    :eek: This one will have tons of pictures so I won't say to much about it. It is scratch built and Brody's is from those spare walls again. I hope you enjoy it and give me some feed back on this because I am rather new at pier scenes. Let's get started.

    That little scene has more going on in it than most layouts in their entirty.:wave: Other than replacing the carpet with "water", I can't suggest anything.:D I can, however, comment, that this is one detailed scene that is typical of what you do, and you should be proud of it..:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:.

    I enjoy it whenever you post pictures of your work, so please don't stop....:D:D

    Maginificent as always Jim. Looks to me like you are an expert at pier scenes.
    The placing of the LPBs and other details gives a very natural look to the scene. Great modelling friend.

    Fabulous as usual Jim. More piles needed maybe? i.e. not just around the edges. "Beyound"?? :eek:

    Can you show us more of the ships hanging around in the first photo?

    Jim,
    That is a show piece! I'm amazed by all of the interesting elements you've included in a compact space! I can imagine visitors walking arouind it and noticing new things with each change of viewing angle. Very neat! I've always admired your watercraft too.
