I could only watch about a minute of it. The suspense was unbearable (snore).
Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

You think that was bad, check out the next one where he ties the track to a string and dips it in a weathering solution in a tube he made.

I was reeeeaaaalllly worried he was going to get into the tub with the track... :-X

I tried looking for a clip of Phil Hartman's "Anal Retentive Chef", but no luck... I did find this, though...

I'm surprised that all the comments are positive...rare for a youtube video.

I don't know if you aware but he mentions at the beginning that he only did this video because of viewer requests, or was it fewer requests.

Maybe requests for fewer steps...  Gotta love like 8 different parts to the weathering track step.  It's not like they're "buzzcuts" either; they're each pretty long.

Hey, on the one hand, good on this guy for sharing his techniques with the world for free.  His trackwork looks pretty good to me.

OTOH, there's something called "distilling," and I don't mean what Steve does in his basement; I mean trimming the fat and adding just the critical stuff.

If you were to add all of these videos up (including the scenery ones) it'd be like Pledge Week on PBS.

I can't get too caustic about a guy who just wants to share his love of model railroading and techniques with the world...  Besides, insomnia has met its match!!!

With 12 minutes of stifling video I died a bit inside.  I appreciate his enthusiasm, but he may be setting public perception of model railroaders back quite a bit.  First Rod Stewart outs himself about his hobby and now this.

Everything blends.  Just a general rule of model railroading...
