Hi all,

This is my new Sn2 (but running on 9mm gauge track) project.
Waterfront scene in a small space, 1 X 2 ft. in size.

A couple of months ago I started building this layout. Then this had no name.
Last month the layout was named after the late Geoff Nott who gave me (still gives me) a thousand ideas.

Well, here are some pictures of the layout under construction.

Structures were temporally placed on the board.















Truss bridge















Tobacco shop










Railroad/steamship line ticket office is to be put between this tobacco shop and the brick building.





Boat shop















At first this structure was made as a mine building for my On30 layout.





Shoe repair shop




















Backdrop is curtain fabric.










To be continued....


Regards


Junior

Junior,
It is nice to see some of your fantastic modeling again. I like the detail inside the shoe repair store.

Thanks Martin,

I am referring also to your waterfront layouts.
The additional part of the boat shop was inspired by a structure that you built. ;)

Today I bought the latest issue of the Gazette, and I got many ideas from his "Smuggler's Cove" article.
The article is very impressive!!


Thanks Bernd,

Now I'm building structures for this layout.
Three or four structures are needed.
When they have completed I'd like to start building the wharf.

Please wait for the next update. ;)


Also thanks Larry, My old friend! :bg:

My On30 models are sleeping in the boxes...

By the way, opinions are always welcome.



Regards

Junior

Hi Junior,

Geoff would have been very impressed by your latest efforts.

More Smugglers Cove photos are at

http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=4108&forum_id=17&page=4

and there is is a link on the last page of this thread to Mario's photos of Geoff's work,

to provide additional inspiration (if any more is required).

Glad to see more of your excellent work!

The shot of just the window and door pieces-- are they commercial, or castings from molds that you have made?

Awaiting more,


Herb

Thanks for the kind comments.


Oztrainz,

Your and Mario's photos are very useful. Of course, I am referring to them. Thanks a lot!
Last month I sent some photos to Mario. And my models are here. http://www.modvid.com.au/html/body_junior_yamachi.html


Herb,

The window with fanlight is combination of two HO windows and fanlight portion of double door. I cut them and glue them together.
Storefront windows are Grandt Line O scale double-hung windows. And the door is 1 in 50th scale product for architectural modeling.


Dallas,

Yes, I'll keep on posting. ;)
Delighted to see your "Tony's Creek" project and looking forward to more ... :)


Dave,

This project was started in April as a small town with street-running trackage, not waterfront scene.
But, Geoff's "Smuggler's Cove" made it change.


Rod,

Yeah, very small space, really..... :w:
This is like a photo-taking diorama.
But, this is good size for making on a table. :bg:

I made each structure narrower than prototype for space-saving. Also, depth is shorter.

Regards, 

Junior
