That looks really good Dale. Are you gonna have water in that scene too?
Really cool Dale. Widh we had a barge scene on the RGW.
Don't blame this Southerner Y'all
I used MDF board for the water base. To get a slight ripple effect, I watered down some drywall mud and dubbed it on the surface with a stiff bristle round paint brush. After it dried, I painted it a muddy brown color. To give it a wet look, I used gloss medium to the top.
the barge is open on the bottom, it will be attached to a smooth part of the MDF and then painted and weathered.so the ripples will be around the barge.
I’d post a picture but I worked all day and mowed this evening. It’s just after 9 PM and I too tired to climb the stairs. Picture tomorrow night I promise!

Thanks for coming by!
Looking great Dale!!!
Thank you Joe, we are getting there!
Envy level on the rise
That looks very convincing Dale, you about cant get too many layers of that gloss clear on that, If you can get to an art supply store, get some gloss gel and you can stab that stuff on your water scene to make even more ripples, or even small waves, sometimes it may take a week to dry LOL.
Please carry on buddy!
Love how that muddy water turned out Dale! Excellent
Thank you all very much!
Is that the style of hover barge
Something a little different. Remote switching with a GoPro. Engineer in another room with a monitor, throttle and radio. Brakeman riding the train with a radio. It was a blast.
Fun with model railroading!
This is fabulous. I can't wait to try something similar. Excellent work. M
You know Michael, you are welcome to come try it out sometime!
We'll have to do a home and home...
Interesting idea, I will speak to my IT expert about it. It would be interesting to try.
