I'm pretty new at detail work, but I've always wanted an ice rink on my layout. I decided to start with a small rink to try out an idea I had with using gloss paint and matte finish to simulate the zamboni resurfacing the ice. The effect isn't as dramatic as I hoped, but this is the first attempt. The straight lines were easy of course, but I'm stumped on how to get the circular stripes on the ice for my next attempt. Ultimately I'd like to have a larger (not quite scale) covered outdoor rink, complete with boards and "glass", lighted with players, but I also cannot find any O scale hockey figures. Closest I could get was painting a Habs jersey on my zamboni driver. Any comments or ideas are greatly appreciated.
