    Mirko, Amazing work with all this 3D printing technology. The wharf scene is great, and also on my list to scratch build, but the old fashioned way.

    Will keep following along.

    Welcome!

    Very niccce, very niccce! Yet another type of rapid prototyping.

    Love it! It is inspiring when people make the jump to new techniques and processes.

    Thanks John for correcting that (should have been BIS, not FSM) and sorry for the late reply. I have had a modeling time out for various reasons and have only recently restarted with a much lower amount of spare time for the hobby.

    I supplemented the Wharf model with a lighthouse. Modelled after the Fisgard Lighthouse in Colwood (Greater Victoria), BC https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisgar...isgard_002.jpg, I thought it might help to place the modeled region westward to British Columbia.

    Here is a rendering:



    And some Photos:

    Seaside:



    Looking from the cove:



    And the rear:



    And finally from the Repair Dock side (I rotated the lighthouse by 180 degrees).



    It is still unfinished, but I think for the moment it is recognizable.

    Next for this project would be the sail maker's warehouse to form the waterfront.

    Greetings and best wishes

    Outstanding work Mirco! I can certainly appreciate the effort required to learn and somewhat master the whole 'additive manufacturing' process. Building the models comes only after a great deal of learning 'how to do it'. I know it's definitely NOT as easy as it looks. My congratulations on taking on the challenge!

    Great start on Tidewater Wharf. I've had their HO version on my layout for the past 20 years. Full interior detail with lighting. One of my favorite structures. BTW..HO kit is from Builders-In-Scale. Curious to see how you complete this project.

    Sehr gut, Micro. I like your Blender renderings too.

    Thanks for the kind words. As soon as I get some sparetime, I will try to show the process by documenting my proceedings on one of the other buildings of the Tidewater Wharf diorama adaption.

    Here are two photos that might be better showing the model in comparison to - well - my hand.





    There are still a lot of details and some weathering that need to be done, but I hope to get to it soon and will keep you updated. For examle, I just noticed, I cheated with the insides of the large folding doors ;-)

    I'm very impressed with the buildings you've built, Mirco. I'm interest in hearing more about how you constructed them.

    Welcome Mirco.

    N-Scale hard to believe you have done such a wonderful job building those structures.

    Keep on posting I'm sure there a lot of guys who will be interested.
