Plastic sheet and coloured paper. Modelling water scenes with lake sheets and coloured paper underneath is ideal for easy model layout construction. 1. A 20 mm thick Styrofoam plate serves as the water underground to which drop for drop a little solvent (nitro-cellulose combination thinner) is applied - that creates a rippled underground. This is then painted with poster paint (blue and green). 2. The lake sheet is placed onto the body of water, the shore marked approx. 5 mm larger than the body of water and the sheet cut out accordingly. 3. The coloured water underground is made even more realistic looking with moss (170730/170729), bushes, etc. 4. The fitted lake sheet is then placed over the body of water and levelled out into the shore with compound (180502/180503). 5. To decorate the shore the same material applied for general scenic modelling is used. More tips on this in the brochure Modelling Made Easy (190840/190842).
