I am using the blue extruded foam board.I would like to make a pond and a river on it.know how to,but the water part,I don't know about.
I am thinking along the lines of using, ge 100% silscone sealant for the water.( I have a few tubes left from a remodel job at home here )
I am not sure about how it would work with the foam.would it melt the foam?
the flumes,well my layout is in a unused room,so I can open the window up a bit,brrrrr,nice and cold this weekend,here in upstate NY.

thanks
Ron

That product is what we used on a buddy's layout. I have another couple of friends whose layouts use the real thing with a reservoir and circulating pumps. I've not been brave enough to try that on my layout. Mine is modular and there may be a few seams, if you know what I mean. And last I heard, water and electricity don't mix. Maybe I'll build a module with water wit hno seams. Better get to the drawing board.

To water or not to water?

There is an aray of products out there for modeling water,but what to choose is another question. Here is something I tried and got real nice results.

Go to your local Michaels,or A.C. Moore craft store and pick up a couple bottles of a product called gallery glass,CLEAR. I think it's about $5 and some change for an 8oz. bottle. It is used for doing faux stained glass.But it works real well for water effect's.
Ok there's my 2 pennies.:D
