Looks terrific Greg.

Love the lighting pictures you take.

And why do they always have to change things??
I guess they couldn't remember the old words so they made new ones up!

Hi Greg,

That is absolutely fantastic! If only we could see it in real life. I know you have packed in a lot more detail than the photos show.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Thanks! Jerry & Jeff.

Jerry, I like my night photos the best, because they hide all the mess in my background here.

Jeff, your always welcome to come and visit anytime!

Here is a photo showing the R.A.SANTOS now floating in the water next to the pier.
I need to make up some mooring ropes now to tie her her up properly to the pier.

That's sounding kinda kinky!




Greg

Greg,
This is by far absolutely stunning! I like night shots over daylight ones. Looks like every part ties together perfectly.

Thanks very much! Ted, Rich & Bob, for your posts.

Ted, even if this pier scene was twice as large, I still couldn't fit a tribute to all the members here that inspire us, and make this forum a great place.
Those will have to wait for the rest of my layout in the future.

Rich, I like the night photo's best too!
They look more life like to me for some reason.

Bob, it's great to have the SANTOS finally in the water!

The building has got to be one of the largest and best made structures in HO. Congrats Greg, looks ship shape with the Santos docked along-side. You better tier her up before she slides out into deep water.

Looking good, Greg!

Get the lines over the side! Where are the longshoremen?? The Santos has a schedule to keep! Chop, chop!

Again, very nicely done.

Thanks! Frank, Bill & Pete, for your nice posts.

Frank & Pete, that will be my next task, to get her tied up along the pier.

Bill, the sky was my limit, but you saved me again with your nicely rendered improvements.
A big THANKS for taking the time to do this for me!
It's a good thing the SANTOS is coming into port, those dark clouds on the horizon look like a storm is brewing.

Greg

Hi everyone, Magoun pier had a special visiting guest this past Friday.
Forum member (Carl B)Carl Alessi stopped by for a friendly visit at the pier.
Carl & I, have been conversing here on the forums for a what seems like a long long time.
Most of you know Carl from his wonderful builds that he conducts right here on the forums, for all our viewing pleasure.
Well it just happens Carl had to come up to Canada to cover a golfing event that was not to far from my place here, so we arranged a time to get together to finally meet in person.
It was a pleasure to finally get together with Carl, and show him my modelling world that's currently spread over my house.
I took the opportunity to snap a photo of him standing behind my tribute build to him, at Magoun pier.(Alessi Lighthouse Constructors & Refitters)
We then went out and had a nice dinner, and some good conversations.
It was great fun! And nice to finally see a face, that goes with the name.
And get to know Carl a little better. I only wish that we had more time together than we did.
My youngest daughter wanted to get up too our cottage, for the long holiday weekend.
And Dad(me) was her ride up there.
So I just wanted to let you know about this special visit from Carl, and to thank him for taking the time to come and visit with me,I really enjoyed our short time together!!
I hope we can do it again in the future!

Greg,

Beautiful photo. And you centered your camera on the most important part of the hobby: the people behind the models.

Mike
