That looks like it would work real well and it is like 4' x 3' (thats foot NOT inch) for like $6. I think that would work alot better for larger shots.

I have used the WS melting water pellets many times in stationary dioramas, there again it is real expensive. Once you melt it and it cools it is permanent and looks realistic. For modular sets the plastic sheets work perfectly.
