Nice photos again, Karl. I think it won't be long before I finally tackle my own O Shelby's. You've set up very high standards. They're going to motivate me to do my best.

Let me congratulate you, Karl, for this great scene. The building is wonderfully painted and weathered, the scenery around it is nice but its sober composition lets the building occupy the true center of the scene. An outstanding diorama.

The second boat, for the shoreline. I will be replacing the original boat with an 'upgraded version' shortly.



Cabin test fit before wiring and lighting was installed.

Wonderful work Karl, the choice of colors and the attention to detail is really amazing, some great trees and a believable vegetation make for a very realistic and interesting diorama, looking forward to further updates.

Incredible modeling Karl.

This is scratch built in O ???

The boats are awesome. Great detail of cabin interior, and the open cargo/fish hatch is a dynamite detail. How did you build those boats?

KarlS,

Very nice build and diorama. I've started mine, but it has been a fit of starts and stops.

Regards,

Great new shots, Karl. The new boat is beautiful and the cabin details are a fine plus.
How did you make the signs on the bait and tackle shop? (those we see in your first pics, on the high wall?)

Hi:

Looks like it might be a pretty large model. The HO one takes up a fair amount of space. I like O-Scale but it's just to big and takes up so much space. Anyway looks good.
