    And the reveal! It is now fully cured, so I can share pictures!

    I used a single package of Woodland Scenics' new Deep Pour water. I opted for the pre-mixed Murky tinted water as opposed to getting the clear water and tinting it with one of the other colours. Prairie creeks are pretty murky.

    Here's some pics:













    And the broad overview:


    I have the water ripples stuff that I plan to add some currents and eddies to the creek, but so far I'm liking this a lot. Easy to use, and I can't argue with the results.

    That looks excellent. I don't even see any signs of surface tension making it curve upwards on the edges. If it were mine, I wouldn't touch it with ripples or eddies. Makes me want to go back and review your entire process.
    Cheers!

    What ripples I do will be fairly minimal. It is a creek rather than standing water, but it s a gentle flow. What I anticipate is a few accents/ripples here and there with no whitewater whatsoever.

    Very nice. I will tuck this away in my memory bank for future reference.

    Here's an update on the module, now with rolling stock! I weathered these three cars to be parked in front of the Elevator on our display days:



    A close up of each car, but only the one side. They are weathered on both sides. The graffiti on the end cars are handled by some microscale and other decals that were kicking around, and the middle one the graffiti is hand drawn to (mostly) match the prototype:






    Since this picture was taken, I've prepped the backdrop to be attached to the back of the module, but it needs to be repainted with clouds and background land added. I'll include those pictures once they're done, and maybe even under better light...

    Absolutely amazing, well done!
    Now you need to take it outside for a photo shoot.

    The weather needs to improve a bit more, plus I need to finish painting the back, the the backdrop and add some ripples to the creek.

    I'll see what I can do.
