    Another really well explained " how to ". I don't suppose Ross does one on constructing the Rick face itself ? That would be good as it looks really natural.

    Woodland Scenics have numerous videos for the modeller. It's great that they are flogging their own product ! I'm sure pinching their techniques, but using any one of the many other products available, would result in the same or similar effect.

    Whilst on Woodland Scenics, I have read that their 'E-Z Water' does not set hard. This is a problem if you need to store the layout upright, as the water will slowly slump to lowest side... :whatever:

    Cheers, Gary.
