Thanks guys.

Sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward. So I removed all the sanded area where I've been working because the slope seemed too steep from water to the tracks in the back.. Have since replaced it and I like the flatter look. I've also added the beginnings of the concrete pads where the buildings will set having gotten rid of the ones I'd previously cast.

Seems like some trivial work but things were starting to bug me and I'm much more satisfied with the current look. Next steps will be to continue to build the bigger shed and color the concrete. Having trouble deciding whether to continue to scenic the area so I can test some techniques or to move to something else and come back.

I agree with your decision to go flatter. It looks much better and now has that flat earth feel you get at the shore. I'm enjoying your progress!

Thanks Arnold and I look forward to updates on the AnE once you've moved.

Have added some more detail to the final building and tried my hand at creating some clam shell piles using ballast. Also touched up the seawall which has taken a beating while I've been working on this area from me and our cats who apparently are Eastern Shore lovers.

Pictures below with the last 2 pictures a clamsmen's view as he brings his boat home.

Experimenting with making crab pots. I'll need a lot of them which is a bit daunting; a bit like trees for a northwest scheme railroad.

The stack is a photo that I pasted on a block and in the foreground is my first attempt at a scratch built pot. I think I'll combine using both techniques as it is a bit tedious making the individual wood versions.

Thanks Lynn.

I've added some more details; more clam traps and shell piles, 20' storage trailers, some sea grass, and jersey barriers. Have also leveled the areas where the two smaller structures sit.

I would like to add some more details but starting to get tired of the scene so next area will be behind the buildings and the track that sits directly behind this area.

I like how you've done the details. Crab pots are neat, as well as the piles. Your whole scene reminds me that I like seafood of all kinds, but I would not want to be out on the water, or even near the shore during a cold winter storm.

First started out staining some ties and painting rails then dug out the Grass Master from the back of the closet and have started some grass ground cover. Leaning toward late summer - a time I've not previously modeled. There will be a few trees in the back corner of this scene as the area transitions to inland. My last layout was set in winter so I'll be modeling full trees for the first time.

Last picture is, "Sunrise on the Eastern Shore." There's a window near the left end of my shelf and I awoke one morning to the sunrise highlighting the wharf.

Some more base scenery, grass, ballast and rail painting. Now moving onto a large dock area the will be the final waterside structure.

Dave, I have to agree with Mark that your water looks great. In fact, the entire area that you are working on is shaping up nicely.

We are actually staying in Exmore, VA tonight on our way north from Hilton Head. The bay was a bit angry today as we crossed the Bay Bridge.
