Thanks! Jeff, Ed & Bill, for your posts.
You guys can go for a walk around my Magoun pier anytime, no shrinking down required, but that would be neat!

Those B&W shots look very realistic.

Thanks! Frank.
I agree, black & white photos just look more real for some reason.

Greg, Being a huge fan of b&w movies and photography, I believe you focus on the details more because the color is not there to distract you. You never say, wow look at those beautiful colors. You say look at that beautiful detail.
Plus if well done (as yours is), one admires a the 50 shades of modeling.
Whatever, Greg, you are very impressive modeler, who makes a strong statement in color or black and white.
Excuse me if I should not have said this, Alan Hubbard (nextceo) has some very cool pictures in sepia.
I have some cool baby pictures on a rug, but I doubt if there is any interest.
Greg, Thank you kindly for sharing, and please excuse my nonsense.

Thanks very much! Rich & Ed, for your very kind words.

Ed, I like your theory as to why black & white photos look more realistic than colour ones.
I just think they suit my time period better, you would expect to see b&w photos from the 30's.

Greg, You are correct. Most of the b&w movies and photos are from that period. Bur even today it works at times better than color. New TV show The Alienist, has nice color. Also Westwood, Duece, The Chi, Fargo, have a nice warm softness to them.
When one models as good as you, it can be pink and and purple (two colors I like) and still be be visually perfect. It's like some people need a 3k suit to look good. Others two hundred will do.

I am starting the Sylvan Laker and wanted to inquire if your build of the SS SANTOS was recorded here?

Hi Frank, here is a link to the building of the R.A.SANTOS.
It really should be a part of this thread, if it's not already.

I hope my work shown here, can help you with your work ahead.
Best of luck with it!

Greg

Hi everyone, well the ice on the lakes has melted, and with the opening up of the waterways another season of shipping has begun.
Under the darkness of night Magoun pier had it's first new visitor of the season, slip in and tie up to the pier.




My latest tribute to forum member Bill Gill has now joined the cast at Magoun pier.
This is Fine Scale Miniatures "Pile driver" kit, and the most highly detailed model at Magoun pier.
Bill, loves his details, so I thought that this would make a very fitting tribute to him.





This coming Saturday, I will be once again taking part in our local "Double Headers" layout tour.
I also wanted something new to display this year, and Captain Bill and his crew have showed up just in time for this year's event.





I'm certain that this newest addition to my pier will bring a pile of smiles, to my layout visitors.

Greg

So that's what the pounding noise in my head is! I don't have a headache after all!

Nice job, Greg! Let's see her in the daylight, too!

Thanks, Pete! Take two aspirins and post me in the morning.
Maybe this will help you with that pounding.

Greg,

You know how to pile 'em on, don't you?

Very nice model. Lots of subtle weathering on the waterline, corrugated roof, replaced boards, rusty bits. Subtle humor also; took me at least two seconds to get this one, followed by a chuckle, rather than the usual one second and a groan.

Looks like a fun kit to build. The little steam engine looks to be exactly the size I'm looking for but I hate buying a whole kit for one detail.

Great job.

Mike
