RE: [Z_Scale] An important question about the SW-1 kit
Is it posssible to use CA to hold pieces together for soldering?
That would make it easier for those with out the necessary skill sets
and tools to hold pieces together .

Metal-to-metal should probably be soldered; I can't imagine any other
method yielding the same strength. Those of us who are timid about
soldering (like me) will probably order a completed shell or a
completed engine, as long as you offer those options to the solder-shy

- I have a 250 Watt American Beauty set that I want to try out on those
shells. It has enough power to almost spot weld, so should be up to the
task. I originally was using it for handlaid track, but often it would
vaporize the copper off the copper clad board.
