    this one is a closeup of one of the drydock cranes. The base is scratchbuilt, the middle section is kitbashed from parts of an HO scale conveyor, and the crane is a Bachmann rail crane.

    Great looking module. The crane looks like it really belongs on the dock even though it came from different parts.

    That's a perfect dockside building and the crane is excellent. Turn down the lights and add some fog and I see Bogey or Cagney walking out of the shadows! :) Can't wait to see more!

    Hey Pete, that's neat stuff. I like that "drydock" idea, and the building too. Where did you find the ship model? I've looked around and haven't found much of anything in that scale.

    The ship in the drydock is, or maybe was is more appropriate, Lindberg kit # 7310. I got this one in a "consignment sale".
    The one in the background is/was Revell #H-379, it also may be out of production.
    I started laying rails for the drydock cranes, and the SHS&D narrow gauge............If you hear anyone talking about hand laying code 40 rail.........get them medications quick!:D :D :D
    I'll post pics when I'm done, and sane enough to operate the camera!:eek: :eek: :D

    This kit, from GC Laser Innovations PO box 621, Genoa City WI. 53128, is #CM009, Country Market.(www.gclaserinnovations.com)
    I thought it would make an excellent tool issue shed at drydock#2.

    In this shot, I've closed in the "seaward"end of the drydock, and started the gate. The gate will require some additional structural additions, and handrails, before painting.

    I changed my mind about the launchway, opting for a more traditional way, vice the sideslip. Here, it's begining to take shape.

    High quality crane, I was playing with the idea of scratch building one, but decided against it since my plan for the layout changed... but now I'm inspired... uh-oh
