This one will be basically an oval with two fake switches. Main purpose; Test track and photo background, and lots of fun...:smile:

First a piece of plywood, then ...

The plants on the pictures are plastic ones which I found very cheap at my local gardening centre. They are only placed for the photos, later on they will be glued in groups close to bridges and there the water moves slowly.

more to come....
