Hello everyone.

The first two small finished buildings

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

I also took pictures of the items that took my head for 2 good months. Namely aging wagons, vehicles, small cranes and all the small elements that make the loads of vehicles and wagons.

In first the railway material. During the previous diorama, I was sorry to see that the cars and loco have a bit of a term in terms of effects. So I took a lot of time to get a result a little more fun.

Image

The locos were designed by Jean (Migou31) who provided me with these boards. A big thank you to Jean.

Image

Image

Now the small cranes that will be used to unload the cars.

Image

Image

Image

The fleet of vehicles. I favor open vehicles with their loads. I think it gives a lot more life to the diorama. As on the cars the realization of the patina took me a lot of time.

All the vehicles come from L'Arsenal (http://www.larsenal.com/PBSCCatalog.asp) And quite a few of them were offered by Mélaine. A big thank you to her.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The small cranes that will be positioned on the side and all along the large building.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Now the stacks of boxes. All crates are in photo cut. On photos made in strong macro, PE edges are visible. But to the naked eye none of this can be seen.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Here. I still have to do the big crane and the big building. I almost reached the end of the quay section. Everything is tidy waiting for the final assembly.

Image

Good day to you all.

Best Regards
Alain.

I have missed your post Alain!
But it is easy to see why it has been a while: that's an enormous amount of work, especially at such a level of finesse.

Fantastic work, and I'm looking very much forward to seeing the rest!

Cheers,

Marijn
