Here's another update on the layout. It's coming along nicely. Since it's my first time making a big display with Plarail I'm already learning thing I want to change for next time, but definitely fun.

I like the body of water you made. Is that dark blue vinyl?

Bob, that looks awesome...almost like you have had years of experience building Layouts. Anxious to see the final setup in action but if you are like most of us you will be tweeking and fiddling with it until it becomes time to take it down.

So true, I will be tinkering with it all the way until it comes down. I know i sonds a bit silly but i was so excited the other day when a package arrive that I ordered on Amazon. It was that little side station that has a bell in it that goes off when the cars rollover it. It was fun because other than a set of track adapter pieces that I bought, this was my first 'new' item purchase. Sometimes the smallest things amuse me.

The water is a piece of fabric that I got at Hobby Lobby. It looks much better in person than how it comes out in the photos. The funny thing is, the only way I can describe it is that it looks like the kind of fabric you would use to make a Wonder Woman costume. Very unique and came in several colors.

That helps a lot! Fortunately (I guess), I used to work at my local Hobby Lobby, so I know my way around the store pretty well and I could probably find the fabric if they still have it. Modeling water for Plarail layouts has proven to be daunting for me.
