The lower connections of each level are in the kit, I just drilled them out and made them stronger. The upper ones are simply 1mm evergreen strip.

Over the past week I have mainly been playing with water.
I cut out some watercolor paper and glued it to the base.

Unlike some others here on this board I chose to not seal the watercolor paper with glue at first but I put basic (department store) blue acrylic paint on it in two layers. The paper would start deforming and forming blisters as a result and by selectively glueing some of the paper back to the base I could get the wave pattern I want to see here. Once everything was thoroughly dry (48hrs) I added a top layer of acrylic gel and screwed Victorieuse on its base.

Next step: boats and fittings.
