Great work. I like it. It is a totally different look to one that I am used to. I am getting ready to give my layout an interesting look also. :)

What was used to create the water?

Sorry gents, to take so long to reply.

The water effect was an accidental discovery that Clear Gorilla Glue is both relatively inexpensive and well suited to water effects. It is more viscous than other resin products I've used, and does not penetrate and soak plaster cloth, as do the resin products, or epoxy, products. It sets up easily and what appear to be trapped air bubbles, I assure you, are reflections of sunlight, as it does not aggregate bubbles the way resins do.

Thank you for the kind remarks, they are motivational, particularly as I am a great admirer of British model rail artists.
