    Hi all
    this is not so much a WIP but a repair and second attempt at solid water ,he suffered some damage on the trip home from Euro,and the first attempt at the water ,well the tide did truly run out:oops:
    The water seems to be setting this time but will need a top up ,keeping everything crossed;)
    All critique welcome .

    Yip the duct tape done it.
    The whole scenery is made from balsa wood and the block and tackle is from walnut off cuts as the balsa was to soft.
    The rope is fly line backing braid.

    Did the water leak out on the train? Much better this time Ron, looks like the tide has come in! You know my thoughts on this lovely figure and the dock, first class.

    Very nice piece Ron. What did you use for the water? The seagull poo on the top of the wooden frmae is great attention to detail.

    The seagull shit was Dels idea ,he really does go into detail :eek:

    the water is senic materials product solid water ,it is just about dry I am going for a second pour to take it up to the brim so you don't see the
    meniscus affect.

    I've seen this figure up close and personal and it's a cracking piece of work by Ron " the tambourine man".

    This piece has been through the mill so to speak, the first attempt at the solid water leaked everywhere and what was left never dried :(
    So a bit of a salvage operation to get it ready for euro ,with the tide totally out:) redone the water and praying for it to set now :eek:
    still got some bits to add.
