A photo which I know Michael will be excited about. I finally managed to source some resin. Five times the amount of resin of last time, to run along the whole of Teasel's shoreline. 




Not the cheapest of purchases but now I've had practice on the river scene and Boxfile I now feel semi confidence in applying this on the water front! 


On the realist water look..... Thetford had an amazing amount of rain on Tuesday evening, lots of flash flooding in local houses. Our house is fine but unfortunately there is a slope down to the garage and the drain (although copes with normal rain fall) failed for to keep up for the second time in five years. It made the local hews: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-norfolk-57989377.






Learning from the issues of last time there is nothing of worry on ground level. I simply pulled the carpets out and left to dry in the sun the next day and left the garage to air. Within 24 hours I was back up and running. If it becomes more than a issue I might have to see if I can get some improved drainage, but I would expect that to be a rather pricy job!

OMG Chris - that's awful.
Good job you'd learnt from previous events but it still doesn't help you to sleep easy.  Make sure the layout is well protected !

Phew, you were lucky to get away with that one Chris. I just hope these things don't come in threes in your neck of the woods!

Thank goodness you know what to do for now and let's hope the world can soon understand that we have to deal with climate control right now, not hope it will just go away.

Best,

Bill

You have my sympathy - flooding must be one of the worse things.  Your good humour and patience are a virtue to be able to just shrug it off like you do.  I would be bleating Angle Saxon to anyone who would listen!!

On a serious note, we had all new drainage done as part of our house renovation and it wasn't that expensive - £1000 if I recall.  Got to be worth doing to protect your castle!

That is if interest. I’ll have a look see. Especially if weather is going to be more erratic. 


This evening I applied isopropyl alcohol on the sand and then a mod podge, water and dish soap mix to glue the sand down before the big pour. I also started building a dam with the Peco point packaging and hot glue. All the way down the bay. 


I think I may attempt the big pour on Sunday morning!

So this evening I built the great dam of Teasel! 





Made from the packaging of Peco points, fixed with hot glue to provide a temporary dam for the resin. Checked for leaks by filling with a small amount of water. 






Like my pervious pours I’ve built some dams to separate sections. The harbour area will look a little less blue. Getting excited about the pour. It’ll either make or break the bay. Fingers crossed!

As an expert ( :shock:) in having your layout surrounded by water, we're expecting it all to go swimmingly well.

I'll get my coat.............

First run of the Class 20 this evening as I may have accidentally applied the DCC chip upside down. Great Eastern Models looked at it for me and we’re quick to point out and rectify the issue. A little embarrassing but a massive advantage of having a local shop.

I did it. I bit the bullet and did the first pour. Quite a few drips to contend with and seal. Was a rather stressful hour!













Quite a rich colour for the bottom layer. Will add a second lighter layer on top once dry.

Wow - I could swim in that !  More of a mediterranean tone than I remember at Whitby but it really does look good.

How long did it take to set Chris ?

I agree it is a little blue at the moment. As this is the bottom layer, my hope is I can make the second pour a little greener, so you get a difference in colour between the deeper water and the shallower areas...

It is still setting. It is still pretty tacky this morning. The little river was pretty solid to touch at this stage but I guess as this is a larger pour it will take a little longer to set.

Hi Chris
Pour 1 looks very promising……it must seem bizarre creating all this water so soon after mopping up the flood?

Its a while since I last visited Teasel Bay. I have to say I am very impressed with the activity uou have created on the quayside…..looks great

Best wishes

Thanks. 
Some of the activity on the harbour side is relocated items from the beach! They’ll be returned once the pours are completed.

Woohoo - the sea has arrived!  Looks very much like the Med. I have been swimming in on holiday!  I trust there were no leaks.  It is definitely a beach scene now, marvellous!  Have you thought about adding any wave effects, andhow you will do this?

There are always leaks!!!  I had a frantic half hour trying to control them. The bridge from my boxfile is currently hot glued underneath a section of beach. I must get a photo.  I plan to tidy up a few bits and then add a second pour to raise it a little more. 

I’ll add some waves and white water much like I did on the river scenes.

Just playing catchup, my goodness ! So glad nothing major got damaged  :shock:

You should try one of these Chris. Might save a good amount of water getting under the door. It's temporary, you just put them out when you are expecting heavy rain. The rain soaks in and activates it, or you can soak it yourself to check it ' inflates' fully. At that price you could Deploy two or three where needed to form a triangle or half circle barrier to guide the water away from the door ?
