I've had a few problems with the base for my diorama. I think I got most of them worked out now.

I added some yellow and blue to the water so it didn't look quiet as brown. After more stupid problems I got the sand in and the bridge painted. I haven't decided on all the elements that I'm going to use yet. I'm going to start on the grass and other green stuff and make some trees next.

Here's a preview of how it looks with the tugs.

The diorama is coming along. The tugs are great. The water is very good, and the whole scene is fantastic:apl::apl:

WOW! Dave.....your tugs are simply amazing! Love that rust!

I like the way you are mounting your non-waterline boats in cavities in the bottom of the harbor. Will you permanently seal the boats in place with the "water", or will they be removable?

Thanks.
I'm going to seal the tugs to the base with clear silicone before I pour the water. They're not pushed down all the way in the picture. It's a really tight fit in the plaster because of the rudders and props.

It was suggested (on another forum) that my road shouldn't have seams in it and the color wasn't right. Also, that the sides of the bridge are to heavy looking. I thought about just making a new bridge rather then rebuild the old one, but I figured I'd fix the road first. Thing got really screwed up and the paint peeled off and it messed up the plaster. I'm not sure how to fix it. I'm pretty sure if I try it's going to end up messing up other stuff. I'm seriously considering trashing the whole diorama.
