Thanks for all the comments and likes!

Once I get my worktop area cleared (didn't show you that  :P) I can get back to doing some more on the actual layout!

Cheers  :beers:

This looks a splendid set-up.  Tigger has been very busy!

Thank you for these super photographs.

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

Adding some Water
« Reply #213 on: December 22, 2019, 08:18:00 AM »
Just a quick post to about a little experiment with water effects.

The backdrop pic shows a nice river that seems to be right behind the odd hedging, with a convenient drop in the foreground that I'd planned. So I tried adding a bit of water effect.


Then I decided that the hedging didn't really work crossing the stream like that ... so I put in a wooden dam-like structure that might be holding back the river? And added a bit more water effect that you still can't quite see. More work to do on the foreground!


A little further along from there is another small stream ... that has also had two 'coats' of water material.


A close-up of the front is beginning to look more like a water effect I thought?


Anyway - here are some of Flossie's Swiss cousins enjoying a post wine harvest stroll through the vineyards!


Off to the Parents-In-Law's for Christmas so I will wish you all a cracking Christmas and fantastic New Year!

Cheers  :beers: :beers:

Thank you for these wonderful pictures; the backscene effect is terrific.

Flossie was thrilled to see her Swiss cousins!

Best wishes.

Hi GreyWolf,

All looking good. I still haven't had the guts to dabble with water but one day.

Hope you have a great Christmas and New Year too and looking forward to more progress.

On the sheep front, am building a cider apple orchard at Port Regleun with grazing sheep. No layout pics so these Breton cousins will have to do to say hi, joyeux noel and not baaaaaaaah humbug  :no:....

Cheers weave  :beers:  :beers:  :beers:
