This captures the look of the terrain very convincingly. Very well done sir.

Hi Greg
First off I hope your wife's health continues to improve.
Like Richard your model is helping me to understand what was happening back then. Also seeing this has encouraged me to read up on the history.
The groundwork is looking superb.
Jim

thank you Steve it's really getting somewhere now...the easiest part of the terrain is imitating reality...I mean when i put the gravel, pebbles and stones i let them down by gravity and then i glue them where they arrive...Isoprophyl and then white glue...I'm skilled now with the nebulizer... ;-)

Well Greg you certainly acheived that look with great aplomb. :thumb2::thumb2::thumb2:

Using the Isopropyl certainly breaks the surface tention and allows that great flow. Do you thin the glue as well, iI use a 30% mix with water. I found that Luke Towan has a great approach to diorams. The photo showing the debri from the water path is up there with the best !
Well done mate .
John.
