny
      permanent black marker for the bolts.

      I attended Andy's presentation, but I cannot remember what he recommended
      for staining the wood.
      Anybody HELP
      Yes they make Z scale jigs. That is all Andy was selling at Zcon.
