It is always a
problem when one begins to animate the scenery of a model
railway. Some parts may move while others remain resolutely
frozen. One expects the viewer to suspend their critical
faculties and use their imagination. The waterfall gorge on
Cliffhanger was a case in point. The falls drop straight
into the sea which is portrayed, frozen, in a moment of
time. Why should the falls be any different? By rights, they
should be frozen too.
I felt that
this was perhaps an opportunity to push the boundaries again
and finally figured out how to do the job. The one thing
that absolutely does not work is real water as the stuff
will just not scale down. This is not the case if it is
reduced to very fine droplets, however.
