48" by 17" Module for O

As part of modular group display a drop on module with water scene is being constructed. This is the terminus of a long river scene not shown. Small inlet becasue of the size constraints.

the following laser cut kits were used.

Harbor Masters Office- Atlantic Scale Modelers.





Up the Creek Paddle Company- banta modelworks.





Cabin Creek Company House-BTS





The base is luan to which foam has been glued or bare. A line of clear silicone caulk (white -still wet) was used as a stop for the magic water pour.

A piece of adhesive drywall tape was placed along the leading edge of the luan so half was not on the board. This will act as a scenery flap for the drop on section for a nearly seamless look from the viewers perspective.






the next photo shows the application of tinted fusionfiber over the adhesive tape. 1 1/2 teaspoons of brown tinting powder from Scenic Express was mixed with 2 qts of water and fusionfiber was added until thick and pasty. We also used Colorado clay tinted with some black powder for a redish grey color.





The fusionfiber is spread over remainder of scene, except where paddle co and harbor master building are located. In this case the fiber is spread about just inside the of the footprint. The buildings are pressed into the wet fiber.





The larger stones, deadfall,are added folllowed by ground covers and the area misted with wet water. Static grass was applied on one small section.





let this dry and hopefully finish it this week. got to make some trees in the meantime

Thanks Hugh

Today I did the first pour of magic water tinted pale green over the blue green bottom. Bit too blue in center. Will continue with another light green pour. Did a small experiment of using static grass gun on a section of the magic water pour. I liked the results so did it along some of shoreline.





next pour, weathering powders used to enchance green color

Started planting a few trees. The pines are stuck like a pin into the dry fusionFiber. The foreground trees hole was sliced out with pen knife to eliminate flying foam. Still needs root structures.





To solve the issue with water water I did the first coat with acyrlic gloss medium (Golden brand) for ripple effect. Photo shows just after application while still white.





In the background are two modules done by Kent, a member of FCTT.









this photo shows Kent use of a mix of sculptomold and FusionFiber.





Still need to color rocks with weathering powders or washes
