Outstanding work!! Man I love the way you carved and painted the concrete. We will have to talk sometime soon about the paint job, I want to know exactly how you did that!

And then the lighting . . . holy-freak-o-lee!!

Wow, the overall lighting of the scene is superb. Time to hunt down some of these lights.

Greg, all I can say is the Magoun Pier is one good looking model. I guess a few power lines would be ok.

I love the B&W photo. I can feel the fog rolling in. Looks very similar to San Francisco minus the cranes. O' so cold.

Hi everyone, just returned from a few days up at our cottage, and it's wonderful to return and read everyone's posts!

Bob, that rigging on the SANTOS will be the next thing I do!

Pete, I would hope that your hydro is all back to normal by now.

Mark, it always nice to hear from you, and also glad you like my photography.

Robert, I can explain to you what I did, I'm just not certain I could repeat the results.

Jeff, I'm glad that you like the lighting, and best of luck with finding those LED's.

Frank, I'm trying hard to keep up with the quality modeling shown on your Wrecker's Reef!
And regarding that photo you posted, could you imagine having to try and fix something in that ball of spaghetti.

Frank, I sometimes think B&W photo's work way better at creating a mood in a scene.

Alan, your night photography of your models, is always inspiring to me!


Thanks again everyone!
Greg

Greg,

Thanks for the kind words re the power/hydro issues. My power came back about 48 hours into the fight, and most of the rest of the area was on three days later. That's the triage part. As things get cleared up, there will be more repairs, installations and so on to "do it right."

Of course, some of us wonder why they don't just bury the stuff and be done with it!

This pier scene is Eye Candy of the first order. Many thanks for sharing it with us!

Hey Pete, thanks for your kind words!
And glad to read that your power is back on!
I agree with you about placing power & communication lines underground.
With climate change taking hold, we can only expect to see more & more extreme weather events in the future.
Thus placing fragile infrastructure(Like power & communication lines) at increasing risk of being continually damaged.

On a happier note, here is a beautiful sunset photo that I took up at our cottage last night.

Hi everyone, I've been working on the rigging for the R.A.SANTOS, to finally finish that bit of detailing off.
I'm still not finished with that yet, sorry Bob.
I will be soon though!
I have also been working at having a proper pier to tie her (SANTOS) up too.
So I added the mooring bits all around the pier.
Along with a 6" x 12" guard rail around the top.
To help prevent stuff from rolling off the pier and into the water.
Also a 3" x 12" fender rail below the guard rail to keep ship hulls from rubbing the metal retaining walls.
I also glued into place all of the little brass ladders coming from the water and up the walls of the pier.
I made up those bumpers on the corners of the pier using tire castings and dowels.
I think I will cap them off with some copper, and maybe even a marker light on the taller pile.
And the track bumpers, I like the ones used for the traveling cranes.
They remind me of a dorsal fins.




And I built another quick little Sylvan kit to add to this scene.
This resin barge, will give another commodity for Magoun pier to handle.
I then needed to build a clam digger for use on one of the cranes.
And I've started to weather and rig up all of the traveling cranes.





And that's what I've been quietly working on.
Hope to post photo's of a fully rigged SANTOS soon!

Thanks for having a look!
Greg

Greg, this is looking even more fantabulous!

Don't let Frank's layout wiring photo influence you-- that is on another continent, and it probably predates DCC anyway.

Keep the motivational photos coming! Please!

And a very nice sunset there, to boot, Sir!

We just had one that was full of reds and purples and oranges and yellows and l was so engrossed in watching it progress that I forgot to take the picture!
