    Hi All, A few changes :D The thick piece of DW in the front.?

    Was chatting to friends. Current thinking it too big :)

    Well its gone and I changed it to this. I did not like the rock placement so had a fiddle with them too ;)

    The new scape looks like it has more height to it. I think they both have nice quality's about them but the first one you did is my favorite, But im sure other people might feel differently. You have a tough choice now lol :p:D

    Tough choice was made last night I cut it off:eek::DReplace it with the thinner bit. It opens up that space the thick bit was too in your face at the front of the scape ;)

    Gary its not uncommon to cut pieces of DW and relocate them in a more suitable location but, you have to know what you are doing it can be very difficult to put it back.

    Nice setup you have there Roy. I didn't realise you was doing another scape or is that there for a future project?

    That looks like you are doing something totally different this time, is it going to be entered in any competitions?
