Very nice progress but I continue to admire your water. In the second picture, it looks like you created waves crashing into the sea wall. Am I seeing that correctly? It sure looks good in that pic!

Nice work! That water looks great from every angle. (And the structures and the track are pretty impressive too -- I'm just catching up on this thread).

Thanks for the encouragement Working on a fishing shack that is taking more time than I would expect. Hope to have some pics this weekend.

Not much progress. This small building is coming along slowly and I'm hoping the looks improve as I move further along.

Basis for structure





Start of model

I've redone the front steps and cleaned up some other areas along with adding some color/weathering. A close up shots then pictures from the water and the dock.

Hi Dave,

Still following along. I like your water and color. Buildings and docks are coming along nicely. Amazing N scale!

A small nit-pick... the dock close up shows the pilings not quite making it into the water.

Are you planning an additional water gel layer to this area?

Thanks Carl. I'll have to fix that when I finish the water. I appreciate you following and your inputs

In addition to fine tuning the track work, I've built a very simple quonset hut similar to that in the Willis Wharf picture I've posted. I have one more building I'd like to finish before moving on to some other areas. Just trying to get the basic structures and footprint down and will come back another time to permanently place them and add detailing. There will be oyster shell piles and traps along with the normal waterside clutter.

I really like what you're doing here. The structures look great in any scale! It's the kind of realism we all strive for.

Lovely layout and spectacular water

Neil/Mike, thanks for the notes.

Have begun the warehouse which will be the last structure in this area of the layout.

I cast a plaster pad and built the structure of styrene and corrugated metal.

It's starting to look like the eastern shore.
