You make it look so easy. Nice work.

That look like it would hold a truck or two. Nice job.

This is a great project.  I encourage everyone to look at Dave's photo's that he has posted in his link.  True insipration for all of us!

I made some progress on the new base for my tugboats.

I still have a few more things to do before I can pour the water.

I should have the trees that I made mounted tomorrow.

I have to do some work on the barnacles.

Underway now. the bridge looks good ( Bit rusty ) has character.

Have you seen the thread on WS water. don't know what you intend using for your water, but worth a look.

I saw the video thing on the WS web site. I got a bottle of the water and the water effects a while ago. I was going to use Smooth-On clear resin but it generates a lot of heat when it kicks. I was afraid it might get hot enough to mess up the boats.

I made a little more progress.

The tugs are now mounted with silicone.

I still need to do a few more details before I can pour the water.

Great progress there Dave. Nice looking work as well. Is this the one you took apart or a new base altogether ? Either way it looks real sharp!!!! :apl:

I made whole new base. The other one was starting to look pretty rough from doing things over so many times. I still have the first one. I might try and save part of it for my next diorama.
