        Very nice Troels. Frederic is right, with a little scenery it would be hard to tell if this was a model or reality.

          Troels,

          Another fantastic creation. The red roof adds a little splash of color without being overpowering. Nicely done.

              Troels, your little depot turned out really nice. the red roof looks right in with the weathered white and green base. I will have to look into resin casting, looks like a good solution to repetative building elements like the braces. Is it hard to do?

                Tom S, you're welcome! I'll try to find a sitting, parka-clad LP figure for the platform!

                Jim, the resin casting and RTV mould making is extremely easy, fun and rewarding! Have a go!

                I have made the wooden platform for the station, with a space reserved for a small freight shed. Balsa planking (cut from sheet in the Karl A. fashion)on masonite. This is also a test for the great Cranberry Wharf deck. I painted/washed it black in acrylics first, and drybrushed all kinds of colors on. I'm looking for the spring coloring that I've seen on the many wooden wharves and piers in the ten liveaboard years... the moist, quite slippery aged wood, before the summer sun bleaches and dries it out.

                  What brand did you use?

                  Nice platform, the color is beautiful, once again.

                    Very nice station, the volume 2 of this saga seems to be as amasing as the vol.1!!!

                      Troels,Very nice platform, it does have a good color for the time of year you are portraying.

                        I have really enjoyed looking at your stunning layout over the '09 period. So inspirational, and inventive. Goes to show you don't need to spend a fortune to have a world class layout. Thanks for all the great pictures and detailed instructions & info. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with next year. Your oceans are the best I've ever seen.

                            Troels,

                            I love the little station! The red roof looks great and does indeed add a nice splash of color. I saw a small pump house on a lake the other day which had a red slate roof. The color was amazingly uniform with not much in the way of different shades, or even any grime, mildew, stains, etc. Do you have a photo of a red roof with the nice red color variety your model has, or is this a look that you were trying to catch from your mind's eye? It looks wonderful either way! I plan to try the technique myself and will post a photo if I am happy with it. What camera do you use?

                              Eh, ben…la voila! C’est pas toujours le cas ou l’on doit faire ses commandes a l’etranger.

                                New forum member but longtime follower of your thread - you've heard it 1000 times- excellent work. I especially appreciate your use of available, and many times, inexpensive, materials. Too many fellow modelers I know drop everything to wait for a part or specific material that is backordered (including myself sometimes) - they should take a lesson from you in that with some plaster, resin, wood, foam, paper, paints, and a few basic window/door castings you can build anything, and build it exceptionally well. I do have one question- with the balsa planking - did you apply the wash to bare wood first, or paint it then wash? From a fellow sailor and boat bum - the dock is spot on that damp spring look (actually fall and winter too for that matter)
