It would be nice to buy at the very least a Supporting Membership, and you know, PAY for advertising.

Great idea, John. Let's discourage unpaid members from submitting news threads to the forums. That'll certainly make TMP better.

Thank you, Amera. Nice to know.

I'd like to see someone come out with terrain accessories/details that are compatible with standard pvc pipes in the various diameters (1/2", 3/4", and 1" for starters). Things like fittings, valves, pipe banding, rivet strips, access hatches, supports, add-on's, and etc.

This would be similar to other things I've seen such as terrain pieces/details that were compatible with pringle cans, soda cans, and etc.

Amera, if you run with my idea, I'd like to be the first to get a free set of the terrain pieces. lol.

The problem there is that PVC pipes come in a lot of different size, and anything that fit one size well won't work on others. I suppose you could pick one or two diameters and work with just those, but you'd never be able to cover everything.

Thanks for the suggestions David G, Andrew who designs and owns Amera is always welcome to ideas, and I will also pass on your details, if we make things from peoples suggestions, we do send freebies! There have been a few great suggestions from other forum users in the past we've used, for example our recent lunarscape. Just to reassure on posting this items, I have permission to post on the site from the Editor here at TMP, agreed back in May when we joined. As a small UK business we always seek permission to post, as we rely on word of mouth to let people know about our products. We do want to add value to the forum e.g give painting advice for general terrain questions, as well as letting you know of new products. We share pictures our customers have taken of our products painted on our facebook page at link if useful for inspiration and TMP users in the past have happily featured. I do appreciate the comment about being a supporting member John, so I have just donated to become an upgraded member today. regards and thanks for the responses Jane from Amera

I withdraw my earlier whine. grin

These are nice.

The point about making vac-formed components to enhance existing pipe is a good one, though. The question would always be how could they be made suitably 'universal' to fit a few different metric and imperial sizes of pipe.

Then, supports to lay the pipe in plus joints, valves and so forth woudlbe highly cost effective.
