River bed laid but it looked too bright.

I covered it with dilute black acrylic and another sprinkling of talus. Hopefully that’ll do the job.

Leaf litter is an opened green tea bag. I don’t do green tea!

E-Z water melted and laid, although it wasn’t quite so e-z. I ended up with a ridge on the first pour, so had to melt a bit more and thankfully that sorted it out.

 

First the disaster. Make sure the diorama is flat otherwise you end up with this:

Now on a flat surface, another layer before the first had cooled allowed the imperfections to melt and a nice finish achieved.

After a bit of sanding, I’ve fitted the back scene. I’ve also put some reeds in along the bank edges. I also found two telegraph poles to fit either side of the bridge and fitted some detritus on the far bank. There was an imperfection in the e-z water under the bridge, so a dumped sleeper will have to hide that.

Again, Goblin will have to give a bit of scale to the layout. The Andrew Barclay is sat on the shelf in the living room so wasn’t to hand.

Nice model work, I do like those long rushes along the waters edge.

Taking photos is very useful as the rushes on the left hand side look too regular. A few more are required I think.
