I love this! Many congrats on your richly deserved reward!
I feel bad that I didn't clock this before - I guess because you got on with the project in good time unlike myself ;)

I'm especially curious about your experiment with water effects; may I ask - What did you mean by 'gloss mod podge' as regards the final wave effects? Or if you formed the waves/river flow some other way, what was that?

At any rate, if this really is your first try at water effects, I'm hugely impressed.
WWI features a plethora of interesting seaplanes, but modelers rarely seem to risk their beautifully crafted machines in creating a suitably appropriate scene. I'm hoping to take the plunge some time, so many thanks for your fine example!

Cheers
Mark

Same thoughts here.  That water is done remarkably well.

Thanks Mark - mod podge is a craft product, which has quite a few uses, see here:

I applied it with a brush over the top of the cured resin and used an airbrush to create the ripples.

Thanks again,

A couple of questions, Brad.  How thick was the Envirotex lite layer?  Did you pour multiple layers to build up to the final thickness?  How thick was the Modge Podge layer?

Any watch outs or potential problems in creating the water effect?

Thanks,
Ken M.

Thanks Brad - didn't realise it was a brand name :)  And I think it must be the same or similar stuff that several firms our way offer to complement their water effect products. Great to see how effective the results can be, in your scene. Must experiment!

Cheers
