Woodlands senics E-Z water, basically glue pellets from the looks of it. Just melt and pour and then used a soldering iron once set to add ripples etc.

Cool, it looks great.  I've seen it in the past, but never had quite had a project in mind to use it.

What did you use as a frame to hold it 'in' the base?  Masking tape, tin-foil or something else?

Cheers,

Apologies for the delay Meirion

Minibits Palm trees come in little plastic tubs the base of which are the same diameter as the base of the model. So I made the base - pva, sand paint and static grass put it in the bottom of the tub then poured the 'water' over then quickly stuck the boat on top. Break the container off then tidy up the water with the soldering iron.

It took 2 attempts (and 2 bases) before I got it right. Even then I ended up with a large air bubble under the prow which had to be filled. Not an easy job.

That's okay Matt, thanks for the info.

It gives a really clean edge which other options might not do   Cool

Also good to know that cheap polypropylene can survive the heat Smiley
