Hi all,
i had a question on a smoke unit:
Aristo-Craft 29309 RS-3 Smoke Unit
I am modeling in HO, but I bought this unit to use as a volcano smoker.
i used a few drops of local hobby store smoke- it was nasty smelling- son was choking- not like when i was a kid. SO I found megasteam... vanilla scented. seems to be a suspended solution, flakes float in it. Well, the unit will not smoke.
I left a vm with them to see if the cold during shipping messed it up or what not.... but what I dont know is HOW many drops of smoke liquid should be dropped down the stack of a G scale unit.
-also- anyone else use or have issues with megasteam?

I looked into the book let that came with my aristo rs3, the smoke
unit takes 25 drops of ART-29601 smoke fluid. Make sure the unit
is turned off before filling, do not run it dry or you burn the unit out.
