I have been in China on business as of late. Sorry about not responding. To add the planking to the boat under repair in the boat repair dio I used very thin wood and Acc (gel type). Before I completed the task I had glued my fingers together several time.

Started adding a few details parts to the various wharf stuctures under construction.


this structure, has small bags & very small barrels, ready to be loaded onto small boats.
What type of product / industry would this small business be producing .
Your thoughts and a listing would be appreciated, so I can think of signs to attach.

Dunny here, from memory on the sign for Shelby's Marine they sell Pitch, Paulins, Rope, Nets, Oakum, Oars, Anchors, Flags, Traps, Floats, Markers and Bouys. I suppose you could also add Sails, Masts, Buckeyes, Hooks and tackleblocks and Turnbuckles.
As you can tell I'm a waterfront sort of guy.
A good name would be Dunny's Chandlery

Dave, I thought Brian glued your fingers together so you wouldn't have a diorama ready for Durango. That Nolan guy is a real schemer.

Well, it has been a struggle and a long time finishing but I have finally completed my Tidewater Wharf. It has been a work in progress for over a year and it took retirement for me to finally finished it. I plan on this diorama being a focal point of the water front area of a new layout that I am beginning. After retirement, I promised myself this would be the first "shelf orphan" that I would finish. Now, hopefully, I can concentrate on building the layout.

Since I have seen many requests for photos of the Tidewater Wharf by BIS in the past, I hope these pictures want be overkill. After all, as you might image, I am very happy with the way it turned out.

First welcome to the world of being retired.

Great pictures of a very well done diorama.
As blue is my favorite color I really like how the main building came out.
What paint color did you use?

I like the third picture down which is the back side and the contrast between the blue building and the red brick plus the excellent landscaping makes this a very nice angle to view the structures.

Looking forward to your development of a waterfront on your new layout.

Bud, that is a great build you've done. I really like this structure. Also, seeing how you built up the foam base to allow for the elevation change.

Absolutely outstanding diorama of the Tidewater Wharf. Incredibly crafted in each and every detail and it all hangs together in a very satisfying composite. Great job on the seawalls, pilings and pile clusters. Super job on the rocks below the lighthouse, with the low tide exposing the sea moss. Each side of the model, as well as the spaces contained between the buildings, is a new experience. And the myriad roofs are a real study in textures and weathering. I love it all.

I managed to get this BIS kit, as well as its companion, the Waterfront, from EBay, after patiently waiting out numerous overbid auctions over several months. Your rendition has really inspired me to make time to build them, either separately or ensemble, as soon as I can clear out a good patch of time.

And welcome to the retired world where I am presently starting my 4th year, and I love it. Just completing this kit as your 1st plan for your free time, hopefully will inspire you to keep at it, as you are extremely talented.
