One question has been answered in that you were wondering if the stone wall would show up when everything was assembled.
The wall is definitely an attention grabber.[:-bigeyes][:-party]
What is a cribbed wall. I have heard of a lot of different types of walls but this one is new to me.




It's horizontal planking with a verticle pole every four foot or so. They are generally used on farms for corn storage in the barns thus the name "corn crib".

Thanks Rusty
I learn something new every day here.[:-graduate]
Weird as it may seem that is exactly the wall I used on my diorama base as I have no shoreline. I have just a wall between dry land and the water.
Mine is made with 12" x 12" scale horizontal planks but my vertical posts are about 7 scale feet apart.
Now I know what type of wall I have.[:-thumbu]

Thanks, guys.

I decided to stay with the stone wall theme, so I set a couple of pink foam "forms" in place and poured the plaster for a wall across the shoreline. I pulled the forms off a while ago and will be carving rocks this evening. I left some of the undercut shoreline to the left of where the dock will be positioned because I want to model the vegetation and brush that typically grows along river banks in the Ozarks.

Wow Mike! As always beautiful work. I really enjoy seeing photographs of my kits and especially enjoy when they have been altered. It is so neat to be able to see what other imaginations are doing with the kits materials!

I also really like Harry's launch company. The shingles and coloration are terrific, I especially like the doors Harry!

Keep up the inspiring work and thanks for all the Forums comments and photos.

Brett.

Harry,

Sorry I had missed your pics. Great looking structure . I like the staining and color of the walls on the Launch Company. Thanks for the pics.
