In a shop full of little things you need to build miniature railway worlds I found a piece of cardboard with a print of water. It could be used as a pond or a canal, easy to cut every shape you want. There was no scale set to it so when I placed it in a maquette I built for preparing an exhibition it immediately adapted to the scale as if it showed true size. The scale of the maquette was 1:100 so if I wanted to see the waterpiece in true size I had to blow it up to 100 times the size of the piece I bought in the shop. The print had to be 1.50 x 2 metres. As this size did not fit a standard size, I printed it on 2 of the biggest standard sizes,called Abri poster. It is printed exactly as it is, with little mistakes that came with the original.
