... I painted the water surface with Marabu acrylic blue colour, and drybrushed it with a olive green colour from the same company....The first layer of water is created with Marabu window colour cristal clear, which will be followed by a second layer in the next few days. ...

Love the way the water has turned out. I'm interested in how you achieved the rippling effect? I am just about up to this stage now on my river. Did you lay the crystal clear topcoat and then use a straw blowing like technique? Or is it just a property of the Marabu product?

Cheers
TC

Hello Trevis,

the wavey effect comes from the way I aplied the window colour. The Window colours are sold in small bottles with a small nozzle. I aplied it with the nozzle. I made short strokes of about 2cm in length and placed them side by side, when one row was finished I started with a new row at the end of the former row, so that there was these wave effect.

Hello,

from 27th until 31st of October I and some friends attended the FREMO Meeting at Mammendorf halfway between Munich and Augsburg. There were 4 FREMO chapters with their modular layouts. In the great sports hall was the H0-RE (H0 Region Europe), and our small Great-britN modular layout. In the small gym was the AmericaN and N-RE (N scale Region Europe) modular layouts. A special thank goes to the organisation team as they spend much time and effort on planing these event, and provided all of us with enough delicous food. Here I show you some of the pictures I took at the meeting, but as I took a lot of them, I insert the link to my Flickr album at the end of these posting.

The module with the bridge was built by a FREMO and Spassbahner friend called Elvis Mueller, he regulary write articles for Modelleisenbahner and is a pro in landscaping. Here is the link to his website.

The bridge is very good but for me it is the trees which look excellent.
