Preparing the route
Before you rush into laying your steel wire and get cars moving around your layout, take a moment to plan the route for each vehicle and draw it on your road. With the route drawn, try and add a few obstacles such as a parked car to add extra interest and a more prototypical feel. When you’re happy you can begin to lay the wire. I fitted the steel guide wire and fed it in around the route, adding a drop of cyanoacrylate here and there to hold it in place. Once the wire is laid the filler is mixed to a creamy consistency (two parts filler to one part water) and then spread over the guide wire, sealing any gaps and leaving a smooth road surface. Once dry, it can be painted with the road surface grey paint and allowed to dry. When the paint is dry the pavements can be put in place and you’ll be ready to let your traffic loose.
