Nice work; I saw a lot of copper patina back when I was commuting on Boston's old Elevated - most of the stations were sheathed in it, and yours matches my memories & pictures.

Thanks James!I think back in the day copper was used much more often on large structures like this one, then it is today because of the cost factor.

Fantastic work, Greg. Will there be an HO scale version of Pete to go on the pier?

I certainly hope not, although I seem to remember a figure that would fit nicely. Short, overfed guy with a shiny cranium and white hair wearing a suit and tie....

The younger, tall, buff version is preferred here; I get the Old Guy in the mirror every day....

I'm tuned in as always Greg! Will sure be a wonderful build and intriguing to follow and also hear (I hope!).

Really nice build and finishing work Greg. As for Ron's comment, on days you plan on displaying it just hide a can of sardines under the display, LOL. You could also get a spray bottle with salty water to recreate the sea spray. This might all be just a little too much for the AVERAGE VIEWER!! Will definitely be following along on the rest of this build. Pat

Thank you David,Jeff,Pete & Håkan for your posts!

Jeff,I like that idea of having Pete somewhere on his pier.
Only problem is,then I will have to do miniatures of Bob & Dallas,and so on.
It would kinda be like a wheres Waldo book,trying to spot them somewhere at Magoun Pier.

Pete, you'd better send me a photo of your younger self then.

Håkan,I never thought adding sound would be so incredible.
I even find myself listening to it,while I'm working on it.
Really gets you in the mood for waterfront modeling
Though my wife Adi, does not like the sounds of seagulls coming from our basement.

FANTASTIC !!!!

Greg, Wow, I see a Best-of-Show model emerging. Thanks for the heads-up. I have subscribed to
this thread and read it from start to finish.

It will make a proud berth for the SS SANTOS and I am extremely pleased that that is where
she shall be. Having that magic shop close be is a good feeling too.

Can't wait to see your progress.

Bob

PS I think I have that same sound system where Sophie lives on my railroad.

Thanks Pat!
Yes a tin of sardines hidden under this display would certainly give fishy odours to the Pier.
Hey! This could be the next big thing in modeling!
"Smells Like" you just plug it in,and it gives you the appropriate scents for the scene you are modeling.
Just don't buy the pig farm one

Yes we needed a suitable location for the S.S.SANTOS to tie up too,and Magoun Pier makes just the place to do so.
I almost felt like I was modeling in your scale, this terminal is so big.
I think all of my tribute builds, will be happy to be all together here in one place.
