Looks good Moogle and I especially like the colours in your beach scene. You mentioned going at it with a blowtorch. Does this mean that you used Woodland Scenics E-Z Water or something similar that has to be melted?

I had a go with E-Z Water for my water and decided it was too hard for me, but it looks like you've had good success with it if that's what you've used.

Long time no post. Well, done very little on the layout due to doing college work, starting a new job and family commitments. Done a bit of work on the sailing boat for the layout but only a bit of paint and repairing the mast. Yes, the water is WS EZ water. A chef's blowtorch is used. Might be small but you can still set light to your layout!  :-X

When I get more work done on it I'll post pictures.  :wave:

Good to hear from you, Moogle.
Yeah - real life can cramp our style at times ::) :)

Yes, life can cramp our style I agree! Been a good 18 months since I've been on here...  :o
Done very little modelling, nothing much to the layout but have finished a loco and done some work on another.



My B4 'Bandon Tank'. I'll put a write up elsewhere...



But that was last year! Still, hope to do more this year. If life lets me!  :laugh:

Smashing little loco, Moogle, and good to see you can still manage posting pics - unlike a certain @Bealman  :-X

Just checked your loco build thread, Moogle. Good one!  :thumbsup:

As for NewportNobby, I've cracked the photo business, and if he doesn't watch it I'll pm him a a picture of my surgery  >:D

Perhaps it's just my mind but there is a certain Madderport feel to those last pics.
