  • The other stairs are now done. Only two days for these, as I knew what I was doing this time.

    • Thanks Larry. Now the Forum is finally back online, I can get back to this build.
      I didn't do much on the build while we were on a 3 month hiatus, as I want to keep documenting all the build here.
      So I have just been painting lots of figures and detail parts. I have been looking at lots of figure painting tutorials on Youtube, some hit & miss.
      But I did find a couple of excellent ones for 1/35 military modelling. Bigger scale but basics are the same, so I've really improved my figure painting, and lots of great weathering info too.

      I have re-done the above figures since those last pictures. Will post some pics soon.

          • Thanks Carl & Louis for dropping by. I'll try an take some pics this week so I can do a proper update. Still haven't got anywhere with the starting the diorama base, but I've worked out the size to fit the structure and all the boats in.
            Just too busy with work at the moment. ​​​And unfortunately our state is back in Covid lockdown again. This is our 6th time, so nothing is open, and back to a 5km limit.

            But at least now the forums back, I feel enthused again. Good to see so many of the forums members returning.
            Regards Rob

            • Here's an update of what i've been doing the last 3 months while the forum was down. Lots of figure painting, but I'll post those later.
              I made up the awning over the front lower deck.. Here's the corrugated roof.

                • Here's how the front awning, and jib crane look in place. And a few detail parts and figures spread around. None of these are permanent as yet.

                  • Looks great Rob. Had to go back to page one to see what scale it is. If you only look at the top 1/4 of the last picture you'd swear it was a 1:1 building and not a 1:48.

                      • Great jib crane, fine looing piece of equipment and the weathering on your corrugated roofing is fantastic as well.

                        • Rob,

                          I'm very impressed. The construction and your finishes on the jib crane and awning are excellent.

                          • Nice job on the crane.
                            Not just the construction, but the painting and weathering too.
