Logging lake

Finally finished my lake for the wood mill on my layout extension , two thick coats of pva over coated with two coats of external clear wood varnish. I'm pretty pleased with the result, next up is a log drop and logging camp. https://i.postimg.cc/KKfN3T72/IMG-20200411-204008.jpg https://i.postimg.cc...
