G`day Max,
Merry Christmas mate.
Your water is really looking the business. It will be interesting to see the next batch of pics.
The video is also excellent.......I reckon folks could use it as a means of relaxation......and the layout is just beautiful.
:cheers  Gormo

Thanks, Gormo.
Merry Christmas to you.  :cheers

Sol and I are helping a fellow NMRA member with his layout this week, so not much progress expected.
27 turnout motors to fit.  Each one a botch job repair from a so called, "professional."  About an hour to fit each one.  :pedal

You and Sol are good mates to have, to help a fellow modeller out, I think the prospect of refitting so many point motors would fill me with trepidation :shock:, good luck!

Cheers, Pete

If you're still having trouble, you could try polyester casting resin with double the recommended catalyst. The extra heat from the catalyst produces a wave effect as the resin hardens, which I only imagine would be enhanced by stippling as it sets. As the resin starts to set, make wakes for any moving boats you want to set in the "water" with a skewer or similar pointy stick. Drybrush these with titanium white acrylic afterwards. Read about this method in a collection of layout-building articles

Thanks, Brendan.

I used resin on my last layout.  This area is going to be way too big.

I'm using plaster painted with acrylic, then Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel medium.

Followed by white weathering powder.



Cheers

This layout's far to precious to allow it to disappear off the main message board so hence the 'bump' !

Just gotta see then thar 'blocks' in action...
