Going to add a fish climbing the rapids. Fist carve the fish, this time I used plastic, a dremmel, and small file. Painted.



Place on the rapids where you think it will look good this first rise looks good.



When set start adding Mod Podge for the water effects as the fish jumps.



Let the first lot dry clear and then with a 'dry' white brush ass the white bubbles. Less is more.



Cover with more Mod Podge and keep adding layers, not too much at a tile, let the layers dry between applications.

Can across this gel stuff called Liquidtex, going to try it to make a splash where the fish jumped. See what it looks like when it dries.

Looks a little fishy! In a good way.

It's only make-believe

Wow now that's an interesting thought because I do have a small upstream rapid. Do you have a photo David?

David, Tried you idea found some micro glitter (less is more) Brilliant. No to persuade the wife that it was for RR modelling that I got glitter everywhere.........

Next I have to build a bridge which I know should have come first but it was a change in plan to do the river when the track was already laid. Indecision may or may not be my problem. But what sort of bridge? Maybe a basic log construction as it is very short.

Very cool.

I've been planning on adding my grandfather to my layout. He was a barber and avid fisherman/hunter. There is something to be said about being in the brook, chasing trout 15 minutes after closing time.

So far I am thinking Barber Shop, Hardware Store, Saloon, Bait shop, Lumber yard. Maybe number 6 will be Bar-b-que Pit? What else?
