Thank you very much, Troels!
I can only dream to have a layout as beautiful as your Coast Line R.R. has turned out.
I hope my small beginning here, will lead me down that path in the future.

You are way too modest and kind Greg! Glad to see you used the extra heavy Liquitex gel... my favorite :)

Thanks for your kind words Troels, Ted & Rich!
Took a little photography break this afternoon in my cool basement here.
Looks like 2016 is going to be the warmest year on records.
I placed the R.A.SANTOS in the water by the pier, and she's sitting nice and flat in her new waters.
I also drilled a hole into the Magic Water, so I could pass her electrical cord down through the water and light her up again.





I also took a night pic of the street scene, looking over the fence out in front of the pier.





I made 2 flag poles for each end of the terminal building.
And hoisted 2 red Ensigns, Canada's original flag, and also where I get my handle"Ensign" that I use here on the forum.
Here is another view of the terminal building with the new water out front.

Looks great Greg, but I have to squint to see the flag on top of the building...

Any chance we can see those in some "daylight"?

Carl, I took one, but I did not post it.
I used a small hollow brass tube, with a smaller brass wire soldered to it to tie the rope off.
And a push pin with a gold ball on the end for the top of the pole.
The flag is paper, folded and glued back to back with the thread inside it.

Very good Frank!

Though they just changed the words to it again.

Yes we can't use "sons" anymore.
The newest version is "in all of us command"
Our federal government has changed it a couple of times now, I think.
I'm not certain if I could sing it now, with all the new changes.
I still sing it the way I learned it, back in grade one.
The first half in English & the second half in French.
Back when we also said the Lord's prayer after singing the anthem!
They changed that Too!

Yes Greg the "government" seems to be getting in the "peoples" way these days, same as in the US. Oops, I'm probably getting censored at this very moment.

Greg,
Fantastic night shots...a superb piece of modeling with day or night photos.

I agree with Troels, you are way too modest.
This build with the complexity, detail and architectural beauty raises you to the highest achievement level.

Soak in the accolades, you deserve it.

Thanks Dave!
It's just something that I really enjoy doing!
If I inspire someone, to make something using their hands & imagination, then that's even better!
