Jim, that's a really neat looking wall! I am truly impressed! The fact that you did it brick-by-brick is incredible! How many hours did that take you?

Hi Mike
you wrote
John, I got my July 2002 RMC back out last night and looked at that article again. I can see why it inspires you. It's interesting that Bob Bennett's inspiration came from Frary and Hayden's "Thatcher's Inlet" series. That was also a major inspiration for me. I still have those issues of RMC somewhere in my basement.

Back in the 80's (don't remember which year right now) the Gazette ran a 3-part series on another waterfront diorama. The photos in Bob Bennett's "Albion" diorama remind me of the Gazette article. I'll have to see if I can find the issues when I get home.


If you ever find your copy of these articles from the Gazette please let me know what issues they are so that I may try to get back issues if they are still available.
I will also try to get the RMC articles if these issues are available.

Jim
Your wall is outstanding.
All I can say is WOW!!!

Excellent looking wall Jim. Between yourself and Mike I guess I have my work cut out for me just trying to make mine look 1/2 as good.

I like your wall Jim. I agree, the pressures on. You & Mike have definitely raised the standard. [:-crazy]

I finished the signage today. I really like the dry transfer decals. They look great on the structures. It gives them a unique look. I started the windows. I hope to finish them tomorrow night.

John, the articles were what I remembered. (Now why does stuff like that stick with me after 20+ years, but I can't remember what someone - such as my wife - said to me last week? [:-crazy][:-banghead])

Anyway, Al Armitage's "Kemtron Waterfront Diorama" articles appeared in the May/June 87, July/Aug 87, and Sept/Oct 87 issues of the Gazette.

In Part 1, Al described the waterfront scene, including the wharf and the rooming house, cafe, and tobacconist's shop on a diorama he built for Kemtron Models. (The real purpose of the diorama was to photograph and advertise Kemtron's Shay loco.) Part 2 describes the Lodge Hall, and Part 3 describes how he built the Shipfitter's Store. All three articles have photographs and drawings.

Hi Mike
Thanks for the information.
What is the best way to contact the Gazette to see about ordering back issues. I found their address in the reading and research forum but wondered what was the best way to get these back issues.
Thanks again
