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




Mike, thanks for your post! Glad to read that I got a chuckle instead of a groan!
This is a wonderful little kit, and the good news is, Jimmy Denigan over at www.railroadkits.com bought all of the master molds from George Sellios, and plans to sell the castings from George's kits.
So maybe you will be able to buy this steam engine on it's own soon.

Greg

Here is another image converted to B&W of the BILL GILL & SON barge tied up along side of the pier.

Greg, What can be said? Thank you!! I'm punless at the moment.
Hopefully the incessant pounding won't DRIVE you crazy.
A sister-in-lqw once watched a pile driver on a barge working on a small dock at someone's summer house.
She called it "Boom-A-Dollar" because every time it struck she thought the sound was telling homeowner another dollar was down the drain.

Bill,

Make that a twenty or more and she was probably correct!

Bill, I'm glad that you like it!
I'm also happy to have your new venture, as part of my pier.
The BILL GILL & SON marine service barge will be another one of my forum friends working at the pier.

is there a build thread for the piledriver or did you just slip this in?


the only mystery in life is...why did the kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Kevin, I'm sorry I missed your question.
Unfortunately no, I did not have time to do a build thread for this pile driver.
So I did, just slip this one in.

I served as Greg's 'wing man' this past Saturday for the layout tour.

Thought I'd post some close-ups of the layout.

Hey Rob, thanks for posting the pics, and also thanks for keeping things moving on the pier this past Saturday.
I could not have done it without you, it's nice to have modelling friends to help out, when you need them.
The day was alot of fun, and a great success because of your & Lance's help on the tour.

Greg
