I have been building the Shipyard at Foss Landing kit for a few weeks now in a video journal on Youtube. I pulled a few photos to share here. Maybe I made them too big at 1280 wide, I'll do 1024 next time. Hope you find something useful in my journal ramblings.

[One and only gripe on this kit, ok I have 2] I built the boat, the idea of numbering parts on the sprue, needs work. Numbering parts needs to be redundant. I have seen too many kits that make it part of the process to destroy the documentation of numbering order.


I believe I have two ribs out of order, looks good to me. I stained the wood with Alcohol and acrylic paint wash, my new favorite technique


I built a new workbench out in the mud room. Late summer gets hot here in the great lakes region, and I refuse to use an AC unit (what did you do when you were a kid?) don't need it. But a nice alt work bench is a nice addition.


Lately I have been more interested in designing how diorama's are setup then how the structures are built. So I am still not kit-bashing kits, I fall in love with the structures when I buy the kits. But I am kit-bashing the scenic placement and geographical location. So I am going to make a temp base for the structure to try and make each structure separately and at the end fit them all together the way it fits into the layout plan.

Ron,

Despite your reservations, you are doing a good job assembling etc. Looks weather-beaten and weather-worn. Your finishes look really good, especially the roof.

Mike

My criticisms are meant to be constructive, I hope I wrote it correctly. I sometimes look like I am on the attack when I am simply distracted with trying to write my thoughts.
