Neat On30 micro layout, love the bar idea! Nice board walk with the tracks set-in as well.

Larry don't know where you come with these ideas but this one sounds like a fun build. Will be stopping by from time to time to see how this progresses.

Scott Funtown pier went by the wayside or I should say by the oceanside.

Sandy took that and the kiddie rides way out to sea. it has never been built back up. He now has a private beach you have to pay to get on!!

Thanks all. I am gathering details to take with me to the beach to paint. Nothing better than looking at the real thing to color match. Chairs are from a WW2 German kit. A bathtub for beer from doll house parts. I need to figure out how to make scale ice, I have beer bottles. Palm trees are also a kit and will be painted based on the palm trees at the beach.




I have a lot of details I thought I would never use that will get tossed at this current day layout. It should get interesting.

possible crushed/bag ice:
very tiny retro reflective glass beads that they spread on roads when the paint the stripes (I have some) it can look like finely crushed ice

tiny bits chipped from the edges of a scrap of clear plexiglas or chopped off clear styrene sprue

tiny bits of broken glass tumbled in a rock polisher until you don't get a handful of glass slivers working with them (or put in a plastic bottle with soume small pebbles and water and shake, roll around or vibrate), pour through fine mesh, pick out the rocks

take a clear plastic cover from some product packaging and cut small pieces, put them on a cutting board and chop away with a chef's knife until the right size

then pour some clear acrylic varnish into a small container, add your choice of ice (sorry James: stirrred, not shaken), pour some in the top and chill your beer bottles

Thanks all for looking in and for the ice cube suggestions. A little progress. Finished the board want. Cutting the wood for between the tracks on a 6" curve was a PITA.

Um.
It is a vacation spot for my ON30 friends to visit. It will have Boardwalks, beaches, bars and trains.
It will be sound equipped with appropriate Jimmy Buffett tunes. Maybe wave sounds.
I understand it will also be a popular spot to meet SI swimsuit models or other attractive ladies in need of a vacation.
The ON30 male figures will be 3d prints of real ON30 guys. Or Figures I find that look like them.
Its only purpose is like an amusement ride but may also have a bar car. Who knows where I will go. It is so small that it will take little time to build.
