Are you sure this isn't 1:1, because I'd like to poke around inside the shed to see what other treasures are within. Tell me again how you modeled individual leaves on that shrub and got algae to grown on the high tide mark. Great modeling. There is not much here to identify it as a small scale model.
Thanks. The leaves on the small trees are Woodland Scenics "coarse grass" and the high tide mark, which actually isn't done yet (needs some mussels) is just a light wash and the rest is pastels. Now I'm afraid to keep going on this thing for fear the rest of it won't come out as satisfactory as what I've completed so far.
Photos #24 and 25 are the BlueJacket lobster boat before the water has been added. Photos #26 through 33 are more completed sections of the diorama. It has been said that a diorama is never finished and I believe this is true, there's much more I want to do. I learned that the Woodland Scenics Realistic Water cannot be manipulated to form wakes/waves and you need to use the "Water Effects" for this. I put some 5 min. epoxy where you see any water disturances. I never did complete any new vehicles for the dio but pulled a few older pieces out. pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/stryper50/album?.dir=/4ce5&urlhint=actn,del%3as,1%3af,0
It is so nicely done that at most of the photos it looks like pictures of the real thing. The boat 'cutting' the water,the details around it and tree effect is superb (that is the word that comes to my mind). Nice vehicle rendition as well. Greatly done,A+++++.

A very dramatic change of pace now. I am working on a 100 ton lowbed beam trailer for the new First Gear IH TD 25 dozer (a really beautiful 1/87 model) . I have started with the Sheepscot pewter kit and added styrene flanges to represent the I-beam construction, checker plate walkways, D rings and D.Aust wheels on the jeep dolly and Roco tires on Herpa rims for the rear axle frame. (pictures #14 through 17, just click on "next") pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/stryper50/detail?.dir=d798&.dnm=3014re2.jpg&.src=ph This is for a very special project that I really can't comment on further except to say that I have never been as excited about one as much before. (don't you love a mystery?)
